March 20, 2009, 12:43 PM ESTCHICAGO (AP) -- Oprah Winfrey offered to share the cover of O magazine with Ellen DeGeneres, and DeGeneres — who's been campaigning for the spot — has accepted.
Winfrey surprised DeGeneres with a video telephone call on Friday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show." She told a shocked DeGeneres that she was "calling to officially invite you on the cover of O."
DeGeneres, who's been mounting a campaign for the cover during her "Ellen" talk show, told Winfrey: "I can't believe you're serious about this. I'm freaking out right now."
Winfrey had gone solo on the cover of O magazine for nine years before sharing the spot with first lady Michelle Obama.
