Oprah Gift Getter to Re-Oprah Some of Her Gifts

11/23/2010 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned one of the "Oprah" audience members who just won a brand new car -- and a bunch of other awesome stuff -- is stealing a move from O's playbook ... and plans to give away some of the goodies to other people who "deserve it."

We spoke to Nikki Ivey -- who walked away from "Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things" episode with everything from cookware, to jewelery to music and of course a brand new Volkswagon Beetle -- but she told us she isn't keeping everything.

Ivey says she plans to give away some of the items to deserving people -- a la Oprah -- and plans to sell some of the stuff off to raise money for her church. 

However, there's one item she ain't so eager to part with. Ivey says she had been praying for a car ever since her truck hit the 200,000 mile mark ... so she's gonna hang on to the Beetle.

But Ivey says ... because her prayers had been answered, she felt it would be "right" to sell off some of the gifts so she could donate to her church.

Ivey says she'll be figuring out who gets what sometime in the next few weeks.

Never liked Oprah. She is so false. I don't believe there is much about her to like enough to copy.

It's sad when people like #6/"me" have to always make a negative out of a positive. Stop making yourself so miserable.

I don't disagree with what this woman is doing although The Bible generally considers pride (boasting) to be bad. So much for being humble.

I'd be more impressed with Oprah if she'd take some of those billions and feed and clothe the poor children in the country.

She should consider how much more happy she could make poor children and families who can't afford to enjoy thanksgiving or a good christmas.

She shouldn't be bragging on national television about how much she gives away..with too much ego..and not enough sincere concern and love.

I'm not impressed..

I'm pretty sure that "god" doesn't answer the prayers of the middle class by giving them more 'consumer' items. I would guess he'd be busy with starving people and abused children in war torn countries. How arrogant that Americans think that God would cater to their selfish desires for material items. If these people actually read the bible, they'd realize their lifestyle is in direct opposition to what Jesus preached about. He was against organized religion, against material items and riches. Sadly Oprah has lost all credibility - imagine how many villages in third world countries the money could have helped.

Its funny how Oprah has such a strong stand on no cell phone use behind the wheel. If we all had a chauffeur to drive us around, I'm sure we would all be against the idea as well.

I figured the audience was probably screened thoroughly to try to prevent this from happening. The woman will have to disclose the amount (taxes) because of the $$ amount. Opraah gave away ALOT of really expensive things!! I'd like to know how much each person walked away with.

I stopped liking Oprah when she so publicly and intentionally and viciously shamed the million little pieces guy. But hey, she's worked damn hard to become so successful. It's her money, she can do what she wants with it. Who are we to say she should do this and shouldn't do that.

I used to like Oprah. Now, I see her as pious and arrogant.
Oprah is always talking about her faith and being a Christian but she must be reading a different bible than many. Oprah always implies she has special favor by God, based on how God has "blessed" her with so much money. God does not condone living with a man, nor the tremendous excess in Oprah's life.
Has God blessed the drug zhars that make billions? and all the other crooks in the limelight as well? God "allows" this to happen and we will all know His reasons and purpose one day.

I keep hearing how hard Oprah has worked! Did you know that when she was only 18 the doors opened wide for her as she worked as a newsreader on a local radio - then in her early 20's, and this was in the 70's she was getting $25,000 a year - a fortune back then!!! No, not hard work - then - as she was capitalised on by a white producer, the rest is history as she has a huge staff and consultants guidng and directing her. OPRAH WINFREY HAS NEVER BEEN A ONE WOMAN SHOW. WE ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE PEOPLE AROUND US.
