Oprah crashed a Weight Watchers meeting and of course everyone went NUTS

Our girl Oprah Winfrey, lover of bread, just delighted a Weight Watchers meeting in New York City by making a surprise appearance.

Winfrey, who was in town for a screening of her new show Greenleaf at the Tribeca Film Festival, snuck into the class along with her best friend Gayle King to a round of cheers and applause by befuddled meeting members, People reported.

The group was attending a class by Winfrey’s coach, Lisa Levy Shaub, who was the only person who knew she would be making a guest visit. Winfrey announced in January that she lost 26 pounds on the program and has been an outspoken advocate of the company, in addition to being a stakeholder and spokeswoman.

“It was kind of hilarious … there was a slow discovery, and people were all doing double takes, screaming, but it took a second before it hit people,” Levy Shaub told People. “And there was applause, and people saying, ‘We don’t believe it!’ and hands on their faces, and smiles. It was amazing. It was perfect.”

In the video, which you can watch on Winfrey’s Facebook page, Oprah said this was the first in-person class she had ever attended, since she typically uses the program online.


Levy Shaub added: “It was fantastic, it was clear that she really was interested and wanting to be a part of the meeting, and really see what the meeting experience was like.”

So jealous we missed this meeting.
