    I adored her on Falcon Crest. She stole the show every time she had a scene. RIP!

    Johnny Belinda and the Glass Menagerie are 2 of my favorite classics.

    She was definitely a classy lady.

    A very classy lady, indeed, and a fine actress. I loved her anthology series, "The Jane Wyman Show," in television's early days.

    Oprah Winfrey Welcomes David Letterman on Her Show

    Television history was made Monday, when, after many years of his pleading make that, requesting David Letterman finally appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

    As expected, he was funny, especially when he chronicled his one-time attempts to be invited on her program. To prove it, he showed clips from his own Late Show, in which Barbara Walters, Martha Stewart, Julia Roberts and Tom Cruise all separately told Letterman they had been on the air with Winfrey. Stewart even pointed out that Winfrey gives her an entire hour.

    "Why didn't you just pick up the phone?" Winfrey asked him.

    As was not expected, "He's a li'l bit nervous," said Winfrey, 53, before Letterman, 60, entered the Madison Square Garden stage, where the 22nd-season premiere of her show took place. His hands planted firmly in his suit pockets, Letterman appeared tight-lipped, even when she gave him a big, warm hug.

    Later, his eyeglasses fogged up. "I think that also may be you, Oprah," he explained.

    Letterman didn't spend his entire appearance joking. He spoke warmly about being a father, to 4-year-old son Harry, and called being a parent "ideal for me," despite his also saying, "It is the constant razor's edge do you make your point with patience or discipline?"

    During the 30 minutes Letterman sat and talked with her, Winfrey told him that when he "graciously" had her on his show in 2005 and then walked her down the street to the opening of the Broadway musical she produced, The Color Purple, it was "one of the highlights of my career." To prove it, she showed Letterman the photograph of their walking together that is framed in her office.

    Letterman was still gracious. Pulling a piece of paper from his suit pocket, he announced the Top 10 Reasons I Love Oprah:

    10. She smells great.
    9. Without her, we would never have known that quack, Dr. Phil.
    8. She helped me start my wildly popular "D" magazine.
    7. We're yoga buddies.
    6. Oprah's incredibly busy, yet she still finds time to ignore my calls.
    5. She agreed to validate my parking.
    4. Taught me how to launder money in the Cayman Islands.
    3. Any time I'm in Chicago she lets me crash on her couch.
    2. Oprah gave me my first post-surgery sponge bath.
    1. She's giving everybody in today's audience a new house.

    I love Dave!!!

    Looks like OJ Simpson might be arrested for robbery. Its all over CNN and MSNBC right now. Wow, he must really miss the limelight, first was the book, then criticising the Goldman's who wanted the money from the book and now this. I have also heard he was battering his Florida girlfriends.

    I heard that, bearcata! Something about it being a room of a sports memorabilia collector who OJ believed had some of his items. But apparently they caught him with non-OJ items as well.

    How insane.

    Someone PLEASE tell me that life in prison without the possibility of parole is an acceptable sentence for robbery in Nevada!

    Dave is funny! Usually, it's not even what he says...it's HOW he says it. I like Oprah, too.

    His Top 10 for Oprah is hysterical!

    I surely am hoping and praying that --- FINALLY --- what went around is starting to COME around.
