Being friends with Oprah is pretty much the best proof of making it in life. We can all imagine actually wanting to be friends with Oprah, but the scenario where Oprah would want to be friends with us seems to be very unlikely. She meets so many interesting people that it almost feels like you’d be putting a burden on her to annoy her with your presence.
Here’s a few celebrities that are considered to be among Oprah’s best friends, just so you know what level of fame you have to aim for if you want to get in Oprah’s inner circle.
