Remember yesterday when I told you about Oprah’s tweet to me and her producer’s tweet? Well, it was during the preview of this very show that I wrote the tweet that prompted their responses to me!! I have always loved Oprah because of her strength and her will to overcome childhood struggles, but I had no idea that Paula had managed through such struggles too. I think this is the biggest reason I was so touched by the show. I honestly can’t say enough that it spoke to me.

Actually, that interview with Paula about her life that it inspired this… I might be a new person post. And got such a great response from so many of you. Soooo I highly suggest that you make time to watch this  episode on Sunday!

If you enjoy a gut busting laugh and a GREAT story you MUST watch Oprah Winfrey’s new primetime series “Oprah’s Next Chapter”. You can catch a preview by clicking on that link!

The show airs on Sunday, March 4th at  (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. To find what channel OWN is on in your area, go to www.oprah.com/findown

Let’s just say the episode starts out with Paula informing Oprah and Gayle that she’d just had botox and so this “surprised look” was also her sad look, her happy look… HILARIOUS!!! How do  I know? I was lucky enough to get a preview of the upcoming show while I was in Nashville and I laughed harder than I have laughed in a LONG time!

Oprah and her best friend Gayle King head over to the “Queen of Southern Cuisine” Paula Deen’s home in Savannah, Georgia, for a girls night. They wake up and go on a HILARIOUS cat fishing adventure in their jammies! Did you see Oprah and Gayle’s camping adventure? Neither of them are terribly outdoorsy. LOL. ”Oprah, every fish has flopped.”

And Paula’s bungee trampoline. She’s got a bungee trampoline for her grandson, but all three of the ladies take their turn and the words “OMG, my britches are soaked” in reference to bladder control while jumping DO come out of someone’s mouth. icon smile

First of all, I’m not going to ruin the show, but I will tell you that it involves amazing food, I mean it is Paula Deen after all - MAKE SURE to note Gayle when she’s around the food :). That will have you cracking up all on its own.

Then they sit down for an intimate conversation in which Paula shares details of her life. Of  growing  up without food, losing her parents, struggling as a single mom to raise boys. This part had me in tears because Paula spoke to my soul. Her boys also spoke a lot about their mother and their struggles too. It’s touching. Oprah Gayle and Paula
