Oprah, Andy Cohen


Much ink has been devoted to the racially tinged handbag diss lobbed at Oprah Winfrey by a Swiss shop clerk. But on Thursday night, the media mogul scored a reprieve from the controversy with a welcome change of pace: a laid-back and lighthearted appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

In Oprah's first visit to the show—her latest promotional stop to hawk her awards-baiting new film Lee Daniels' The Butler—the 59-year-old sipped vodka tonics while shooting the breeze with Andy Cohen about a random (and, at times, borderline risqué!) pastiche of topics.

On the shortlist: big boobs, her bucket list and…twerking?!

But first up: the topic of marriage.

"I don't know if I wanna do that," Oprah answered, directly and nonplussed, when Cohen touched on whether she and beau Stedman Graham would ever tie the knot.

"It's really good right now, and when you add that 'wife' thing, then too much," she explained.

Oprah was also happy to weigh in on a few lighter topics, including what she might have on her bucket list.

Bottom line: There is no list.

"I don't," she answered when asked if she kept a checklist of stuff she'd eventually like to do. "I don't do that thing. I really do try to just live in the moment."

Those moments, apparently, don't include twerking: The Queen of All Media was suitably stumped when Cohen wondered if she knew how to do Miley Cyrus' fave dance move.

"No, I don't know what it is," she responded. "Should I? That's what people want to know about me?!"

Oprah even proved to be a good enough sport to poke fun at The Butler costar Terrence Howard's famously raunchy comments about her, um, ample bosom.

"It's OK, because they really are big!" she said good naturedly.

To which we can only respond: Can we please have the Oprah back on Watch What Happens Live very, very soon?
