Oprah Finally Called Busy Philipps—Here’s What Happened
PureWow spoke with Busy Philipps exclusively at the beginning of the holiday season and she revealed all she wanted for Christmas was a call from Oprah Winfrey. Well, Santa totally came through this year, because guess who gave the Busy Tonight host a ring(ding-a-ling-a-ling) last night?
It was a seemingly normal night on the show when suddenly the Oprah phone rang and it was (obviously) Oprah. Philipps immediately started sobbing, people cheered, and Oprah said she was “just calling to make sure this doggone phone works.” Oprah went on to share that she just came in from the garden and had harvested the largest tangerines she’d ever seen. This thrilled Philipps.
Oprah told the Busy Tonight host, “It’s so good to see a woman on late-night,” and Philipps thanked her for calling and said, “I know you have a salad to make.”
They ended the call with Oprah inviting Philipps to “come over some time.”
Welp, Philipps’s life was just made.
