Oprah Gives Away Seven-Day Cruises

She’s going out with a bang: Oprah Winfrey’s final “favorite things” episode aired on Friday—she’s going off the air in September—and things got crazy. Medics were standing by when Oprah announced the theme—one man collapsed to the ground in tears, but no one was critically injured. Day one of the two-day give-away special episode started off with Winfrey handing out an “Oprah” watch, with 58 hand-set diamonds, then a Tory Burch flannel tote, a Nikon D3100 digital camera, and Judith Ripka Eclipse canary crystal earrings with white sapphires. Other gifts included a seven-day cruise for each of her audience members, who had been hand-picked for helping their own communities and custom-made closets for each guest courtesy of the Container Store.
