Your OWN Show: Only One Of The Many Ways Oprah Makes Dreams Come True

January 19, 2011 04:00 PM by Veronica Dudo

Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star is all about making dreams come true—something the Queen of Daytime Talk knows plenty about! Through her 25 years on national television, she has helped many people along the way. On Tuesday, Oprah’s Ultimate Australian Adventure debuted showcasing her December 2010 trip Down Under!“Come along with us and feel the beauty of Australia.” Oprah said of the four day television event.

Australia welcomed Oprah with open arms, in one episode she excitedly says, “I have an ‘O’ on the bridge in Sydney!”

The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Farwell Season has been full of surprises and Oprah’s trip was no different. She knocked on doors, walked nearly 500 feet above the Sydney Harbor, sailed her fleet of sail boats with first mate Russell Crowe and visited the world renowned Sydney Opera House.

Oprah even met with Julia Gillard, Australia’s first female Prime Minister. During their private conversation along the bank of the Yarra River Oprah asked, “How exciting is it for you to be the first female prime minister of this country, or does that even register for you?”

Prime Minister Gillard answered, “I don’t get up and think, ‘I’m a woman doing this job,’ but if there’s a girl in an Australian school who lifts her eyes that day and sees me, and says, ‘I can do anything. I can grow up to be anything,’ that’s just so important.”

A historical grand finale with an all star cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Jay-Z, Bono, Russell Crowe, Olivia Newton-John, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, and Bon Jovi is scheduled to conclude Friday on ABC.

Also, be sure to look for behind-the-scenes footage from Oprah’s Australian Adventure to air on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

    Hello Oprah, I am a 74 (going on 30) year old lady, who has so many ideas in this old brain of mine that I would love to share with the world. I would love for every one to know that there is life left in so many of us 70 plus year olds…and we have so much to share our younger counterparats due to all of life’s choices that we have made, both right and wrong. You are a true inspiration and an absolute blessing to all of mankind….I would love to meet you, someday, before I leave this world. About myself, I am single, have been for years, due to the ending of a very unhappy marriage…yet in all my single years I have tried to succeed in many avenues: as an artist, actress, waitress, piano player, tap dancer, gardener,a rescuer of abandoned animals, and mentor to my two daughters and son. I just lost my adored son, Rob in a tragic scuba diving accident in Calif. ( He died on Sept. 11th 2010) In my greif, I am trying to come to some sort of peace, by finding solace in some new purpose of my life. I feel like time is short…but there has to be some way in which I can be available to help other women in my age group to find renewed purposes in their lives. I would love to talk to you about my thoughts on this and how it could be made into something that would bring all of us not so over the hill ladies together. God bless !!! Carol Lee
