CHICAGO – Oprah Winfrey announced that she will be broadcasting her first all-nude episode!
In a controversial two-hour long episode, Oprah Winfrey appears completely naked in front of her viewing audience. It is the first time the talk-show host as ever made a nude appearance on live TV.
But that’s not all. According to the show’s public relations representatives, not only will Oprah be naked, but the whole audience will be naked too!
“There won’t be one piece of clothing on or off the set that day,” said Suzy Alexander, Senior Marketing Advisor for the ABC Network. “Everyone’s going to be naked: Oprah, her guests, the audience – even the crew will naked!”
Scheduled guests for the episode include Megan Fox, Mila Kunis, Scarlett Johansson, and Rosie O’Donnell. They will all be naked.
According to Orpah’s public relations specialist, Judy Denfield, the episode is a response to recent allegations that Oprah is overweight. Several critics, mostly from American tabloids, say the snappy talk-show host has gained 40 pounds over the last six months.
“A lot of people say that Oprah is too fat to be a talk-show host,” said Denfield. “This is her way of fighting back.”
“Tyra Banks did the same thing three years ago when the tabloids accused her of being too fat,” added Denfield, “only she appeared in her bathing suit, not in her birthday suit. But you know Oprah – she’s always taking things to the next level.”
Oprah Winfrey has certainly been open about her weight problems in the past. Over the past 10 years, her weight has yo-yoed from 135 to 240 pounds.
Oprah told the Weekly World News that she wants overweight women across America to know that there is nothing wrong with them, or their naked bodies.
“Big women are beautiful women,” she wrote on her blog last night. “And to prove it, we’re doing an all-naked show! No clothes, no inhibitions, no worries!”
Beth-Anne Rozinsky, a psychologist at the Women’s Health and Counseling Center in Portland, Oregon, said that Oprah’s all-nude show is a step in the right direction for women’s health.
“Most women are ashamed of their bodies,” she said. “And it’s all the media’s fault. Girls grow up thinking that being beautiful means being rail-thin and six-feet tall, because that’s what they see on television.”
“But Oprah’s going to turn that idea on its head,” added Rozinksy. “She’s going to prove that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes!”
The episode, which has been deemed too mature for network television, will air in select regions on Pay-Per View this Friday.
