Perfect Plus One: Oprah Live In New York City

By   |   October 24, 2009   |   Entertainment

Perfect Plus One has branched out! Look for exciting, new contributors to the section every week!

img_12061On Fridays, talk show titan Oprah Winfrey does her show live, and two weeks ago, she was in TV DivaGal’s hometown of NYC.

The TV DivaGal couldn’t attend the festivities, so she sent me Sakeena Nicole, Perfect Plus One and bonafide Oprah FANatic, to capture the day’s activities. Here’s my storyΓǪ

“I get through media check with my heart racing, anticipating my once-in-a-lifetime moment to meet the most amazing, magnificent woman to grace this earth. Right now, IΓÇÖm the luckiest girl ever to see my Shero, the big Kahuna, the queen of daytime; yes, Miss Oprah Winfrey!

My heart pulsates out of control as my inner thoughts enlighten my smile. I just can’t believe I’m in the same city, let alone the same arena, with Oprah. img_1177

My imagination goes into overdrive: Oprah will walk up and say, ΓÇ£Hey Sakeena, nice to see you again. Why not come up on stage and host the show with me,” as I respond, ΓÇ£No problem, sure.ΓÇ¥

Because itΓÇÖs a party! An Oprah party, right in the middle of New York City’s Central Park. What better place for her to host her show for 10,000 lucky audience members.

Stop. Focus. I’m here on official TV DivaGal business, which means I’m in the media pit.img_1178

The audience is simmering with energy, clapping and dancing to the tunes of Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige and one of my favorite groups the Black Eyed Peas before the taping begins. Music can be heard across the park as I witness bystanders screaming out, ΓÇ£I Love you, Oprah.ΓÇ¥

As the cameras pass one section of the audience, they throw up their signs praising Oprah, dressed in their best and brightest.

I would have done almost anything to be in that audience, dancing and having a great time on camera. I was cute that day, and my kind of cuteness deserves its camera time!


Oprah’s on stage now, wielding a gold mic and playing her new theme song. How awesome is it that its ΓÇ£I Gotta FeelingΓÇ¥ by the Black Eyed Peas. She sure knows how to pick the best artists, and for that matter, the best books and the best locations ΓÇô NYC!

As a fellow fan screams out “I love you, Orpah,” she gives it right back. “I love you, too. What’s up New York!” she exclaims.

For a double bang, MariahΓÇÖs in the house! img_11941

She is breathtaking, her bodacious body dressed in black, wearing diamond earrings gifted by Oprah, and showing off her incredible voice with a platinum-gold mic. Her husband Nick Cannon ΓÇô a major hottie ΓÇô brightens up MariahΓÇÖs day by kissing her live in front of the world.

All of a sudden, Hugh Jackman stirs the audience by strolling down the aisle screaming, “Oprah!” And Oprah has no clue!

She jokes, “No more surprising Oprah, that’s it guys.” To see Oprah just as surprised at his appearance as the rest of us adds to the fun. “

Oprah allows an audience member to come on stage for a photo op (should of been me!), and invited another to get their first issue of O magazine autographed. Even a puppy made its way on stage. Incredible!img_1207

What more could I ask for? The weather is great, and I’m experiencing these moments among my fellow fans screaming for Oprah.

It’s magical.img_1182

Love u Oprah! Love u Mariah! Love u TV DivaGal.”
