Despite online reports claiming Juan-Carlos Cruz, the former Food Network star accused of hiring homeless men to kill his wife, will be chatting with Oprah Winfrey ... Harpo says it's not going to happen.

A rep tells X17online exclusively:

    "Yes, show producers reached out to Cruz's attorney and right now, there are no immediate plans to feature his story on the show."

As for whose initial idea it was to reach out to Cruz's attorney, we're told "It was the show's producers, not Oprah."

Glad to clear that up.
