So, a few years back, when Oprah Winfrey famously bestowed upon her audience a slew of brand new cars, she didn't happen to mention to her peeps that she wasn't going to be paying the taxes on this gift, which equalled out to be more than $7,000!
Times have changed, however, and though there were reports that the recent audience members of her premiere show who were given a trip to Australia would have the accept the same deal, we're hearing the Almighty O has already taken care of things.
According to one of the lucky 300 who get to fly with Capt. John Travolta and Oprah down under, a notice was sent out to ensure winners that the trip was 100% free to them and that any taxes attached would be handled by The Oprah Show. Furthermore, Big O is also set to cover any sightseeing or travel-related costs, like passport expenses for people who can't afford them.
How long before a person can be nominated for sainthood? Girl just gives and gives and gives!
