It is now open season on stereotypes of chunky housewives, as Oprah’s show today was filmed on a set made entirely of chocolate.
Chocolate seats, chocolate tables, a chocolate chess set, a chocolate grandfather clock, chocolate wall coverings, chocolate flowers in a chocolate vase … on and on. The set, created by Larry Abel, even includes a chocolate fireplace. (Warning: Do not light a real fire in there.)
Part promotion, part wow factor, the set was created with nearly 7,000 Godiva chocolate bars and 2,400 Godiva truffles. There’s a chandelier made from 1,500 pieces of chocolate. [The Oprah Blog]
I’m going to guess that Oprah bypassed the opportunity to have a guest, and instead just read “Cathy” comics all hour. Reached for comment, the studio audience said, “NOM NOM NOM.”
