She is a multi-billionaire that had one of the most popular talk shows of all time, owns her own television network and magazine, and has even been nominated for an Academy Award.
But is there anything that Oprah Winfrey can’t do?
The answer appears to be no as her long-time friend Gayle King shared a snap on Instagram of the 59-year-old philanthropist fixing a lavatory at her Maui home on Sunday
Oprah seems to have dived right in as she has both of her hands in the upper deck of the toilet.
The talk show host might have been a bit overdressed for a rendezvous with the porcelain throne as she wore a brown fedora, white hooded sweatshirt, and yoga pants while trying to fix it.
Her friend and editor at large of Oprah’s O Magazine shared the snap with the caption: ‘Stars they are just like us @Oprah at her other job plumber ….who knows how to fix the toilet.’
Sharing private moments is not out of the ordinary for the pair as Oprah and Gayle have had a long time friendship that dates back to 1976.
The pair have such a public bond that rumours have spread about the two being ‘more than friends.’
The media mogul addressed these whispers alongside her BFF in an interview for her own O Magazine in August 2006.
Oprah said: ‘I understand why people think we’re gay. There isn’t a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. So I get why people have to label it—how can you be this close without it being sexual? How else can you explain a level of intimacy where someone always loves you, always respects you, admires you?‘
Besides tinkering with the loo, the Chairwoman of the OWN network has been racking up nominations for her role as Gloria Gaines in The Butler.
Last Wednesday she was nominated by BAFTA in the Best Supporting Actress category and recently received her first SAG Award nomination.
Perhaps the star could earn her second Academy Award nomination as she was nominated for her role in The Color Purple in 1986.
The Butler is a biographical film that follows Cecil Gaines, played by Forest Whitaker, who serves eight U.S. Presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House. It is in theaters now.
