If you, like me, have been dying to know just what it’s like to relax casually with a mimosa in hand and chat with Oprah Winfrey for Sunday brunch, then you’ll be delighted to know that it’s actually just as pleasant and fun in real life as it is in your imagination. We finally got to see how Winfrey does brunch — and who she brunches with — when photos went up online from her Wisdom of Sundays Gospel Brunch at her home in Los Angeles.
Taking place outdoors in the sunny California air, the casual brunch setting drew a major crowd of celebrities, most notably actors Julia Roberts and Kerry Washington. Pictures show these celebs hobnobbing with others in attendance, and according to E! News, Roberts brought along her family, including 12-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and her 10-year-old son Henry, to enjoy the day’s activities.

Washington was spotted hanging out with Angela Bassett at one point during the brunch festivities. Other celebrities in attendance included Common, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, singer Andra Day (who also performed during the event) and Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham.
The Wisdom of Sundays Gospel Brunch was held at Winfrey’s home in Montecito, California, and it appears to be one of the first of its kind that the mogul has hosted. The event was planned to not only bring some of Winfrey’s closest friends together but also to promote her new book, Wisdom of Sundays, her latest book on the spiritual lessons she wants to pass on to her readers and fan base.
What’s evident is that Winfrey was in the fellowship spirit on Sunday (and how could you not be with friends like Roberts and Washington in attendance?) and that she was having the best time doing it.
