Maria Shriver In Talks To Join Oprah's Network!

Maria Shriver

Oprah Winfrey is our HERO!

Although OWN may have recently suffered a blow with the cancellation of Rosie O'donnell's show, Oprah is pulling out all the stops to make sure her network becomes a success.

The HBIC Oprah has enlisted the help of her long time homie Maria Shriver in hopes of luring her over to the network!

According to sources, Oprah feels that many of her readers will relate to the drama in her life Maria Shriver, ultimately resulting in a ratings BOOST.

The source says:

"[Oprah] has been in discussions with Maria for a very long time about doing a news/special interest driven show for OWN. However, Oprah has ramped up the pressure in the past several weeks. It's highly unlikely Maria would get her own show though, she doesn't want that amount of responsibility, period. Oprah has told Maria that she could do specials for the network with an emphasis on the human interest issues that she is passionate about. Oprah admires and respects Maria so much, and she thinks her viewers can relate to her."

And we couldnt agree more!!

We LOVE Maria and how she's managed to keep her composure, ESPECIALLY after all the recent Arnie dramz.

Maria got by with a little help from friends like BFF Oprah, so we're hoping that Maria pays Oprah in kind and says YES to OWN!!!

Thoughts??!!!

    Oh come on Oprah. Try some new blood.



  2. 2

    This is NOT going to help er network.



  3. 3

    Pfft. Now that's a winning combo… lol. She's a little scary looking.

    If Rosie, who has had previous success with her own talk show before, can not make it on the OWN net work. Then there is no chance in the at all fro Maria to have any suceess. No one cares about Maria and she is not a proven talent. The only thing that will actually bring veiwers to that network might be if Oprah would start her own daily talk show.

    She could do a piece on how to have a successful marriage of convenience, and then how to come out smelling like roses when something scandalous becomes public knowledge. It would be 'must-see' tv for all politician's wives.

    Oh, great, another old lady that no one cares about (like Rosie). Oprah needs to get someone younger. Surely, there's some young female journalist that would be good hosting a show. Shriver is just too damn old. She was popular back in the day, but who cares now. She needs like a Rachel Ray kind of personality. Someone a bit younger with some spunk and excitement.

    As what, Skeletor?

    Skeletor…I will rule the world!

    Out of the frying pan into the fire
    Who wants to see that skinny bitch, and who cares what she has to say
    If Oprah was smart, she would get our boy Perez to host a chat show, he could do film, fashion and the usual gossip

    Poor Oprah, I think she's made her Cash and she needs to move on to something else.
    The positive thing is she does good work with her money, unlike most of hollywood.
    I'm not a fan of the huge estates, mega expensive cars, purses, furs, planes, vacation homes and islands, while children are going to school hungry. Support music programs for schools, breakfast/lunch clubs for schools. Computers for classrooms. Sports Stars visits to classes would go a long way to a child without a father. Someone needs to shake these rich people!

    Looks like they let the nags out.
    There she is, a good little Catholic Kennedy girl.

    So Maria. Any problems with Obama's war on the Catholic church?
    -
    Didn't think so.
    Commie 1st and Catholic 3rd or 4th.

    Happy Easter.

    A SIGN THAT THERE’S A DEMOCRAT IN THE WHITE HOUSE:

    She's not that good, she has no following, and shes really looking scarey these days.
