Oprah will finally appear on 'Letterman'

92925__oprah_lThat shrieking and joyful sobbing you hear in the distance is probably just the aftershocks of yesterday’s Oprah’s Favorite Things episode, during which UGG boots, Ralph Lauren sweaters (natch), and ”Philip! Stein! Teslar! Diamond! Watches!” were distributed to near-rapturous audience members. (I ought to mention these folks were deserving, too, since all of ‘em were Hurricane Katrina relief workers). The whole scene played out like an SNL parody, minus the exploding heads and makeout sessions between soccer moms.

That said, Oprah’s generosity yesterday extended beyond doling out ”Burrrr-berry coats!”, as she also granted late night host David Letterman’s wish by agreeing to appear on his Dec. 1 show; it’s something he’s been publicly begging for since Oprah told Time magazine in 2003 that she wouldn’t sit down with Letterman again because she didn’t like being ”the butt of his jokes.” Not to worry, though, Oprah’s getting something out of the arrangement too; the Broadway version of The Color Purple that she’s producing has its red-carpet premiere the same night as her Letterman appearance. I don’t know about you, but this has me more excited than "oatmeal cookie dough from Fox and Obel Maaaarket!"

    Yaaaawn …..

    Oh yes, we think Letterman will eat Leno’s lunch in 2006.

  • Sally

    Cannot stand this woman. Self-involved, egotistical, pretentious… and those are her positive qualities.

  • Mary

    What a hypocrite – suddenly she can go on his show when it is to her financial (as if she needs the money) benefit. Sheesh.

  • Joe

    Mary and Sally, you two(?) sound a wee bit jealous. What has Oprah done to you?

  • Sha’ Vega

    I don’t know what Oprah has done to Mary and Sally, but personally, Oprah has insulted my intelligence with her inane questions to Julia Roberts a few years ago about how her boobs were made to appear “so big” in “Erin Brokovich” (sp?) over and over again, while the real Erin was there to be interviewed as well. It was the perfect opportunity for Oprah to ask this real-life hero about her work and she blew it! And kept on commenting on Julia’s boobs!! That was the last time I watched her show and have vowed never to watch it again.

    Thanks for the link to the SNL parody. It’s my favorite SNL skit EVER!

  • Anthony Williams

    C’mon, people, the woman is human! She has the right to change her mind! And I don’t think a self-involved person goes to Africa donating not only her money but also her time. Lord knows she’s not perfect, none of us are. Without going too much further, I respect the woman.

    For all those of you who are cynical and view Ms. Winfrey as self absorbed and egotisitical …I challenge you..name her counterparts who have done anything equivocal to her accounts for their fellow man and then, and only then, will I nominate you for a Noble peace prize……………….
