During the show, Tiffany shared with Ellen DeGeneres information about the first time she ever met Oprah:

I did this movie called Their Eyes Were Watching God and I was an extra and it was a movie that Oprah was producing.  She had walked by and I was making all the other extras laugh… She said, 'You’re a very funny young lady.' I was like [eeeee!] and she said, 'What’s your name?’ I said, ‘My name is Tiffany Haddish, and I’m a stand-up comedian. She said, ‘Well, keep me updated on your career, write me, let me know what you got going on. I left comedy, I said, ‘Oh yeah, I know, I know.' And so, I would write her, right? She never wrote back.

That was the moment when Ellen said:

Let's ask her why she didn’t write back. Oprah, why didn’t you write back?

And to everybody’s, including Tiffany, surprise out came Oprah. The trio then cooked together.
