Oprah Winfrey showed her gratitude and appreciation in a big way, as big as $65,000. We all know she is an angel with a big heart. Many people have better lives because of her. So, this time she offered as a bonus for overtime $65,000 to a hard-working stuff member, according to NYPost.

OPRAH Winfrey may employ lots of hard workers, but staffers at Harpo Inc. are grumbling that the star's production company allowed one well-connected assistant to rake in astounding, nearly impossible-to-accumulate overtime - worth a whopping $65,000 - in just 16 weeks.

According to one Harpo employee, Carla Bird, the girl Friday to Oprah's TV co-executive producer Lisa Erspamer, filed for 800 hours of overtime from January through April of this year.

"Many of our employees contribute significant hours of overtime during our production season. This is quite common within the television industry," she told Page Six.

"From January to April 2007, this employee legitimately accumulated approximately 800 hours of overtime."
