2017’s breakout star Tiffany Haddish continues to make waves in the industry but it doesn’t stop the Groupon queen from fanning out when being surprised by “Mother O”. Well, then again who wouldn’t fan out with Oprah?
The South Central Los Angeles native was surprised by the media mogul on her February 22nd appearance on The Ellen Show. Haddish, is a gardener who grows her own vegetables and gawked over Oprah’s farmland and proposed a “business plan” that would include her and Winfrey traveling to farmers markets around the country and growing their vegetables together.
Winfrey was already a guest on the show earlier that day, but Ellen reiterated that the Wrinkle in Time star had left the building. To Haddish surprise Ellen had Winfrey rejoin them on stage.
Haddish, begin to sob and fan out telling Winfrey that “I love you.” Oprah, told Haddish “I am so proud of you”. In a beautiful exchange of sentiments.
The pair also had a minor interaction in previous years. “I did this movie called Their Eyes Are Watching God, and I was an extra,” Haddish said. “It was a movie Oprah was producing, and she had walked by and I was making all the other extras laugh and stuff. I was telling jokes and she was like, ‘You’re a very funny lady.’”
The legend told Haddish to “keep her updated on her career,” which resulted in the latter sending Winfrey letters that went unanswered. However, that didn’t dampen the reunion as a gleeful Haddish still shed a few tears.
