Oprah Fascinated By Murder-for-Hire Story

6/4/2010 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Oprah Winfrey is trying to snag former Food Network host Juan-Carlos Cruz for a jail chit chat.

Oprah Winfrey and Juan-Carlos Cruz

Cruz is currently behind bars after being arrested for allegedly hiring three homeless guys to kill his wife.  TMZ broke the story ... Cruz's wife -- Jennifer Campbell -- was suicidal because the couple was infertile but could not take her life because it's a mortal sin in the Catholic Church. We're told even the cops and prosecutors believe Cruz may have hired the homeless guys as an act of mercy, that would be followed by Cruz taking his own life.

The story certainly got Oprah's attention.  We're told Oprah's peeps reached out to Cruz's reps for an interview. 

We're told Cruz hasn't responded ... so far.

WHATEVER    

As if murder and suicide are NOT also considered bad by the Catholic church ? Anyone believing his story is as insane as he is. "Cops and prosecutors believe", ???? THEY DO ? THEY BELIEVE HIS STORY ?

All he said was he needed more dill for his wife. Not kill his wife. He's a cook. Or is he a chef?

Hey Oprah, I have a fascinating story for you: Why don't you quit trying to look "white", as you have for all these years, and just be proud of your heritage?? LMAO
