5919: Oprah! Oprah! Oprah!
An Oprah-filled MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Oprah officially announced she won’t invite Sarah Palin to be a guest on her iconic TV show until after the election. A statement read, “There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.” Wonder if Ellen DeGeneres will be dancing with Palin anytime soon.
• Marion Jones was released from federal prison, after serving a six-month sentence for lying to federal agents investigating doping charges. Now she has to complete 800 hours of community service. Wonder if Jones will appear on Oprah’s show anytime soon.
• Hip hop artist Ludacris is embracing his real name for film roles. “[Acting] is a different business, and I do want to be taken seriously, so it’s back to being Chris Bridges,” explained Chris Bridges. Funny, most Hollywood actors change their real names to something flashier, yet hip hop artists feel the need to go the opposite direction. Also, definitely don’t expect Ludaris/Chris Bridges to appear on Oprah’s show anytime soon.
