One of the things we'll miss about The Oprah Winfrey Show are the moments when everyday people come to the studio just miserable and depleted, but then walk away with a buttload of awesome free shit that only Oprah could afford to bestow upon dozens upon dozens of strangers.
Today marks the beginning of the end of Oprah's iconic show and with no surprise to us, she decided to go out with the shrill screams of hundreds of housewives.
According to sources, Oprah surprised her guests, all 300 of them, with an all expenses paid trip to Australia!
As you can imagine, the women lost their shit!
She made the announcement shortly after she was joined on stage with her guests Don Johnson, Paul Simon and Joooohn Travoltaaaaa! (Did we mention? He's going to fly the plane!!!)

Guess the judge must have been a Nash Bridges fan.
Don Johnson brought Rysher entertainment and two other firms associated with the show to court, seeking profits that were withheld from him. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that Johnson is owed over $28 million in interest.
A Jury had previously ruled that Johnson is entitled to $23.2 million in profits withheld from him by the Nash Bridges crew, based on the fact that he owns half the copyright to the series.
In total, Don Johnson has over $51 million coming to him from Nash Bridges, and he’s entitled to half the future earnings from syndication of the show. Bravo!
Do U think Don Johnson deserves all the money he was awarded?

Good for him!
A jury has awarded actor Don Johnson $23.2 million in profits after he filed a lawsuit claiming he owned 50 percent of the copyright to the show Nash Bridges.
Producers from Rysher Entertainment said it had lost money and that's why he wasn't paid, but the jury agreed with Don. He says:
"It was my idea and I owned the rights in the first place. I have waited for more than 10 years for Rysher to recognize me as the co-owner of the Nash Bridges series. From the beginning, I have asked only that Rysher honor our contract and I am so pleased that the jury agreed with me."
Rysher's lawyer says that they plan to appeal.
But Johnson could even make another $25 million since Nash Bridges is still shown in 45 countries!
