Oprah Has to Go! Makes Late Night Pit Stop in SoCal

A guy working late in Santa Monica Thursday night was surprised to not only have someone at his door asking to use the restroom – but to have that someone be none other than Oprah!

As Page 6 reports:

We’re told that on Thursday around 10:30 p.m., a black SUV pulled up in front of an anonymous office building in Santa Monica — and a woman climbed out and knocked on the door. The owner of a blog called World WideKat, who was working late, opened up, and he was shocked to see “Selma” director Ava DuVernay.

“I have Oprah and she really has to pee!” DuVernay exclaimed. “Can she use your bathroom?”

The dude obliged and was nice enough to take a photo with the guy after.  He then forwarded to the photo to a friend who posted to Instagram with the caption, “The woman needs to use the ladies room and she stops by our freaking office! What are the odds for gods sakes? I’m in shock.”

Oprah’s rep told Page 6 that DuVernay had actually been working at another company in the same building earlier in the day and that Oprah had been giving her a lift back to her car.
