Big, big news today in the world of talk shows and very wealthy and powerful women. Oprah, that’s right, the Oprah Winfrey, is ending her talk show in 2011. She’s set to make the announcement on her show today. It’s had a brilliant run, being the number-one rated talk show for the last 23 consecutive years! 42 million U.S. viewers watch it every week, and it broadcasts to 145 countries. Imagine if that many people knew your face.

As September 9, 2011 approaches…the final broadcast…fans are devastated, hurt, confused..but I’m sure Oprah is at least kind of relieved. I mean, she’s been working this show for 25 years, give the woman a break! We’ve heard from various reports that she loves to ski in Aspen when she can. Now, she’ll have oodles of free time to do that, and I’m sure she can’t wait.

Thank you for the memories, the tears, the smiles, and the cars, Oprah. Please enjoy all your free time in Aspen, and we hope to see you on the slopes up there soon!
