Hark! Children, close your eyes and open your ears! Can you hear the distant shuddering sobs and screams?
What is that sound you ask? Why, it’s the sound of the stay-at-home moms who just found out that Oprah Winfrey is bringing her daytime show to an end in September of 2011.
After 25 years of seeing her weight gains and losses, the tears and the laughter, the fanatic audience members who scream, cry, clap, and do back flips while screaming, crying, and clapping, we’ll be left with only fond memories. No more book club, no more favorite things (Ooh, listen! The husbands are bawling in harmony with their wives!), no more Tuesdays with Dr. Oz. But these memories which will soon be replaced with new ones, because come on, it’s Oprah – she isn’t going anywhere. She’s even debuting her own channel: OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network) that will premiere in 2010. So dry those eyes, sit tight, maybe watch some Ellen in the meantime. The queen of daytime TV probably will be back in some way, shape, or form.Perez Hilton
