You might read headlines about Oprah paying her own bills or buying her own lattes and think, ‘Wow. US$2.8 billion, and she’s just like us.’
But alas, she’s not. She’s really, truly not.
In a recent interview with E! News the legendary media baron reminded us ordinary folk what it means to be rich when she conceded she doesn’t refuel her car. Ever.
“I gotta just say, I wouldn’t know what to do,” the 64-year-old said.
OK, so she can’t fill a tank. But could she be President? (Post continues below.)
In fact, the last documented time the California-based woman tried to use a petrol pump was in 2006 while on a televised road trip with her best friend, Gayle King. (A station employee intervened.)
Prior to that, it was in 1983.
“The pumps aren’t the same as they used to be,” she explained.
That’s not the only mundane task Oprah won’t bother herself with.
