Rick Springfield drops by Oprah tomorrow to make a guest's dreams come true. The episode in which the actor/singer appears features interior designer Nate Berkus participating in a makeover for a high school reunion. Later on in the show, the lucky viewer has a treat in store when Springfield belts out his classic 80's hit "Jessie's Girl" as part of her surprise. I wonder if he'll mention GH tomorrow.
Former One Day At A Time star Mackenzie Phillips, along with younger sister and Wilson-Phillips singer Chynna, will appear on Oprah tomorrow in the wake of the elder Phillip's shocking revelations against their father John.
Earlier in the week, the elder Phillips claimed to Oprah, she had a 10 year sexual relationship with the late Mamas and the Papas singer. According to Mackenzie's book, High On Arrival, the affair took place after "Papa John" alledgedly raped her while high on drugs when she was passed out on the eve of her first marriage.
The New York Post is reporting that Mark Consuelos will no longer be appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Fridays.
"Oprah" is moving away from the Friday-panel format it introduced last season, when Consuelos, et al. discussed a variety of topical issues each week.
Consuelos' rep declined comment yesterday, but sources say the actor, who's married to "Live's" Kelly Ripa, was inked to only a one-year deal.
The article indicates the decision to scrap the round table may have been ratings related. Alexandra Wentworth and Gayle King will continue to appear as "regulars" on the show.

Oprah called Houston's upcoming appearance “the most anticipated music interview of the decade.” Houston's new album I Look to You drops on Sept. 1. The new season of Oprah debuts on Sept. 14. Will you be tuning in?
Talk about worlds colliding! In an upcoming episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Jay-Z and The Mighty O, hung out in the rapper's old neighborhood in Brooklyn this past Sunday. The duo took a little trip to Hova's grandmother's home and then went by the infamous Marcy projects which the rapper immortalizes in songs. The episode is all part of a show where Jay will talk about how his childhood in the projects, becoming a rapper turned mogul, his life with wife Beyonce and his assistance with helping disadvantaged children.
I guess this will put to rest all those haters saying Oprah vetoes rappers coming on her show.
Not-So-Mighty O? Soap operas aren't the only daytime programs in trouble. The New York Post is reporting last week's ratings for The Oprah Winfrey Show were the lowest since 1983! While it should be noted Winfrey's talker is in re-runs due to the summer hiatus, these numbers have people in the industry panicking. If soaps are dying and talk shows are dying, what's left for the daypart of television other than recycled game shows?
