Move over Jennifer and Amy because we have a new favourite celebrity friendship; just in time for the holidays, too. In case you haven’t heard, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Canada’s very own Marilyn Denis are now besties, and we kind of love it.
Okay, so they’re not besties per se, but they are officially friends. After appearing on The Marilyn Denis Show a handful times over the past few years, Dr. Oz finally invited Denis to be a guest star on his show in New York. And that all went down Monday to kick off the last working week before Christmas.
So what do two old chums such as these discuss? Well, as Denis previews in the behind-the-scenes video above, she felt a little strange being on the other end of an interview. But for her it was a chance to finally open up about her weight loss journey and talk a little bit about positive body image. And really, we couldn’t think of a better interviewer than Doctor Oz for that sort of conversation.
Naturally, Denis being the type of host that she is also brought along her own camera crew to document her time in New York. As we can also see from the video above, that involved documenting a tour of the studio, a little foot race up some backstage stairs with the good doctor and an interview with one of the show’s prop people — you know, those people who figure out a way to make things like your colon a little more visually interesting.
It’s all preamble to the actual interview itself, of course, which aired in Canada at 2 p.m. on CTV Monday. If you missed it, or just want to see it again, check it out here and here, and here’s hoping Denis returns the favour and has Dr. Oz back in her Toronto studios again very soon.
