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!!!
