KIIS FM Hosts Oprah Finale Party and Surprises Some Big Fans
On May 25th, Oprah took the stage for the final time to remind her viewers some of her most important lessons taught from years past. LA radio station KIIS FM and Ryan Secreast brought together some of Oprah’s biggest fans to watch the finale and have a day of pampering at the JW Marriot in Downtown LA.
Guests were treated to massages (compliments of the Ritz Carlton spa) hair styling and make up tutorials as well as plenty of Oprah’s favorite things. Throughout the afternoon, lucky attendees were given some sweet swag, a la the Favorite Things show, including a leopard print snuggie, Dreamgirl robes, a variety of makeup products and a copy of some of Oprah’s favorite DVDs and books. Please note that reporters were not lucky enough to receive the same perks as guests, so I can not attest to the fabulous-ness of these things. But it was pretty fun anyway!
Winners were also surprised by the appearance of Jake Simpson, an Oprah show favorite and Star Search album, who sang a variety of Stevie Wonder songs and some originals. Watch Jake being surprised himself when Oprah arranged for him to sing with his idol Stevie Wonder on the show!
The afternoon ended on a bittersweet note with the broadcast of Oprah’s final episode. The room, filled with Oprah fans, went silent for the final moments of the show, where Oprah did not say goodbye, but “Till we meet again.” There was not a dry eye in the house. And by the way, I’m pretty sure I’m going to be the news tonight sobbing while a reporter asks me if Oprah was like a surrogate mother (I said yes, of course).
Check out some photos from the event!
This woman was VERY happy with her gifts..
I know honey badger don’t care, but what did you think of the Oprah finale?
