After Oprah’s big announcement to leave daytime television after 25 seasons, some of her close friends and celebrities commented on The Oprah Winfrey Show’s September 2011 split from TV.
Her bestie Gayle King said:
“I think that Oprah always makes the best decision for herself. I really do. And I have a feeling she will come up with some things to do. She has a very full life…We don’t need to worry about her filling her time, I promise you that! Life is good for her.”
Ellen DeGeneres commented:
“Hey listen, I’m going to tell you some news you’re going to hear as soon as you go out into the world, when you leave here. Right before I came out here, I got a call from Oprah and she told me that she is announcing that next year will be her last year. It will be her 25th year, and she feels like it’s time for her to stop…I don’t think I could be here without her. I think she has blazed a trail…She is an amazing woman…She will always be the Queen of Daytime Television.”
And finally Martha Stewart noted:
“She’ll do another show. She’s evolving. She’s fabulous.”
Yeah, I think she is definitely going to have another show…this time on her OWN network, but what will it be??
