Oprah To Sit Down With Andy Cohen On ‘Watch What Happens Live’
Oprah Winfrey is like the queen of snatching up exclusive interviews and now, it looks like she’s paying it forward! According to Us Weekly, the media maven will be giving Bravo personality and executive VP of development, Andy Cohen the opportunity to ask her some hard-hitting questions during an upcoming episode of Watch What Happens Live.
The 59-year-old trailblazer will be appearing on the August 15th episode, during which she will also be discussing her role in upcoming film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler. This interview is considered a huge deal, as Andy is known for asking the tough questions that other folks are too scared to ask. And since Oprah rarely grants interviews, there’s no telling what may come out during her appearance. Ironically, just last year Andy offered the media mogul advice on how she could salvage the OWN network after it received extremely poor ratings.
“Here’s the first thing that I would do and it’s the first thing I would have done two years ago: put on re-reruns of the freaking ‘Oprah Winfrey Show.’ They are sitting on a 25-year archive of The Oprah Winfrey Show. You have all this time to fill? Guess what I want to watch? The greatest talk show in the history of talk shows. ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show,'” Andy said during a Howard Stern interview.
“First of all, I don’t want to watch a show that has class in the title,” he added. “I don’t want to go to school. … I just want to see the old ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ I know they probably have rights issues … [but] it’s the greatest show,” he continued.
In other Lady O news, we hear that on August 1st she will be stopping by the David Letterman Show for the first time since her initial appearance 8 years ago.
