Woman's Reaction to Meeting Oprah At The 2020 Vision Tour Goes Viral

What would you do if you met Oprah? Now, imagine if that special moment happened in-front of thousands of people? And did we mention that it would be recorded on a video that would eventually go viral?

Though it may seem like a dream, that exact situation is very real for 56-year-old Dimetria Regan. The retired corrections officer attended the first leg of Lady O's 2020 Vision Tour. The inaugural stop took place on January 4 in Ft. Lauderdale.

During Saturday's festivities as she was sitting in the audience of the BB&T Center arena, Oprah ventured into the crowd and Regan was lucky enough to have the O of O come up to her and offer the microphone for a chance to speak. But all the New York native could do was sit back and stare at the mogul with an open mouth. As mentioned before, the incredibly relatable (and delightful) moment was captured in a quick clip, which you can catch below.

"I knew I was going to do this, " Regan says. "Lord Jesus, help me. I love you!"

Now, reflecting back on that moment, she tells OprahMag.com, "I couldn't even see her face. I blacked out, I ain't gonna lie."

Oprah shared the video on her Instagram story, and it has since made its rounds on the internet. Since Regan doesn't have an account herself, her daughter had to show it to her. She says she eventually spotted it on the Instagram account for The Shade Room, but would like to address the fact that people said she was "star struck."

"I see her as an icon, yes, but it's deeper than that," she explained. "The woman that I admire the most—the person that I admire the most—after all these years I finally got a chance to meet her. It's not about stardom or how big she is or how much money she has. That to me really doesn't mean anything. It's how she helps people. That's the most important thing to me."

Regan explained that she's been an Oprah fan since watching the premiere episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show back in 1986. She even attended the billionaire's first tour in 2003, Live Your Best Life. So if she hadn't had been as...surprised as she was on Saturday, she knew exactly what she'd have said.
