She explained, “I had the best time with myself… I am probably the happiest girl you’ve ever seen, happiest woman, I’m officially a woman at 60.”
Oprah admitted that BFF Gayle King did miss having an over-the-top party. “This is the weekend I’m supposed to be having my big [party] with 456 people, and so Gayle was [saying], ‘Oh we would be getting ready, and people would be…’ and I said, ‘I’m the happiest person ever not to be having a party.’”
Of the festival, Oprah was also happy to be honored for her work in “The Butler” in a place she calls home. “To be able to receive an award from people who are your community means a lot, that’s what we all work for.”
