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.

Pick me, pick me! I'll take the cruise and I'll pack an extra suitcase of Spam just in case I need to help any hungry people at sea.

It's good to know that some people understand that giving to the church is another way to give to those in need. We don't need a government Santa Claus. When I was growing up, if you were in need of help, you went first to your family. If they could not provide enough help, you went to your church. There was no such thing as government hand outs. Because of this, we got outselves into a lot less trouble. If you got yourself pregnant out of wedlock, it was usually a one-time event. You didn't have one every day.

Oprah takes so much credit for all of these give-a-ways, when in fact she never lays out one penny. All of the cars, trips, goods - etc. etc. are donated as the supplier gets tremendous exposure including Qantas, Chevy, Volkswagon and the list goes on. Ellen does the same, but Ellen has a humbleness about her, and it is my bet Ellen's heart is far more genuine and geared to giving than Oprah's. I get so tired of hearing about Oprah being the top dog, when it is her producers and all of her assistants that bring her show together. Yes, of course she has a lot of input, but c'mon people, wake up and smell the roses!

Ha! Oprah does believe she is a fat black woman who has made a lot of money - and she also has said she beleives she inhabits the same space as God ... yes she did! Arrogance and ignorance at its best.

Just goes to show you how materialistic people really are. All that money could be donated to worthy causes throughout the world. One should not be rewarded for the great deeds done. The true reward of an unselfish deed is the feeling one gets from seeing a smile on the other persons face.
