Until recently, it had been 29 years since Oprah Winfrey has set foot inside a bank.
During a YouTube interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah said, “I went to the bank recently because I hadn’t been to the bank since 1988.” That’s two years after “The Oprah Winfrey Show” premiered on daytime TV.
Ellen then asked, “What did you go to the bank for?” and Oprah said, “To deposit a million dollars.”
As it turns out, Oprah actually carried her own checks for deposit. She said, “Yeah, I just wanted to go there just to do it. I stood in line, just to do it.” She said, “It felt fantastic,” and then corrected the amount of money that she was depositing, “Actually, it was $2 million.”
