WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sarah Palin will sit down with Oprah Winfrey the day before her new memoir hits bookstores, Harpo announced Tuesday.

The former Alaska governor will make the appearance on Oprah on November 16 to talk about her highly anticipated tell-all, "Going Rogue: An American Life."

Palin has never before appeared on the popular daytime talk show. Last December, Winfrey said she had invited her on the show to discuss the election, but suggested at the time that Palin had instead chose other interviewers.

"I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over... I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn't talk to me," Oprah told the show Extra last year.

    Sarah, Please cancel this this interview. Oprah will only use it against you. You should not degrade yourself to Oprah's level on mentality.

    Sarah is very entertaining in the villain-sort of way. I wouldn't mind if she lands her own talk show on Fox News (probably because I don't watch Fox News).

    And here, scientists were worried about the Hadron Collider when what will really cause the universe to collapse in on itself is when Oprah and 'White Oprah' meet...

    "Everybody in the audience gets a free rape kit! Just kidding, you have to pay for it..."

    Time for the Palin haters to come out, oops, you are home watching Oprah as you voted for Obambi and don't work and the truth, facts and Fox news don't sit too well in your little worlds.

    The first one of you that has run a city, a state and a business, balanced a BUDGET at home or at work, can start hammering her, say, that would leave out Obama as well...

    Please send this to the Obambi rat squad, I look forward to Axelfraud and "The fish" contacting me, I love schooling fools that think they are smart.

    Today's media minus the number one source all say "All the news that's fit to omit".

    Oprah could do us all a favor by recinding her invitation. WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THIS NOBODY!

    You really expect us to believe this woman is intelligent enough to write a book?

    Can you say ghostwriter boys and girls? Sure, I knew you could!

    The train wreck continues. When will our society wake up and just walk away from Sarah.

  13. Reagan was wrong

    Intelligent women (Hillary Clinton, Katie Couric) are Sarah Palin's kryptonite. This will be an interesting interview, provided Sarah Palin doesn't cancel at the last minute.

    Oprah didn't want her billions of housewives to get to know Palin prior to the election because her boy Obama may lose votes to her.

    I hope Oprah gives Sarah Palin a chance to talk openly and be herself. I have noticed most people just poke at her and don't let her be herself. Oprah is usually fair minded.

    Now that Palin needs someone respectable to hawk her book, she's got the time for Oprah. Oprah is too smart not to see through the facade, unless it's a good time to remind and show the Country what a simple mind Palin really has.

    I've never watched Oprah. I guess I won't start anytime soon.

    Correction.......Will She show up? I bet NO unless she is hoping OPRAH will put her book in the Oprah Book club.

    I hope Katie Couric is a guest host the same day. It would be a hoot to see her and Sarah reunited again. I loved thier last interview. HAHAHA

    I am not Palin supporter but fair is fair.

    Palin shouldn’t have accepted to talk to you this time either.
    You gave the platform to Obama but not Palin or McCain but you did give it to Obama.

    Why? Because he was black. Or because he was the savior of the world?

    I hope she asks her how many ghostwriters it took to write that book.
