Oprah Winfrey To Bid Talk Show Adieu

November 20th, 2009 // 4 Comments

Over the past 25 years, Oprah Winfrey has wormed her way into the living rooms and hearts of American housewives across the country. She has spoken frankly about her issues with weight, interviewed countless celebrities, all the while modeling various amazing hairstyles that have enthralled and entertained.

Winfrey announced on the episode of her talk show set to air today, “After much prayer and careful thought, I decided that next season, season 25 will be the last season.”

While the 55-year-old talk show host will be retiring her long-running daytime series, she’ll still be toiling in the television industry. Oprah plans to shift her focus to launching her cable channel, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, in collaboration with Discovery.

Tears streaming down her cheeks, Oprah thanked her audience and said, “I love this show. … This show has been my life and I love it enough to know when it’s time to say goodbye.” Do you know why she was crying? Because that gun Tyra Banks was pressing into her back was pointy.

    Dear Oprah, I am at school today for my art class at U.C.S.D. The first picture of you I did not do very well, so I am going to paint the one that I see. Esther Gift/Unknown Artist. I did not hear from you when I sent you a novelette that I wrote, so I will attempt to re-write, “Missus GOD’s Heaven” or “Wordless.” The time now is 1:55 pm, so I have a couple of hours to go before class begins. I have a Mexican teacher. He is really a good one. Guess I will go and eat with Harry Krisner. They come out and feed us on campus for about five dollars. The food is really good. Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to read me. A friend and one of your favorite fans. I also sent one to Tyler Perry, to no avail. Guess he is too chauvinistic. 3-5-2014 1:57 pm
