Could Oprah Land an Interview With Maria Shriver?

Hot on the heels of news Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger are separating, speculation is already swirling that Oprah may try to land an interview with the former First Lady of California.  E! Online wonders if Shriver might appear on one of the final The Oprah Winfrey Show episodes or in an interview on OWN.

If Winfrey plays her cards right, she could end her 25-year talk show reign with what is now the biggest get in the news business—an interview with Maria Shriver.

But does Winfrey even need a ratings boost for these last couple of weeks of her talk show? Not at all.

OWN, however, could use the help. The four-month-old network has been struggling in the ratings department. If Winfrey is able to snag Shriver for a sit-down (and we believe if anyone can, it's Ms. Winfrey), there's only one place for them to do it—in front of the OWN cameras.

Meanwhile, in an interview the Chicago Tribune, Oprah reveals she wants to appear on Broadway.

I'd doubt that Oprah would be so predatory to want to interview one of her closest friends this soon after the announcement of a break up. Friends don't prey on friends.

25 years in Hollyweird marriage that is a mild stone. Looking forward to T5 T4 sucked without Arnold, they guy they got playing Conan, is a girlyman. Loved Conan: The Barbadian, is my favorite movie.

If they do sit down to CHAT, I do hope it's over Wings, Burgers, Chips 'n dip, etc. Maria....Girl, you need to gain some weight!

I don't find the topic THAT interesting. Tipper and Al were more suprising to me. And Maria keeps these Family Matters (Think Kennedy Miniseries) close to the vest (as well she should, esp. about this)

Anyone watch 'Behind the Scene's" on OWN. FAAAB Show! I would Love to see one of Op's last shows interviewing her producers. What a FANTASTIC crew she has.
