Oprah and Ellen go way back and their conversations are always passionate, entertaining, and extraordinary.

As a media icon, Oprah reigned supreme with her talk show and has turned her immense success into the popular television network OWN. Magazines, books, inspirational tours and countless opportunities have been generated from the entertainer's platform, and her film career has been equally fruitful.

On top of it all, Oprah's kindness holds its own, which is why she received a special honor from the Academy in 2012 for her humanitarian efforts. Ellen will hear all the latest in Oprah's incredible journey when the two hosts catch up!
