On The Oprah Effect, CNBC takes a look at how queen bee, Oprah Winfrey has the magical power to completely transform the business world with her talk show. Watch as companies fight to get on the show, and how, even a brief mention by Oprah can turn entrepreneurs into millionaires!

Julia celebrates her 35th birthday and starts to freak about her ticking biological clock; the single (and twice divorced) Kellie wants to start a matchmaking business; and Shea informs her boyfriend that she and her dad have picked some possible wedding dates… problem is, he hasn’t even asked her to marry him yet!!
