Leaving Tom Cruise with no couch to jump on, save those of shirtless sailors and dollhouses, Oprah Winfrey announced today she’ll be ending her talk show after 25 years on the air. Via People:
“After much prayer and careful thought, I decided that next season, season 25 will be the last season,” Winfrey told audience members. “I love this show. … This show has been my life and I love it enough to know when it’s time to say goodbye.”
Winfrey, 55, thanked her viewers for their support over the years. “These years with you, our viewers, have enriched my life beyond all measure,” she said. “We’ve grown together. You’ve raised your families, had your children. And left a spot for me in the mornings or the afternoons. … I want you all to know my relationship with you is one that I hold very dear.”
The Superficial would like to offer its sincere condolences to anyone whose sole plan to own a car included being in Oprah’s audience. However, I heard she chucks them out the window at squirrels getting into her garden, so if you can manage to cross the moat and dodge the machine gun turrets, there’s still hope.
