How to save her failing network: Get married on live TV! That's Oprah Winfrey's plan, insiders tell the National Enquirer. Oprah's romantic proposal to longtime partner Stedman Graham reportedly included an offer of a $100 million "prenup" and the tearful line, "You're the only one who can save the day." Her fall nuptials will rival even the royal wedding, a TV insider says, plus there will be months of riveting programming beforehand covering every tiny detail, from dress shopping to invitation engraving to selecting the site, food, and band.
"There’ll be the bridal showers"—because who doesn't want to watch a bridal shower on TV?—and "even Stedman’s bachelor party will be televised on OWN," the insider says. Oprah "can even hold contests for lucky viewers to attend the wedding," because there's nothing more romantic than sharing your special day with a random member of your TV audience. And then—yes, it gets even more romantic—"she can take Stedman on an around-the-world honey¬moon and televise all the exotic places they go." Coverage of ceremony and reception alone "can run for weeks," the insider claims—doesn't that sound like fun? Click for more from the Enquirer—which, don't forget, has been right before.
