Oprah Plans 2-Episode Interview With James Frey

oprah finale

Oprah Winfrey's interview with author James Frey will stretch over two episodes during the final full week of her talk show.

The shows will air May 16 and 17, more than five years after Winfrey accused Frey on live television of lying in one of his books. During a short promotional clip on Tuesday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" an announcer deemed it "the biggest controversy in Oprah show history."

Winfrey chose Frey's substance abuse story "A Million Little Pieces," for her book club in September 2005, making it a million-seller.

Frey subsequently acknowledged on Winfrey's show in January 2006 that he had lied in the book. Winfrey told him she felt duped and that he had betrayed millions of readers.
