Oprah Mentions Grand Rapids on Ellen Like We’re Old Friends!
So Grand Rapids has been getting some love lately both in different rankings, like being one of the Top Places to Retire and Second Best City In Nation For People With Disabilities, and on TV with one of the biggest celebrities, Oprah!
Oprah did her first 60 Minutes piece from here in GR and then yesterday she was on Ellen and brought us up again in casual conversation.
Oprah and Ellen were talking about being neighbors and how they share a fence but keep missing each other when trying to wave hello.
It's towards the end of the clip, but Oprah told a story about a couple weeks back when Ellen texted to wave at her by the fence (which sounds like it’s a long way from both of their homes) but Oprah couldn’t wave because she was in Grand Rapids!
Ok, nothing spectacular, but nice that she mentions us like we’re old friends!
