Not even one week after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s groundbreaking interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS, the 67-year-old television mogul already has another tell-all interview in the works, and it’s debuting tomorrow.
Yup, just six days after Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special was released, Winfrey is premiering a newly recorded interview—this time, with HGTV stars and married couple Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Super Soul special, which is set to premiere on Discovery+ on March 13, features the Fixer Upper stars participating in the sit-down at what looks like a similar location as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview.
During an exclusive clip from the interview (watch the People exclusive video here), the couple opened up to the TV host about their work and home life together, including the difficulties of dealing with fame.
“I have discovered that fame is just, your life is the same, you're the same, and everybody has an idea of what that is, it's just more people know your name. And I think if you don't know who you are when the fame thing hits then you lose yourself,” Oprah said in the footage. “Did you all start to sense that, or did you know that you were grounded before the fame thing hit?”
“I want to speak on Jo's behalf because she would never say things like this, but she is so incredibly wise, so incredibly grounded—all the things that you just described, is who Joanna is," Chip responded. "Really what happened—and was the truth for Jo and I—was it was no big deal for her, but for me to become famous, I lost a part of myself that was really…it was sad. I would say it took me a year or two while I was still filming to try to grapple with what exactly it was that I was losing.”
Unfortunately, the exclusive video is only over a minute long so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to unpack the rest.
