Getting OWNed: Gay chat show in Winfrey's aspirational pool

by Jeremy Hooper

Ryan-OconnorThe finalists for Oprah Winfrey's "Your OWN Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star" contest have just been announced. And lo and behold -- there's a gay themed program in the running:

Ryan O'Connor, of West Hollywood, Calif., who says he wants to be the country's gay best friend. "If a variety show and a traditional talk show had a baby, that'd be my show," he said.

Ryan will face off against nine other hopefuls once the show makes it January 7 debut. But if the rumor mill has taught us anything about Oprah, it's that gay chat tends to stick around the talk show queen regardless of all else.

May you be as persistent as the aforementioned gossip, Mr. O'Connor!
