I have been sending letters and emails to oprah to have venus and serena on her show! whats the deal? They have done so much and have never been on there! She had that tiger woods guy on, why not the williams sisters. I wonder what the deal is, is it mutual? Do they just not want to be on Oprah?

Anyone know whats up?

Cy,
Venus has indeed been on Oprah. In fact, she was on about six years ago with other childhood sensations. Ironically, Tiger Woods was on the show as well.

Contact Harpo studios, I think they do actually.

Maybe there's a phone number or something somewhere on that site... I didn't look around too much.

You're correct clocker, but that was before she became the star she is today.

Cy, I thought for sure Oprah would have had the Williams sisters on there after the historical US Open final, but :sad:ly, she has not. And she had Tiger on there after he won a major (forgot what it was) last year. Tiger has been on there several times, as a matter of fact. I emailed the show about a month after the Open and asked what was up with that! I got no response.:confused:

I'm not an Oprah-holic, but I don't ever remember seeing any tennis player there. Not even Chris, Martina I, or anybody like that.

according to andre fans, he was there once but that was when he was a still a teenager!
I guess Venus and Serena's only chance to get in is get in a fight and try to fix with dr phil
I am a dr phil-holic ;)

LOL@ Irma!
It would seem that Oprah would have two of the most popular athletes in the world on as she did a one man show on Tiger and his dad.

Who knows, maybe she doesn't like folks from Compton.

I could be that there is no WTA Tournament near Chicago (Where Oprah tapes her show). When the Williams Sister's were on the Tonight Shoe, they were playing a tournament that was in Los Angeles.
It would be nice for Oprah to do a Williams Family Show. Just wait for Venus and Serena to win more Grand Slams and get the Number 1 and 2 rankings.

With respect, cybell, there are many notable, inspirational celebrities like Venus & Serena, black or otherwise, who have yet to appear on Oprah's show. Don't get me wrong; I'd love to see them on there but there's no obligation on Oprah's or the Williams' part to have them on/be on the show.

I think that show is fake. I like Oprah and her role in Color Purple, but the "Oprah" show and just the people on it makes me cringe.

Venus & Serena would do better not to be on it anyway.

Oprah always has people like Julia Roberts, Tiger Woods and all her close friends on it. Eck..

it is against Oprah's policy to pay appearance fees. that would not go over too well with Richard i suspect.

Andre indeed WAS on the Oprah show something like ten years ago. I actually remember it.

It was about "Sexy People" (remember, this was before Oprah ordained herself Reverend Oprah), and the panel had a bunch of semi-famous people who somehow thought they were experts on "sexiness". The ones I remember are Jon Secada, Siedah something (she did the duet with Michael Jackson on "I Just Can't Stop Loving You"), and of course Mr. Image Is Everything himself.

The whole show was ridiculous, with everyone bragging about themselves along the lines of "I don't see anything special about myself, but I notice that other people SURE do" and so forth. Andre's line was "You know something's going on when you play and there are 20,000 screaming people watching you." Of course, Andre didn't mention that 20,000 people would've attended the U.S. Open matches whether or not Andre was playing (He was popular, but it wasn't like the stands were exactly empty before he came on to the scene). Andre was such a pain those days, I tell you.

Anyways, out of the panel, I thought Jon Secada came out the best, simply because he talked the least and appeared uncomfortable to be a part of it all.

Why hasn't JENNIFER CAPRIATI been on Oprah????

Why hasn't OPRAH done a show on STALKERS featuring SELES, HINGIS and SERENA?

Maybe Oprah has seen how evasive the sisters have been in interviews and doesn't want to deal with that on her show! OPRAH IS THE GODDESS! THE QUEEN! THE EMPRESS! Oprah will always be the best!

Yeah, Beige, even if Jenny was kicking and screaming all the way.

I honestly think they just don't have time, with all of their other endorsement committments , tournaments and other things they have to do. I read an article where Serena said they were asked to host Saturday Night Live and they wanted to do it but didn't have time.

Beige - seeing as tennischick isn't even a Jenn fan as far as I know, that was extremely lame.

tommyk75 - LMAO :D Thanks for telling about the episode! Andre back then - sexy? ROTFLMFAO :D Please! He had hair to his butt, a receding hairline, and wore cutt of jeans to his matches :rolleyes: He was a fashion faux pas extrodinairre :D

OH how times change lmao :D

I found andre cute with long hair till around 93, then it turned me off :o

Irma - wasn't that also about around the same time that his hairline started to recede :o

irma
May 24th, 2002, 09:39 AM
yeah but that was not the reason why it started to turn off on me
I read an article about his eatinghabits that time and it was not nice and suddenly his hair looked dirty too in my eyes when I saw him, weird :o

Oprah is fake. Her show's purpose is to make everyday women feel rich, something that they are not.

Maybe it's Venus and Serena's choice not to be on Oprah - I'm sure they'd have been asked by now.

Becca, my comment had nothing to do with who is (or is not) tennischick's fave. I know Stefano's history so it was a dig at him.
Fine, you found it lame...as I did your US Open info thread, you, drama queen, you. :rolleyes:

Oprah, is an all American women. She has no obligation to have Venus and Serena on her show. However, I still do think it's odd that they have never been on her show after there achievements. But I know the real reason she has not invited them, as well as everyone in the USA. Their is no need to go over it, you understand how it all works.

Anyways, I stopped being an Oprah fan after color purple. I wan't Miss Sofia back, I wan't the "You told harpo to beat me" back. The last time I saw an episode was when she had that loser Dr. Phil who is so arrogant IMO. Her show is going down, but those good ole house wives still keep her rolling.

I can't believe I forgot about this til now. Venus WAS on a talk show: the Montel Williams show. This was right after she made the U.S. Open final for the first time. The show was pretty cool, with appearances by Serena and Zina Garrison. It was one of the very few Montel shows I could stomach (as annoying as Oprah gets, Montel was far far worse).
