(Newser) – Rumors that Sarah Palin hasn't been invited to appear on Oprah are way off the mark, the talk-show queen tells Extra. "I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over," Oprah said. In fact, the Alaska governor seems to be going out of her way to avoid the famous couch, she added.

"I tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta Van Susteren," Oprah said. "She talked to Matt Lauer. She talked to Larry King, but she didn't talk to me. Maybe she'll talk to me now that she has a book deal." Oprah said there was always an open invitation for Michelle and Barack Obama to appear on the show.
