It's the end of an era as TV talk show host legend, Oprah Winfrey, signs off from her daytime television talk show, the Oprah Winfrey Show, after 25 years to focus on her latest project, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), part of DISH Network programming. The countdown to Oprah's last episode is more bitter than sweet in many of her fans' opinions, with some viewers having grown up watching Ms. Winfrey every weekday of their lives. With only ten episodes left, Oprah Winfrey will be hosting a lot of "last times" on her show including Thursday's 'Last Ever Makeover Extravaganza' featuring the nation's top fashion designers: Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF) and Tory Burch (check out the preview below). The remaining ten episodes have been mostly kept under wraps by the HARPO Studios staff to help build viewer anticipation for the last week and a half left of the show. According to TheDaily.com, two of the last ten episodes of the Oprah Winfrey Show will be dedicated to "Million Little Pieces" author, James Frey - a two-episode worthy interview being promoted as "the biggest controversy in Oprah Show history" after reports that his famous book actually included fabricated pieces. The online news outlet is also reporting that Oprah's close celebrity friends, couple Will and Jada Pinkett Smith will be some of her last guests on the finale episode, May 25 (no news yet as to whether the couple's children Jaden and Willow will be making an appearance). Other than those two announcements, it's still up in the air as to whether hopeful guests like Oprah's longtime partner Stedman Graham will appear on the finale episode along with friend and former Oprah Show guest Tom Cruise with wife Katie Holmes.
