The 37-year-old was seen swiftly placing her Chanel bag over her stomach as she exited her car.

And while she was quietly enjoying her semi-retirement, sources tell New Idea that the explosive interview has inspired Oprah, 67, to pursue more work – and she’s hoping her next project will include Britney Spears!
