“I got a little choked up seeing you guys today,” Oprah told the “Steve Harvey” show audience. “What I really miss is the camaraderie with the audience every day. So when I’m watching the show and the whole ‘Ask Steve’ segment and your ability to connect to the audience, I did that for 25 years,” she said.
Unlike many TV personalities, Oprah walked away from her show when it was still successful, and she explained why. “I never wanted to get to the spot where I thought, ‘Well, I am done in this moment,’” she said. “I wanted to keep rising and to leave while I was still rising.”
Oprah can still be found interviewing celebrities one-on-one on her series “Next Chapter,” but she usually engages in conversation at stars’ homes now, not in front of a live audience.
