Oprah Winfrey loves fixing things

oprah-winfrey-19th-critics-choice-movie-awards_4027636 Even though she is one of the most influential and richest women in the USA, Oprah Winfrey is pretty much like anyone else when she’s in her home.

The talk show queen loves fixing things around her house and she recently repaired her partner Stedman Graham’s toilet by herself.

She said: ”When you go to flush it and it didn’t, there’s a little chain that connects to the little line thing that’s gonna connect to the bubble. When the little chain falls down and it drops, then you cannot flush. But if you pick that chain up and you put it in the right little spot, then it flushes.

”So I figured that out because Stedman’s toilet was running and I wanted to fix his without calling a plumber. So what I did, I went oprah-winfrey-the-20th-annual-screen-actors_4031689around and took the tops off of all the other toilets, to see what that was doing, and then I figured out what was missing. It was the chain.”

Besides fixing things, Oprah also does the cooking by herself.

”I’ve had chefs over the years who have come to work for us, and what we’ve learned is it’s much easier for me to just do it myself on the weekends. So when Stedman and I are alone, I basically do all the cooking,” she added.

    Wow! A very interesting and pleasant thing to know about Oprah! Besides the fact, she is a very rich and famous woman, she likes doing simple things around home to please her loved ones. This deserves much admiration. I just do not find it right to discuss the toilet flushing things in the public. Well, maybe this is just my upbringing. Still, I am happy Oprah likes to do some things around her house by herself.
