Kitty Kelley Gets Talk Show Cold Shoulder for Oprah Bio

Oprah: A BiographyShe has written about the Bush family, the Royals, the Reagans and the Kennedys. Now, Kitty Kelley's latest sensationalistic tome is about the Queen of Daytime Talk Shows, Oprah Winfrey. This time, she may have bitten off more than she can chew.

After all, when most writers come out with a new book to appeal to the gossipy crowd, they try to make an appearance on Oprah in order to promote it. In this case, it can be safely said that it won't happen. In fact, a myriad of other talk shows refuse to allow Kelley to appear and promote her latest work. Perhaps Kelley should stick to dead celebrities in the future to avoid retribution from the talk community?

Granted, Kitty Kelley is a big enough name that the book will likely sell even without the assistance of the talk show crowd. It could be argued that Oprah actually is helping sales simply by her name being on the cover.

When she wrote her Nancy Reagan biography, Kelley received anonymous death threats. Oprah's acolytes probably won't be as kind.

When Kelley was writing books bashing conservatives the talk shows were falling all over themselves to have her on so they could lick her ass like a creamsickle (h/t Mary Shannon). What is different this time other than the fact the subject of the book is a liberal?

Are you saying Oprah's "acolytes" will do something more disturbing than death threats? Most of the death threats concerning the Nancy Reagan book came from the Conservative fringe. I doubt you'll see something similar from Oprah's "acolytes."
