Twitter is notorious for uncovering hilarious celebrity doppelgängers. The latest discovery? A Detroit-based model, Cheyenne Laneé, whose striking resemblance to talk show billionaire Oprah Winfrey has the Internet seriously shook.

 

Laneé came to light after she shared a pair of sizzling promotional shots for her upcoming podcast, Views From the Thick. Alongside tons of likes, she earned the nickname “Oprah Thickfrey.

The young woman’s rise to cyberstardom was launched by onlooker @YourFavoriteZoe, whose theory gave the Laneé a second identity.

Playing coy at first, she denied seeing any similarities between herself and the TV star: “At first, I was like, ‘Omg! What are you all looking at?'” Laneé said in an interview with Buzzfeed.

“However, the more I analyzed the picture, the more I started to see the resemblance,” she added. “I believe it’s my eyes and my cheekbones, honestly.”

 

Laneé has decided to own it, calling herself “Motor City Oprah” online, paying homage to her home city while squashing any stripper speculation.
