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.

    Ok Oprah, please don't ask ANY hard questions. her volcabulary isn't that great and you would probably be talking over her head. ask her about hunting, fishing, having babies and quitting. But stay away from politcs, newspapers, magazines, any current events. Oh you might ask her about Russia, since she can see it from her house.

    If there is one thing about Sarah Palin, she is predictable in her opportunism. She never lets a gift moment to further her self serving agenda go to waste. I find it so sad that many like herself who trumpet their "Christianity" never let their actions mirror what comes out of their mouths when it comes to their "faith."

    Good lord. I hope Oprah doesn't get all in Sarah's face and ask tough biased questions, like, "What do you read? or any other super hard unfair librul gotcha questions.

    Unlike the GOPers who take every chance to blog to spew hate, demonize and criticize President Obama, his family and staff etc., I wont go into the 'gutter of hate'.

    Palin has the same freedom of speech we all do, Oprah has freedom of speech also. Good for both of them, talking is the way we influence and learn about each other.

    PEACE!

    Oprah should have written her off. It is disappointing that Palin is getting air time.

    Oh, this oughtta be good. An hour of Oprah "I am the greatest thing since sliced bread" Winfrey and Sarah "No, Oprah, I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread" Palin.

    I can't wait to see/hear the lowlights on The Daily Show and Colbert Report.

    Must be slow news day for CNN. They don't get it that this woman is a joke, not a public figure AND WE DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANY MORE ABOUT HER. She resigned, for pity sakes. Please get some better filler material for slow days.

    I was going to make a comment about Palin but why waste the time with a waste of time such as her?

    Oprah will do anything for ratings.
