Lucy Lawless Says No to Oprah
"Xena: Warrior Princess star Lucy Lawless has taken a swipe at Oprah by announcing that it will be a cold day in you-know-where before she sets foot on her talk show.
Lucy, a fan of motivational speaker Tony Robbins lashed out at Oprah's Change-Your-Life TV, saying Oprah's touchy-feely style is too warm and fuzzy for her. She prefers Xena's sword-swinging, take-charge approach to life.
"Our show is not an Oprah show", says the 30-year-old star of the syndicated series.
"Oprah's kind of a Touched by an Angel type gal and never the two the two shall meet. You're either a Touched by an Angel fan or you're a Xena fan." (Lasha, are you listening? ;-))) )
"My life's going to have to change a whole lot before she gets me in the room."
