Oprah Whips Out Giant Stage for Final Shows

5/17/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

More than 20,000 Oprah Winfrey fans are getting their first look at O's massive pimped out stage as they file into Chicago's United Center for the taping tonight of some of her last few shows.

The arena -- usually home to the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks -- is packed to the rafters ... according to our spies.

Oprah's A-list friends -- Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Madonna -- are all expected to hit the enormous two-part stage ... during a taping that could take up to four hours. 

Even Maria Shriver is in Chi-town for the show. Wonder what she has to talk about?

"Oprah Whips Out Her Giant Stage"

I guess Oprah's stage can't lose weight either. They're both a couple of fat a$$es.

I hope Maria Shriver doesn't spend the whole time talking about Arnold's cheating. That would only humiliate the family more!

Is this really a Scientology rally with Cruise and Travolta? Where's Kristey Alley?

Jeez Oprah - I've heard of the long good-bye but this is ridiculous. Especially since OWN isn't doing so well and doesn't even have a NEWS division.

Ah hear tell Oprah will offer Maria her own show.
More intriguing is speculation that Oprah will come out. But probably not, because two scientology stars who happen to be in the closet will be her guests. And she wouldn't want to embarrass them, now would she?

All I can say is.....thank God the Oprah show is over! I used to enjoy the show until it started getting to materialistic. Yes, she did good works but they were too public which made be believe it was only for show.

i am sick to death of seeing all these 'stars' paying tribute to oprah like she is the 2nd coming of christ
jesus!!! and she eats up up with a massive spoon to feed that huge ego of hers.
this is and always will be about how rich this woman is.

Interesting that Madonna's pie face will be on the show. . . .I'll never forget her ultra diss of Oprah in the Truth or Dare film--something about not liking Chicago because the men were all ugly and Oprah lived there. . . .but I guess cause Oprah has since proven herself to be the Queen of Entertainment she kinda has to be there. . . .
