Oprah Winfey's All-Time Favorite Guest Is…

Filed under: TV NewsInspirationOprah Winfrey

Not a celebrity or a politician or a person who found real fame and fortune after meeting the famed talk show host. Oprah Winfrey's all-time favorite guest is a woman, not an average one by any means, but one who, as Oprah puts it "encapsulates the essence of every lesson we’ve shared over the past 25 years."

On Friday's show, the last Friday show ever for Oprah, she revealed that her favorite guest of all time was Dr. Tererai Trent. A Zimbabwean woman who was denied an education all her life, was married at 11, had three children by 18, and whose husband beat her every day. It was her dream to leave her life behind, move to America for an education and earn a PhD. By the time she first appeared on Oprah two years ago, she had accomplished all those things.

As Dr. Trent and Big O regaled about their time together and Dr. Trent's harrowing life story, she revealed to O that her new dream is to build a school in her home of Zimbabwe, so other children could be privy to an education she wasn't. That's when Oprah had her look under her seat (proverbially) and announced she was donating $1.5 million to such a school built!

Trent cried. Oprah cried. The audience cried. The world cried. It was emotional. It was also the last time we'll all ever watch Oprah's show in its truest form. The finale is going to be epic in more ways that one, but this episode was what Oprah built her 25 years on. It was a nice way to go out.

Who Are Oprah's First Two Series Finale Guests?

Really?

The American public has been anxiously awaiting the announcement of whom the Big O will be hosting as her guests on the upcoming, much-anticipated series finale of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the first two have just been revealed to be…Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett!

The pair are pretty much known to be two of the talk show queen's favorite guests, so we're not too surprised that they'll be there to say good-bye on May 25th, but we were kind of anticipating a little more of a spectacle!

However, we have a feeling that gurlfriend has some tricks and surprises still up her sleeve, so we're not too concerned!

What do U think The Big O has planned for her last episode??

And The Nominees For The Daytime Emmys Are…

susan-lucci-nominated.jpg

You know, we just had a thought.

While looking over the nominees for this years Daytime Emmy awards, it occurred to us that this might be the last time they even have the Daytime Emmys! Think about it - most of the shows nominated have be CANCELED!

All My Children, One Life to Live, The Oprah Winfrey Show - all of them will be gone this time next year! Granted, there will still be a lot of competition in the talk show category, but if AMC is seeing its last days, how much longer will The Bold and The Beautiful last. Or The Young and the Restless. The time of daytime soaps maybe finally coming to close.

So, here's our point: if you are fan of daytime television, you should really enjoy the telecast this year and applaud the nominees. If things keep going the way they are, there won't be that much daytime T.V. to celebrate. Sad, but true.

Anyway, check out the full list of nominess this year after the jump. General Hospital took the lead with 21 Emmy nominations, followed closely by The Young and the Restless with 20. AMC and OLTL got 13 and 12 nods respectfully, but alas, Susan Lucci didn't get nominated this year.

Damn! Now she won't get to go out like a diva! Boo!

Thoughts on the nominations?
