Part motivational speaker and part financial planner, Suze Orman tells it like it is. So it's no surprise that Oprah was drawn to the personal finance guru and her famous "Suze smackdowns."
Oprah first had Orman on the show after her 1997 book The Nine Steps to Financial Freedom became a bestseller. She's been a regular ever since, offering Oprah viewers advice on how to save, spend, and pay down debt.
But the relationship doesn't stop there. Orman has also been a regular columnist for O, the Oprah Magazine, and she plugs her books through special deals on Oprah.com. Orman also hosts her own show on CNBC.
When asked once what financial advice she had for Oprah, Orman responded as any Oprah disciple should: "Don't spend it all in one place - unless she wants to, of course."
