Grocery shopping is a mundane task that most of us do regularly, but when you’re Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey, you have someone do the shopping for you. So what happens when the two biggest names in daytime talk go shopping together?
Well, obviously, hilarity ensues. Ellen and Oprah admittedly hadn’t been in a grocery store in years and when the two decided to pick up a few items, all chaos broke out.
You can watch below as Ellen and Oprah walk up and down the aisle, handling fruits and vegetables, and cause a spectacle. It didn’t take long for a large crowd to gather around the two famous women, and they interacted with fans who found their shopping trip became the perfect spot for a photo op.
This is a two-part video series that Ellen debuted on The Ellen Degeneres Show. You may see the first part below.
Ellen and Oprah have a lot more in common then squeezing fruits and vegetables in grocery stores. Beside the fact the two were in strict competition with their afternoon talk shows, they both are actresses and producers. It’s refreshing to see Ellen and Oprah together as the media pitted them against each other for years.
Ellen DeGeneres currently has 12 projects in development that she is producing. These include a Netflix stand up special, a project with Monica Potter, a series based on Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham, and the television series Ellen’s Game of Games.
When Oprah isn’t comparing cucumber sizes in grocery stores and contemplating paying for people’s items in bars of gold, she’s busy producing award-winning programs for her Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), as well as the silver screen.
Oprah is currently producing 11 projects including Netherland, America: In The King Years, Terms of Endearment, The Color Purple, and The Invention of Wings.
Both Ellen and Oprah will exercise their acting skills in upcoming movies. Oprah is soon to appear in A Wrinkle in Time and The Star. Ellen will appear in Dog Show.
