Oprah Gets Her OWN Network

Apparently, Oprah hasn't taken over enough of the world, so she's now acquired her own television network. Ms. O, who has the biggest talk show in the universe, her own magazine, a satellite radio channel, a show on Broadway, and owns part of Dr. Phil and Rachael Ray's television shows, has just announced that she will continue to conquer the media. Ops will be taking over the Discovery Health channel and be renaming it OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. And I thought I was busy. Oprah will serve as chairwoman of OWN and have full editorial control over its programming. "For me, the launch of the Oprah Winfrey Network is the evolution of the work I've been doing on television all these years and a natural extension of my show," she said in a statement. I'm curious to see if Oprah's BFF, Gayle King, will be starring in her own show. That lady has it good, no? I mean, I'm not hating on her -- I would totally employ all of my best friends if I was rolling in money and had the opportunity to do so. I was just saying.
