Coming Out on Oprah on 'The Real L Word'Not getting support from your family can be tough. This is the problem that Nikki is dealing with on 'The Real L Word' (Sun., 10PM ET on SHO).

In her twenties, Nikki was married to a man -- but then she decided the whole "straight" thing wasn't for her, and came out as a lesbian in front of a national audience on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' These days, Nikki is planning on getting married to her fianceé Jill. But her father isn't happy about the situation.

Nikki hasn't heard from her father in four years. The last time she talked him was after she came out on 'Oprah' in 2006. At that point, her dad called her and said this: "I was in my house ... and turned on 'Oprah,' and saw a beautiful woman, and I thought to myself, 'What a waste of a woman,' when I heard the subject matter. And then I realized it was [my daughter]."

While doing an uncover report in Korea, Laura was captured -- along with her colleague Euna Lee -- and was held captive for 140 days.

In the end, Laura was freed due to some help at the highest level. Specifically, she was released with aid from former President Bill Clinton. Laura told Oprah Winfrey about the experience of being saved by an ex-President: "It was unreal; it was surreal," she said. "[I was] ushered into a room, and standing before [me] was President Clinton. And I seriously felt like it was this angelic figure that had come to save [me]."

It was a lucky release for Ling. She had been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor, and was held captive without running water, in prison cells that were often pitch black.

After the Oprah-calypse: Who Can Fill Oprah's Seat?

by Stephanie Earp, posted Apr 6th 2010 11:58PM


Rumor has it that Rosie O'Donnell is being set up as Oprah's replacement when the Daytime Queen retires from her eponymous show in 2011. At least that's how the industry gossips put it. The truth is that while Rosie is planning a talk show to launch when the Oprah set goes dark, it's being produced by a different company and will probably run on cable, not on ABC.

But who can resist speculating about who could replace Oprah Winfrey? Since Oprah announced that her show would be ending its 25-year run, a short list of possible candidates has included Ellen DeGeneres, Rachael Ray, Martha Stewart, Sarah Palin, Tyra Banks and even Michelle Obama. But I think Oprah is irreplaceable. Sure, you could give another woman her time-slot, but in the world of daytime talk, time-slots are meaningless. You live or die on your own ability to capture the public imagination.
