Did Y’all See ‘The Barprah’? (It’s Barbie! It’s Oprah!)

I know I’m supposed to be putting up more highlights from the book tour, and I will, this is just a brief interruption. I just had to find out if you guys caught yesterday’s Oprah.

She had the woman whom the Barbie doll was named after as a guest on the show, and the woman presented O with her very own black Barbie doll!

As you can see, Oprah was pretty excited about it.

Big O…meet Little O.

The doll was still considered a “Barbie,” but that just didn’t seem right, so I’ve named it “Barprah.” If you hear the doll referred to that way in the future, know that whomever’s calling it that bit it from me. But I digress…

Look at how mesmerized O is over her doll…

Like that Barbie lady was actually going to come on the show and not have an Oprah-influenced Barbie when she showed up. As if.

You know the second her people got the call for her to appear on the show, they commenced to scrambling and mocking up dolls.

I’ll bet they’ve got at least a hundred different Barprah prototypes in a Mattel warehouse somewhere—a bevy of ill-conceived misses until they finally hit on the right look with this red-dressed, teensy-waisted, glamorous Barprah

…with her itsy-bitsy bling bag.

Barprah and her red dress were based on the gown Oprah wore to her Legends Ball.

I can’t wait for the day they present me with a Barlita*. Hey, a girl can dream.

(Although, with a name like Barlita, my doll will probably come with a crack pipe and a brown paper bag with a bottle of Hpnotiq stuffed inside. Natch.)
