Oprah Winfrey does her own gardening and she loves harvest time. Her tomatoes give her pleasure and her avocados are a point of pride too. Despite being a billionaire she doesn’t like to shell out cash at the grocery store for something she can grow on her own. (Plus, you know, those veggies make for nice photo spreads in O magazine.) In fact, Oprah — the self-made-st of self-made billionaires — is still cost-conscious despite her riches. You know what else she doesn’t want to pay for, besides Avocados from Mexico? Getting her underwear cleaned. You read that right.
On an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, America’s most popular lady admitted she draws the line on getting her lingerie professionally cleaned. When Noah asked Oprah how much “normalcy” there was left in her life, she kind of tried to make up some stuff that was normal. (Somehow, the part about how someone puts a little triangle at the end of her toilet paper roll in the bathroom as soon as she’s done using it didn’t quite strike the regular folk note!)
But Oprah drew the line, damn it, on the underwear issue: “The one thing I will not do is send my underwear out to be washed or cleaned. You know why? Cause it’s $5 for a pair of panties.” That’s the one thing Oprah will not do.
