Oprah, are you channeling your inner President Obama again? 5700 Wilshire Blvd is about to become the 1600 Pennsylvania Ave of the entertainment industry when Lady O moves to Tinseltown
It’s going to be a Hollywood-style takeover when Sergeant Oprah Winfrey prepares to invade Los Angeles and wrap up her 24-year talk show in Chicago. And it appears that O, 55, may have a pretty powerful partner-in-crime: at least location wise.
Ryan Seacrest confirmed on his talk show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest, this morning, Jan. 22, that Oprah is taking over a massive amount of office space – nearly 60,000 freakin’ square feet – in Ryan’s office building at 5700 Wilshire Blvd.
We know how Oprah rolls – yeah, that means she doesn’t do anything in a small way – which is why we weren’t surprised that she the talk show queen has already specially requested that a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf coffee shop be built inside the building before her arrival.
Could this be a sign of things to come? Office workers around the 5700 area sure hope so. Several employees tell HollywoodLife.com they’ve long been sick of the eatery options in the area and they trust Oprah’s presence will certainly revive the dire lunchtime food situation there.
Besides a dismal little deli and a smattering of food trucks that line the corridor, there ain’t much fine cuisine in the area that can satiate O’s substantial appetite. Could you imagine seeing Oprah just stroll into Koo Koo Roo shovel mashed potatoes onto a plastic plate all by herself?
Just watch out when you see Ryan and Oprah, heads bent, cackling furiously over fried chicken and building plans. Then you KNOW some serious shiz is about to go down!
