American television mogul Oprah Winfrey is known for having a big heart. During decades of hosting her self-titled talk show, Oprah made hundreds of people happy by giving away prizes, cash and cars. If you thought her generosity would shrink now that she owns her own television network, think again. Her latest act of good will? Feeding a homeless man a gourmet meal.
Oprah (in the picture with Paula Deen) noticed the homeless man while she was dining outdoors at Scarpetta, a fine dining Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills where a plain tomato sauce spaghetti goes for $24. According to the New York Post, the homeless man (identified as Eddie) asked Oprah for a bowl of soup. Oprah, who was dining with OWN network executives, went above and beyond. She asked her staff to order the man a feast and also give him cash.
Here at Fine Dining Lovers we are wowed by Oprah's good will. It's great to see celebrities being truly generous even in their private lives.
