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.

Oprah looooves to give advice to her interviewees as if she's God and knows every answer in the world. I especially love that she's done a million "how to lose weight and really keep it off" shows yet she's still a fat pig. Hypocrite. She needs to be stopped.

I'm reading through this stuff and most of it is racist whether you know it or not, but the funniest one is by notjustanothername stating Oprah was trying to look white...when was this? She's a Black woman, with her natural hair color, and appropraite make up. What are you talking about? Maybe you have issues with your eyes. Or you are just a racist ass pig. Sorry I had to go there. Most people are jealous of her wealth so they vent by saying stupid things.

I am Catholic and it is not longer considered a sin to commit suicide. We no longer believe you will go to hell for this. It is believe that if you commit suicide you have depression and thats a deisese.
