Missouri paralegal Melodie Chrisman has an Oprah coffee cup given to her by “the queen herself.” Chrisman has been unusually lucky in her applications to attend The Oprah Winfrey show – she’s been four times.
In 2002 she was a guest on an Oprah show about bullying. In 2007 Chrisman scored an invite to an Oprah show about paying it forward. Each audience member was given $1,000 to “pay forward,” along with a return visit to share how the money was spent. Snafus during the taping of that show earned audience members an invitation to yet another show.
Now that Oprah’s taping her last season, Chrisman has already submitted an e-mail to attend another show.
Kudos to Chrisman for her persistence, which has clearly paid off. Now, I’d love to hear how she spent that $1,000.
