Oprah heading to White House to interview the Obamas

Posted: 12:24 PM ET

Oprah Winfrey will interview President Obama and his wife, Michelle, next month for a 60-minute program to air before Christmas, the talk show host announced Wednesday.

"Christmas at the White House: An Oprah Primetime Special" will air at 10 p.m. ET December 13 on ABC, her Web site said.

"The intimate, informative and entertaining hourlong special will include a one-on-one conversation with the president, marking the first time Oprah has interviewed him since he took office, as well as an exclusive sit-down interview with the first couple," it said.

The special "will showcase behind-the-scenes preparations as the White House gets ready for the holiday season," the Web site said.

I am disgusted that Larry King is having the "party crashers" on his show on Monday – he is clearly desperate for viewers. These people could have taken a fork, knife etc and hurt our President, Indian PM or many other VIPs – and THEY DID IT FOR ATTENTION...WHICH IS WHAT LARRY KING iS GIVING THEM. Time for Larry to go – his show really has gone downhill – funny it was a conversation at my T-Giving gathering from many people how lousy his show is. Silly guests AND he asks the softball questions with no follow-up. Time for Larry to go. No wonder CNN is way behind MSBNC and FOX NEWS for ratings.
