Eight is enough? It is for Oprah Winfrey. The media mogul will visit "Late Show with David Letterman" for the first time in eight years.
Her return, which will take place Aug. 1, marks her second visit to the show -- the first was that aggrandized appearance in 2005 when she promoted the Broadway musical "The Color Purple," which she produced.
It was a historic TV moment (for some). It seemed to signal a burying of the hatchet after a 16-year feud -- apparently the product of a 1989 dine and ditch tab, which was later compounded with Letterman's infamous Uma-Oprah joke as host of the Academy Awards in 1995. It's a feud that Winfrey implied was all in Letterman's head when she appeared on his show.
While Letterman certainly hasn't usurped Gayle King as Winfrey's BFF, the two TV kingpins do play well together. Letterman has appeared on OWN's "Oprah's Next Chapter." And who can forget the Jay-Leno-Winfrey-Letterman sandwich at the Super Bowl three years ago?
