Behind the Scenes at Oprah's Lifeclass

Have you ever thought about what you would wear to an Oprah Show taping (or any taping of a show)?  I've had to think about this several times, and each time it gets more difficult.  I have my favorite top or two, but are they television worthy?  Anyway, this last time I went, I had my daughter take pictures of each outfit to help me decide what it looked like on camera.  This is what I went with.

The outfit I picked for an Oprah Show taping

So if you ever catch an episode of Lifeclass: Fatherless Sons on OWN, look for me in this.

Audience at Harpo Studios in Chicago

These are the types of chairs that we sit on during the taping.  Once the audience fills them in, you really can't tell what they look like.

The glass straws Oprah uses for her guests

Have you ever noticed that cool glass straws that Oprah uses for her guests?  These are the glasses of water waiting on the tables before the taping started.  They were covered in cling wrap to keep them fresh.

Oprah and her guest speakers for Lifeclass: Fatherless Sons

I had a seat behind the speakers, which got me on camera a lot, but I couldn't really see them during the taping.  I liked this shot I got of Oprah smiling at one of the guest speakers.

Cameramen at the taping of Oprah's Lifeclass

There are several camera's filming at once.  This one is attached to this camera man with a person walking behind him carrying the cord.

He can see what he is taping on the little screen below him.  He doesn't look into the camera.

My tweet made it onto the screen at Oprah's Lifeclass

I know it's a little blurry, but my tweet made it onto the screen during the show.  If you look closely you can see Sonja @happyhoyt underneath it.

This was the "door" we left the building from.  It was a different exit than any other time I had been there.  I love seeing all these new sections of Harpo Studios.  I like to see how things are done behind the scenes.  Hope you enjoyed seeing it as well.


  1. How cool! I love tapings but always get so focused on the behind-the-scenes stuff that I miss a lot of the actual program. Still fun, though. :-)

    1. You can always watch the program when it airs, right? Then you won't miss a thing!

  2. Visiting from Mamabuzz :-) I'd love to attend an Oprah taping - what a fun thing to do. Thank you for sharing your experience.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! I have been several times and written about them all. They are under the "oprah" hot topics section if you want to check them out. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. The taping would have been fun to attend. Oprah is one talented lady and it's nice you were allowed to take photos to share.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.
