Transcript for Oprah Winfrey on Encounter with Elephant, Lindsay Lohan Interview on OWN
We just heard so much about this great, new film, from lee daniels. It's "the butler." Not your only news. I want to ask about something that's a bucket list item for me, a safari. Oh. You and steadman were able to take -- you must do it. I have to. We have video because an elephant really wanted to meet oprah. What do we see? We just arrived at the resort in the serengeti. And the guy's like, we were watching one of them. And he comes up. And I was like -- he came back and I dropped my camera, which is what people do. Keep filming, keep filming. But the elephant came back. He was on my side. And I was ready to drop that camera. Then, it was calm and steady as he always is. And then, we went -- I saw everything. Giraffes, lions. Isn't it beautiful? Yes. It's more than beautiful. Trying to change the ecosystem. It's an important thing to see right now. And the serengeti. I've done other safaris. It's so expansive. There's nothing but land as far as the eye can see. It makes it all the difference. Then, you come back and start working again. There you go. You get the interview with lindsay lohan. That was a great interview we did saturday. And it's going to air on own on AUGUST 18th. I love this show, so positive all the time. I thought it was really great. I thought she was in the best place I've ever seen here. But I haven't seen her since 2009 or '06 or something. I believe that she believes that she is now ready. Good. And she admitted there were other times when she was pretending to be ready and not sure. And she was being put in a position where she had to go to rehab. This was the first time I could see, that she feels that it will benefit her. And we've seen her laugh at herself, which is refreshing. She seemed to me more comfortable in her skin, which is the goal for all of us, right? I will tell you here, at the end of the interview, I said, look. I have some concerns because i hear you're going to europe. And I just came from europe. And europe is the place to go when you want to feel really good. And relaxed and have a -- it's very hard to go to ka gri and not have a belini. I said to her, I just was interviewing tina turner. Oh. I want to ask about the wedding. I was trying not to eat a croissant. But you're in france. So, I was saying, if I were you, I would think about it. And she texted me and said i will think about it. I already paid for it. And this morning, she decided not to go. Really? Wow. Will stay here and work on herself. She's listening. Isn't that good? I'm so happy to hear and crowd of her for that conclusion. We talked about tina. Oh, tina. That is such exciting news. She asked everybody else to wear white because she came in black and gray. Yes, she did. It was the happiest day of her life. She looked so beautiful. And she was happy. I spent with her the day before. We talked for three hours without the camera. This is the happiest time in her life. And she deserves it. There is something I wanted to ask you about. You were at the height of what you were doing and wanted something new and different. And many of us are at cross roads sometimes. How were you able to do it? And are you doing what it is that yaw want to do now? Own, we turned it around. It's better to make money. Than to lose it. You put your heart into this. And you said, I'm going to make it such -- you can't listen to the naysayers. You have to hold on to what it is you want to do. I'm grateful that tyler perry came and allowed us to make some headway. All of the staples of own, that's a cloosz you'll be doing. I'm looking forward to that. Master class and supersoul wund. That's the rchb I wanted to do it. And medicating, as well, right? Is it in your office, a bell goes off a couple times a day? It does. At 9:00 and 5:00. Does it remind you to be present? It reminds people that medication is going on. Very nice. You have one of those. It means cocktail hour. I'm right there with you. It's a tricky thing. Thank you so much. Namaste. Can we do another half hour
