A 15-year veteran of the Oprah show, Salata has gone from the control room to star of Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes on the OWN network. Salata told the L.A. Times recently that being Oprah's right-hand woman is the equivalent of winning the lottery. "[She] is my greatest teacher. I am a different human being for having worked with her," says Salata, whose afternoon meetings with the mogul also came with Oprah-packed GladWare lunches. "You don't see that every day from world icons."
