The Oprah Winfrey Show
After careful consideration, I will need to postpone the taping of the Oprah Winfrey interview scheduled for February 22. I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future.
Former The View co-host and Oprah Winfrey Show contributor Lisa Ling sat down with Wendy Williams on February 16 to talk about her new show Our America with Lisa Ling on OWN. During the interview Williams asked Ling to weigh in on the tragic news that CBS journalist Lara Logan had been sexually assaulted by an angry Egyptian mob. Ling responded,
“We don’t know the circumstances yet, but when I first heard the story yesterday I was devastated. I have never met her, but she does incredible work and I wish her and her family well and hope that she comes back strong because her work is really unique. She’s a very courageous woman and I wish her well.

On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke, Jamey, Jillian, Regan and Melodie dish the latest All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and news, including:
Oprah’s must watch Legendary Soap Opera Spectacular episode. What did the DC gang think of Oprah’s guests Anthony Geary, Genie Francis, Susan Lucci, Michael E. Knight, Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams, Jeanne Cooper and Erica's many husbands? Based on Genie Francis' comments, does the DC gang expect to see her back on GH? One of the loudest cheers from the Oprah audience came when Oprah mentioned Michael Nader as Dimitri Marick among Erica’s ex-husbands. Wouldn’t it be great if Dimitri returned to Pine Valley?
Last week Luke and Regan weren’t happy with All My Children, but Jamey has been enjoying it. Hear what he thinks about the current state of Pine Valley.
The Bold and the Beautiful celebrates its 6000th episode with a special episode about lung cancer. While the story is poignant and relevant, should B&B be careful of becoming to preachy? Jillian weighs in on Thomas and Dayzee's budding relationship.
Jamey has been holding in a Days of our Lives rant for a while, but enough is enough. Jamey goes off on the abysmal state of NBC’s last soap. From Jennifer’s organ harvesting storyline to fake Rafe, nothing escapes his ire. Why isn’t DAYS trying to get things in shape now, instead of worrying about it later when an axe is swinging over its head? READ MORE
Oprah’s "Legendary Soap Star Spectacular" episode airs today! During the soaptastic episode General Hospital’s Genie Francis and Tony Geary reunite onscreen to talk about their character's iconic romance.
All My Children scored great coverage during the episode, with Susan Lucci and all of Erica’s husbands on stage. How great will it be to see Michael Nader (ex-Dimitri)? I wouldn’t be surprised if Oprah’s pal Tyler Perry watches, or at least sets his DVR, today since he’s mentioned Katherine Chancellor in the past and the faboosh Jeanie Cooper represents The Young and the Restless.
Now for a smal gripe. I know it’s a lot to pack into just one hour, but couldn’t they have fit in Days of Our Lives' Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso or Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn? Watch the Oprah promo after the jump!
