How Oprah Changed a Gay Guy's Life


When she offered aspiring actor Paolo Presta a speaking role on 'Will & Grace,' his life changed forever

When Oprah surprised aspiring actor Paolo Presta during a "Wildest Dreams" episode with a walk-on speaking role on Will & Grace eight years ago, Presta shook with excitement. At the time he was working at his family's grocery store in the suburbs of Chicago. Now Oprah has caught up with him to where he is now. As the young gay man explains, it wasn't always easy, but he's now with his partner (and pooch) and after working on Ellen and The Talk, he has started his own online talk show, A Spoonful of Paolo.

Presta created his own online talk show, A Spoonful of Paolo, so he could be himself. Since he started, he's interviewed Florence Henderson, Linda Carter, and others. Watch a clip where he interviewed Tabatha Coffey below:
