Tiffany Haddish’s light could not burn any brighter if it tried. The hilarious and humble comedienne was treated to a surprise visit from Oprah Winfrey during her interview on “The Ellen Show.” Her reaction was both sweet and funny!
It all started with an interview with Ellen Degeneres and Tiffany Haddish where she is speaking to Ellen about her plan to start a vegetable garden with Oprah Winfrey.
The actress explains that they would grow veggies in Oprah’s yard and sell them at farmer’s markets. It would be called “Tiff and Oh’s” because she probably would be doing most of the work!
A very amused Ellen asked her about meeting Oprah before.
Haddish went on to explain how she once worked as an extra on set of a movie that Oprah produced. While she was a part of the production, she would crack jokes to the cast.
Oprah allegedly once took notice and told her that she should write her so she could keep up with the different things that she’s doing.
Tiffany, of course, wrote Ms. Winfrey and never got a response. Ellen wanted to get down to the bottom of why Oprah never wrote back so she called out to Oprah who suddenly appeared on stage.
Haddish was so surprised and delighted to be in the legendary mogul’s presence that she became overwhelmed with tears of joy. The two embraced multiple times.
Oprah told the comedienne: “You are so so so good.”
To which Tiffany responded mid-cry: “Thank you! You told me that before in a dream!”
As you can see in the sweet clip above, it seemed that the two forgot about Ellen!
