Oprah is going to have her last show today, and there’s supposed to be a big announcement – it’s probably about her plans for the future. She’s already said something about closing down The Oprah Winfrey Show but she held back, saying that the announcement will be made during the last airing. Hold on to your seats tonight, ladies and gentlemen! Oh, and bring lots of tissue – I have a feeling you’re gonna need it.
“Going Rogue: An American Life,” is the title of Sarah Palin’s memoir, which is due to be released on November 17. A day before that, however, she is going to sit down with the talkshow queen, Oprah Winfrey. This should be a very interesting rendezvous to say the least!
The Queen of talk shows is being sued by Corrine Gehrls, a flight attendant in a private jet that Oprah used to take. The story is that Gerhls was accused of having sex with the pilot while Oprah and her bunch were fast asleep. Gehrls and the pilot passed a polygraph test, but they were still fired from their posts. Gehrls is now seeking over $75,000 in damages. Oprah has not said a word about the suit.
No one has heard of Mackenzie Phillips and her brood for a long time but suddenly, she’s back in the limelight. She released a memoir this week, where she claims that she had an incestuous relationship with late dad, John Phillips. Those from the older generation would associate that name with the group The Mamas & The Papas. Mackenzie’s stepmoms all deny her claims, while her sister Chynna thinks it’s true. To her credit, Mackenzie has caught Oprah’s attention.
Oprah’s show is normally shot in Chicago but this Friday, the crew is going to Central Park. Viewers will be treated to various guests including Mariah Carey, who is scheduled to sing a single from her new album “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.” I wonder why the queen of talk shows suddenly had the urge to go to the park?
