My Friend Brian on Oprah

I've mentioned before that I have a friend who works for Oprah. His name is Brian and we've been friends for over ten years.

Brian has been on Oprah before (Oprah and Gayle's Big Adventure, the favorite things show, etc.), but he appeared on the show again today and it was truly amazing. He loves Carol Burnett—loves—and was totally excited that she was going to be a guest. From Oprah's website:

The night before Carol landed in Chicago, Oprah says she ran into Brian, a senior associate producer of The Oprah Show, in the hallway. He told her he hadn't slept in two days. "I said, 'Really? Are you an insomniac?' He said, 'No, Carol Burnett's coming on.' And I said, 'Why haven't you slept?' And he said, 'I just love her so much!'"
So anyway, Oprah planned a little surprise for him and called him out to meet her when she was on. It was so fabulous... Brian cried and it was so funny and sweet. Here they are:


Lucky dog. My sister and I used to watch Carol Burnett's show religiously when we were little. We loved her, Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, and Vicki Lawrence so much. They were so funny.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you. Make sure you watch Oprah today!
