TMZ cameras did their usual ambush impromptus and caught up with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey in Georgetown this past Sunday and did what only they are notoriously known for: asking half-co(ked, evasive, off the wall questions of celebrities on route to wherever they are going and reporting it.
The 60 year-old self made billionaire, who earned a mere $77 million dollars in 2013, was asked how much she is typically asked for when people ask to borrow money from her. Believe it or not, she responded: “This is what I find, people ask for money depending on what they think you have. So when I was making $22,000 a year, people always need $50. Then when I moved to like $50,000, everybody also needed $500. Now nobody needs anything less than $50,000.”
Winfrey is widely known for a lot of charity work, organizations, giveaways, and fleet surprises 🙂 and over the years, in total, she has spent more than $100 million dollars on the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy: a school for girls in South Africa.
It was just recently announced that she will be traveling around the world empowering all on her national empowerment tour (called: “”Oprah’s The Life You Want”) in which she will be gracing eight cities with her presence this fall.
What’s the cost of tickets?
Starting price is $99 and maximum price is $999 which includes the chance to meet Oprah herself during the experience.
