Oprah Winfrey offered the host and comedian the chance to share her cover spot on the popular magazine.
Wired PR News – Oprah Winfrey has offered to share her normally solo spot on the cover of her popular publication, O Magazine, with fellow daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Winfrey, who shared the spot for the first time in the magazine’s nine year history with First Lady Michelle Obama, shocked DeGeneres with the offer in a surprise video phone call featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Friday.
DeGeneres, who has reportedly been crusading for the cover on her own talk show “Ellen,” is quoted in the AP report as remarking to Winfrey, “I can’t believe you’re serious about this. I’m freaking out right now.”
DeGeneres has accepted the offer as further noted in the report.
