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 Palin was right not to have an interview with Oprah
Oprah would not have been nice to her
Now Sarah will know how to respond to her
tell all release of lies
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 (SIC) other interviewers.
CHOSEN TO DO
Please, if you are a reporter, learn to use the language properly.
Sarah Palin truly goes to the highest bidder. Gee, do ya think Oprah's Book Club is not on her pea brain?
I will be sick if Oprah admits this junk to her book club. What an insult to the previous true authors of great works.
Knock her sock off, Sarah!! We love you!!
Op, why are you giving this woman the airtime? Geez. Hasn't America had enough of this whacko?
Sarah Palin certainly doesn't need Oprah to sell her new book – unlike most authors – but she is certainly smart to tap into Oprah's viewers and followers. She's much smarter than most people give her credit for. She's just beginning...
interesting now that she needs to sell a book that liberal media is important to palin.
Of course, like all other interviews, she'll not answer any questions. She'll certainly think Oprah's picking on her.
Unless Palin had a brain transplant, even Oprah can't make her seem interesting enough for me to watch the interview. (eye rolling)
She is going to cancel it... Hah...
I hope Ms. Winfrey has the backbone to ask this idiot about all the lies that she told (and continues to tell) during the campaign of 2008. This supposed college graduate (Palin) loved to try to putdown President Obama's social work as a community organizer while she was stumbling through school. Funny how she never mentioned that he was President of the Harvard Law Review and went on to teach constitutional law at the University of Chicago not to mention being elected to the U.S. Senate. All this criticism from someone who barely made it through Jr. College.
Please... She's only talking to Oprah because she wants publicity for her book. She refused Oprah's earlier requests to go on the show, but now that the book is coming out, all of a sudden she's willing to talk. She is SOOOOO transparent. What a phony!!
O goodie. an irrelevant wannabe and an overexposed TV personality. I can't wait. (NOT)
Why would she not want to talk to Oprah now? The woman knows how to get her book sell.
Gee....only for her book sales...What a mercenary.
Highly anticipated? Like the swine flu?? HAHAHAHA.
and will we find out that she has caught Palin in lies and inaccuracies and a tearful Palin will admit it, not unlike Oprah's last confession from a novelist
no, Palin had nothing to do with writing this book, can she even write?
A soft interview and another opportunity to peddle her coloring book. SO WHAT??
like we didn't expect this?
Funny how Oprah tops the list when there's a book to sell. Guess Oprah's support of Obama just doesn't matter any more - like the people of Alaska.
Oprah would sell her soul for ratings.....I'll take a pass on her and Hong Kong Sue.....
Who says bipartisanship is only lip service! :)
Palin, Forget about your book. To make as much money as Oprah does, demand your own show! To average folks, beauty beats knowledge hands down!
Looks like Lauren Kornreich skewed the reporting of the facts on this one? Was it not Oprah who refused to have Palin? Now Lauren is crafting the words to make it appear as if Oprah was the one who was dissed! Read carefully how Lauren twists what happen to create an entirely different impression! Oprah blocked Palin from access to her media and publically insulted Palin further by telling her to come back after the election (even though Oprah was actively using her media access to influence the election for other candidates). Amazing how "reporter" "journalist" Lauren misses informing her readers about that.
I don't care! I don't care! I don't care!
