Oprah Winfrey visits Ellen DeGeneres during her last week of shows

Oprah Winfrey visited DeGeneres on Tuesday.

Winfrey said it makes her emotional to think about the final days of her own daytime talk show, which she ended in 2011.

“I was a little emotional backstage because I saw all your staff were back there. And I said to everyone, ‘I know how it feels that there’s no one left. just a few days, “and I really applaud your team for making this show what it has been for 19 years,” Winfrey said. “Obviously you’re the front face, but it’s everyone there that makes it work. I was just in tears saying, ‘Guys, what a great job you’ve done.

She went on to tell DeGeneres, “I’m in tears because seeing your staff actually triggered me what it feels like when you have all these people who have become your family. This is your home. I was talking to Ron , the audio guy who microphoned me today and who’s been with you for 19 years. And Ron said he was talking to his wife last night and he was like, ‘You know, I just wanted to for the kids to finish high school.” And now his kids are finishing college.”

Adding, “That’s what happens with a show like this where families come together and relationships are made. It becomes the home of, you know, hundreds of people who support you and help you be as awesome as you are.”

Jennifer Aniston, Billie Eilish and P!nk are among the guests who will appear on Thursday’s final episode.
