TV Alert: Ellen gets personal on “Oprah”

After a self-promotion campaign that involved everything from waiting on hold at Harpo in front of a live studio audience to sending Justin Timberlake on an emissary mission, Ellen DeGeneres‘ quest to share the cover of O Magazine with Oprah has finally come to fruition. And today, The Oprah Winfrey Show is having “An Oprah Exclusive Event: Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi!”

Oprah revealed two of the four possible O Magazine covers at Oprah.com this morning, and revealed the final two on her show today.

Last week, the Dynamic Duo was at Water Tower Park in Chicago, handing out the magazine and signing the first 1,000 copies. I think Ellen’s pretty excited about merging their collective superpowers because she’s been Tweeting about it like a kid hopped up on Pixie Stix for the last 24 hours.

On today’s Oprah, Ellen will be talking about her new gig at American Idol, her wedding and her home life. It’s the first interview she and Portia have done together. I’m sure it will be a lot of fun and a lot of “awww”s, because that’s what happens any time the two of them share a stage.

Ellen and Oprah’s December issue of O Magazine hits shelves on Nov. 12.

Do you plan to tune in and/or pick up a copy of O? Which cover do you like best?
