Oprah Says Thanks, Y'all, For the "Food Coma'" and the State Fair Memories

After holding court around the fairgrounds on Sunday, Oprah turned out for her show's taping this morning in her Stetson, boots and blue jeans, dropping "y'all's" and oozing countrified charm for hundreds of devoted fans.

The crowd filled the area before the Chevrolet Main Stage at the State Fair of Texas out onto the Midway, to hear Oprah spin a few yarns about her weekend at the fair, announce the winner of her baking contest, and catch a performance from Martina McBride.

Joined onstage by O editor Gayle King and design maven Nate Berkus, Oprah recalled her weekend of junk food -- including a story about the "corn doggies" that roused her back awake at 4 a.m., thanks. "Gayle and I have eaten our way through the State Fair," she said. "I think I'm in a food coma."

We've got more photos from the taping here in our slide show.
