Despite her vow that she was going to stay behind-the-scenes running her network, you just kinda knew that anyone with an ego like hers wasn't going to be satisifed being behind the camera for long.. And now that her BFF (Or common-in-law wife It's still not clear) Gayle King has left Oprah's network to join CBS' The Early Show, that meant that a time slot was vacant to be filled.

Despite her vow that she was going to stay behind-the-scenes running her network, you just kinda knew that anyone with an ego like hers wasn't going to be satisifed being behind the camera for long.. And now that her BFF (Or common-in-law wife It's still not clear) Gayle King has left Oprah's network to join CBS' The Early Show, that meant that a time slot was vacant to be filled.

So, starting in January, OWN will premiere "Oprah's Next Chapter" in which, from the description of the show, sounds like she will travel around the world interviewing rich and famous celebrities to show off how wonderful and extraordinary they are while you're nothing. 

In the two hour opening episode, Oprah will travel to the New Hampshire estate of Aerosmith lead singer and Amercian idol judge Steve Tyler; and in following epiosdes, will visit Paula Deen, the obnoxious so-called chef who makes the unhealthist meals on the planet, Sean Penn in Haiti and his humanitarian work there, George Lucas at the Skywalker Ranch, and televangeist Joel Osteen.

In a statement about the new show, Oprah said: "After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever -- moving around the country and the world talking to people I'm really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too." 

Hey O, I wouldn't exactly bet on that.
