Busy Philipps Says Yes, the ‘Busy Tonight’ Oprah Phone Is Real & She’s Still Waiting for a Call (*Hint, Hint*)
Jordin Althaus/E! Entertainment

Busy Philipps’s new late-night talk show Busy Tonight is entertaining for many reasons (her candid interview style, the Pinterest-worthy set, etc.). But the most unique facet of her show? Without question, the Oprah phone.

For those unfamiliar, the host has a landline on set that only Oprah Winfrey has the number for. So when PureWow exclusively sat down with Philipps, 39, to talk about her new show and her longtime Michaels partnership, we had to ask: Is the Oprah phone real?

Philipps assured us, yes, it’s real, but it hasn’t rung just yet. She explained, “I wasn’t lying! They gave Oprah’s people the number. I’m a huge fan. I have been my entire life. So, we’ll see if she calls. I hope so.”

The Busy Tonight host also mentioned she’d like “Oprah wrapped with a bow” for Christmas, so we’re hoping Santa (or Oprah) comes through this year.

Until then, we’ll be sitting by the phone, Queen O.
