Oprah is apparently pulling out all the stops for her final run of shows, starting with an invitation to Donald Trump to finally get rid of his infamous hairstyle on air.
Oprah has announced that her final show will air on May 25th. She has been on hiatus for weeks, preparing for the final set of episodes. (Those start on April 7.) She’s also been trying to bolster her struggling OWN network by tweeting during episodes, rejiggering the channel’s schedule and hyping her soon-to-be flagship star, Rosie O’Donnell.
But Oprah is not one to let big moments go by without a bang, and the New York Post reports that her team has reached out to Trump and a host of other big stars to get makeovers on air. Sources told the paper that Oprah’s people promised that the episode would “become one of those historical television moments that will become iconic.” Presumably, she will want Trump to emerge with an entirely new look–perhaps a mohawk or buzz-cut?
It would be the second time this season that Trump has appeared on the show. Previously, he showed up with his entire family. Apparently, Oprah is still interested in having him on, even as Trump has courted more and more controversy recently with his embrace of the “birthers” who question President Obama’s citizenship.
