A source tells Popeater.com that Oprah Winfrey will revive her show on her OWN network before the year is out.
Oprah ended her 25-year run on May 25th with an extravagant, overblown 3-day sendoff that would have made Jesus blush.
Before the final two episodes were even taped, Harpo Productions, Oprah's company, announced that Oprah's final guest would be "the biggest star in the world" -- prompting many in the media to try and guess who the biggest star could be since both Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor were dead.
As it turns out, Oprah was her own final guest, meaning she is the biggest star in the world. At least in her own mind, Oprah believed that no other star was big enough to share the stage with her.
And to drive the point home, Harpo photoshopped Opah's final photo (shown above) 5 shades lighter, giving her an otherworldly glow, not unlike that of an angel who is too perfect for this world.
"I won't say goodbye. I'll just say, Until we meet again," she tearfully told her audience, which was made up of people who had never been in her audience before.
"She is going to dedicate herself to her new network and do whatever needs to be done to make sure it's a huge hit," a co-worker of Oprah's told Popeater.com. "If this means bringing her own show back to life on her network then she will. I can't imagine that she won't be back on the air before the end of the year."
Phil Donahue was (and will always be) my favorite daytime TV host ever. He ended his long daytime television run with one respectfully understated episode.
It took Oprah three star-studded, over the top, overhyped shows to say goodbye - and she she won't even be gone that long. Like a drug addict, no narcissist can stay away from their steady source of supply.
