One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Oh O snap!!
How could you not!?
Not only was the 3.5 pound (!!!) wig custom-made by O's hairstylist Andre Walker and Kim Kimble, it also had its OWN name!!
"I wish I could say it was all mine. In fact, though, it's borrowed. And it feels like carrying around an extra head. My own hair is shorter, not quite so spherical, and a lot lighter…For almost 30 years, I've had the luxury of a hairdresser, Andre Walker, who loves all kinds of hair textures and adores experimenting. Hence this month's cover; we call the wig I'm wearing Wild Thang!"
Definitely an excellent moniker! LOLz! And based on BFF Gayle King's reaction, she agrees!
After seeing O with Wild Thang on her head, Gayle said:
"Can someone put on the soundtrack to The Lion King?"
HA! Hair-kuna matata, Oprah!
