I want to meet Oprah!! With a Giveaway!!!

Hey hey friends!!!! I have written to the producers for Ms. Oprah to see if she will meet with me. What I have done is I have proposed an interview with Oprah- but that I get to be the interviewer on behalf of viewers. Now it's your turn- WHAT DO YOU WANT TO KNOW? I want your help! I want to know what you want to know!!

CTV has now interviewed me and I'll be featured on the news tonight at 6:00pm EST. So watch for me.



As you all know Kristi at Visible Voice is hosting a giveaway.



















A $30.00 gift card for Chapters!!!


So head over to Kristi's blog Visible Voice (click here) for contest rules. (This is a MUST so you know how to enter properly) This giveaway has been extended until midnight so you still have time!

Share! Share! Share! Vote Melissa to meet Oprah!

So here are some starter questions or potential discussion topics:

  • what is your best childhood memory?
  • what experience in life has served to educate you the most?
  • of all the people you've interviewed, who is the first one that comes to mind when I ask t his question?
  • do you keep in regular contact with your family?
  • do you ever go to visit your hometown?
  • what price have you paid for giving up anonymity for a public life?
  • reflectively, do you feel it has been worth it?
  • do you enjoy your work?
  • how many viewer letters do you personally read?
  • when you leave this world how do you want your story to be told?
  • how do you meet your make-up artist?
Deep and meaningful or shallow and interesting- what would be a good interview question?

{PS-If you've already commented you'll see that I've put your comments into this post so to make it easier to pick a WINNER!}

  23. Hi Melissa, I would love to know what the next 10 years look like for her, what plans does she have after retiring from her talk show? As most of us did, I grew up watching Oprah, and I know that it is going to be odd not having her on tv everyday at 4pm.

    Best of Luck!

  24. Ask Oprah "Which possession, that you still have, have you had for the longest amount of time? And what is your most prized possession?"

    Also "if you could eat only one food for the rest of your life what would it be?"

    I'd ask her so many other things, but she'd never answer my prying questions.
