Oprah is leaving her 25-year-run as a talk show host to devote more time to her cable network, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network), which launched in January.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Winfrey admitted that she had not been putting enough attention into the network stating [the network] is not where I want it to be. I wouldn't even say 10 percent of my times in on OWN right now. But, it will be, she stated.
Oprah said that after The Oprah Winfrey Show ends she'll be able to give her attention to OWN.
It's going to improve exponentially with the amount of time and service I can give to it.
Last week, 13,000 fans and some of Hollywood's A-list came out to bid The Oprah Winfrey Show a final goodbye during the 'Farewell Spectacular.' Stars at the taping included, Beyonce, Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Michael Jordan, and Maria Shriver.
Beyonce performed her new single, Run the World (Girls), which seemed more than appropriate considering Oprah was ranked as the 3rd most powerful women in 2010.
Before the performance, Beyonce said to Oprah and 13,00 adoring fans, Oprah Winfrey, because of you, women everywhere have graduated to a new level of understanding of what we are, of who we are, and most importantly who we can be. Run the world, Oprah.
We can run the world!
Oprah watched with a look of amazement as thousands of fans danced in the audience, with lights in their hands, while Beyonce performed.
