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.

    Oh Oprah!

    I've lost all respect for you.

    You now fall under the do NOT watch, Jerry Springer category.

    Why does someone like Oprah lower herself to Sarah Palin's level and beg to interview her? Come on people, Sarah Palin is an ignorant idiot and if it hadn't been for McCain last year, no one would have ever heard of her. It is absolutely insane how people are going gaga over this moron.

    How could Oprah stoop so low! Anything for ratings. i will not be watching. I thought Oprah had class. Apparently not. On second thought, I need some comedy relief. She should invite Rob Blogajavich and Sanford from South Carolina to complete the circus! :)

  9. Who put the twit in twitter? Sarah!

    Shameless promotion of her book. That's what this is all about. I 'd like to watch her choke on one of her mooseburgers.

    I hope Oprah does not ask her hard questions, or the wingnuts will go crazy. Keeping it simple like, "How are you today?" or "Do you still live in Alaska?"

    Confused am I...
    Now, is former Governor Palin going to be on Oprah, or the person who actually wrote the book?
    Just askin'!

    Palin wrote a tell all book. If it is based on fact that has been checked by a reputable source that might just run up to ten-twele pages. If you leave wide margins and double spaced, of course.

    Go Brainiac, go.

    Good chance for Oprah to expose what an idot Sarah palin is and put her down.

    So now Mrs. Palin will go on the Oprah show because she can make $ from it...funny how that works isn't it? She was able to sway some of her supporters from watching Oprah because she refused to sit down at the time of the election, but now that she stands a chance to make $ from it, she will....chasing the American Dream must be "en-Rogue"

    I do not think that she will show up. I don't think that Oprah will agree to Palin's list of softballs. Plus I don't think she wants to answer questions about her new castle that she is building next to her other house. Also, too she might get asked about her pregnancy hoax.

    Big mistake. Oprah is in the tank with Obama and will be gunning for Palin big time. Oprah will do everything she can to trip her up...probably ask the "impossible to answer" question that will top Katie Couric's question. I am sure Oprah's people are crafting that question right now.

    Atta girl, Oprah. FORCE her to come on your show. They used to pretend she could be president, and now she's crawling for dollars. She's the Quitter with Twitter! Failin' Palin! Cut-and-run-cuda! And "Going Rouge" is the perfect name for a book about a lipsticked pig.

    My, my, how the smell of cash makes Ms. "Real America" more social. Hopefully she will make some sense during the interview.
