Quotable: Ellen DeGeneres’ Reaction To Oprah’s Announcement

By now you’ve probably heard the news that Oprah Winfrey, queen of daytime television, will be quitting her talk show after its 25th season on September 9, 2011. Friends and fans have started reacting to Oprah’s news, including fellow daytime talk show host and co-covergirl on this month’s O magazine, Ellen DeGeneres who had this to say to her studio audience yesterday:

“Hey listen, I’m going to tell you some news you’re going to hear as soon as you go out into the world, when you leave here. Right before I came out here, I got a call from Oprah and she told me that she is announcing that next year will be her last year. It will be her 25th year, and she feels like it’s time for her to stop. I don’t think I could be here without her. I think she has blazed a trail … She is an amazing woman. She will always be the Queen of Daytime Television, and she also said she is leaving me all of her money. I was like, thanks Oprah, thank you.”

Don’t worry, Ellen — you may not be getting all of Oprah’s money, but the departure of your biggest competitor sure can’t hurt your pocketbook. [via People.com]
