A TV producer has acquired the rights to Kitty Kelley's biography of the queen of all media, Oprah Winfrey, which paints the talk show host as a liar, closet lesbian and a former prostitute.
Producer Larry A. Thompson plans on turning the book into a mini-series that will air in September of 2011, which is right around the time Oprah will retire her show.
Although Thompson tells Deadline Hollywood that he plans on hiring an "unknown" to play the diva, we think casting some more famous actresses to play Oprah and longtime friend Gayle King might make the lesbian scenes a little easier to bear!
We have a few suggestion on who should play the chat queen and her sidekick Gayle -- who would YOU like to see in the roles?
