Oprah Winfrey is at the center of attention today for being what seems to be the shoulder to cry on for her friend Maria Shriver.
Maria, who has been at the center of a firestorm due to her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infidelity, flew to Chicago Tuesday night and right into the arms of Oprah.
Maria shared the stage with Oprah for the taping of "Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular," and "Showbiz Tonight" was right there.
It is not surprising that Maria would reach out to Oprah at a time like this, seeing that they're close friends. But it is has also been rumored that Oprah may have a show in the works for Maria on Oprah’s new network, OWN.
I think this sounds great and is just what Maria needs at this time. As I said, the two are very close friends and two very powerful women, so I think O will play a big role in providing comfort and advice to Maria.
So what do you think? Can Oprah help Maria? Tell me below.
