Can you believe tomorrow’s the LAST Oprah episode EVER?
What will the world be like without The Oprah Winfrey Show? Will the Earth still turn? Will the American Idol finale go on tomorrow NIGHT? SCOTTY OR LAUREN (give it to me!)? Will 4pm ever be the same?
Mind you, the earth did still turn when we lost Donahue and Sally Jesse Raphael…. Plus, Oprah’s still got her OWN network…. Which I’m totally “meh” about. You?
Not that I watch Oprah anymore. But there’s something comforting about just knowing it’s there — everyday at 4pm. I guess it’s also comforting knowing I won’t ever turn on the TV at 4pm again to hear another Oprah Show horror story. OMG, there were some horror stories on that show that I still think about…. I used to flip FAST past it just to see if they were talking about weight loss, doing a celeb interview or GASP sharing all the gory details of a horrific tragic event. ANYWAY! It’s over.
And the last show’s tomorrow (Wednesday).
And who’s going to be on the show? According to OK! Magazine, NO ONE will be on the show. It’ll be one hour of just Oprah.
Someone who sat in the audience at the final taping in Chicago spilled the beans to OK!. Apparently, Oprah’s going to talk about “her life lessons and [revisit] clips from her quarter-century on the air as The Oprah Winfrey Show host,” and she brings nary a celebrity to the stage. Instead, celebs like Maria Shriver, Suze Orman, Tyler Perry, Bob Greene, Gayle King and boyfriend Stedman Graham sit in the audience, along with Oprah’s influential fourth-grade teacher, Mary Duncan.
“This is my love letter to you,” Oprah said to the audience. And, adds OK!‘s source, her “eyes moistened with tears at times during the taping.”
So, will you be watching THE LAST OPRAH WINFREY SHOW? I don’t think I will, actually. I’m kind of let down because I heard Will Smith was going to be on the show….
