Oprah to ABC: It's Not You, It's Me

11/8/2008 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

OprahLady Oprah has finally grown past the relationship she has with ABC, and now may be ready to do her own thing.

Reports have surfaced saying Oprah will be joining forces with Discovery Communications to form the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) which promises a brand new potpourri of fuzzy, cuddly, safe for everyone programming that tests high in both heart-warming and heart-wrenching categories.

David Zaslav, Discovery's president and CEO says, "The expectation is that after [the 2010-11 season] her show will go into syndication, and she will come to OWN."

Harpo Productions responded saying, "While David Zaslav's comments are true that Oprah's current contract to produce 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' will expire in 2011, she has not made a final decision as to whether she will continue her show in syndication beyond that."

Most of the comments are resoundingly negative, and I've no doubt that Okrah and her minions will just totally dis them. She has chosen the Messiah, so how could she be wrong? How could she possibly be passe? It's fashionable right now to have a black person in the White House. This period will pass into history, as will she. And 20 years from now, after we have rebuilt our nation once again, our sons and daughters will be the wiser, and take due caution, learning from the disaster the next 4 years will be.

Liz__________You have avoided responding to your bigot comment. " or be like a cool white kid & make hateful comments"_I have asked " why could it not be a "cool black" kid who makes hateful comments."? You were quick to respond to my post with comments that suited yourself_________ but your failure to address this cquestion in my post, is an indictment of your bias, bigotry & racism. "Black" got your tongue ??
