Oprah Winfrey Shares What She Learned from Ellen DeGeneres

Dwayne Johnson gets emotional in exclusive trailer for Oprah’s Master Class.

OWN follows last week’s Belief special with the regular season premiere of Master Class, a combination biography, interview and mentoring session built around famous entertainers. “Ain’t nothing like a good cry,” Dwayne Johnson says as he wipes away tears in the first trailer for season 5 of Oprah’s Master Class, an interview series that will feature episodes focusing on greats like Patti LaBelle and James Taylor in its upcoming installment.

Oprah Winfrey describes the show as one “that would allow people to learn from people who are mastering this thing called life.” In the trailer, Ellen DeGeneres — who is headlining the season’s first episode — gets brutally honest: “The one thing that I keep learning over and over again is that I don’t know nothing,” she says. “I mean, that’s my life lesson.” In a bit of a role reversal, the comedian had Oprah Winfrey on her show Friday, promoting the series, and sharing what she learned from DeGeneres’ episode. “You know what I didn’t know — and I was surprised at myself because I’m pretty empathetic as a person — but I really didn’t realize until I saw that Master Class how hard it was for you to say, ‘I’m gay,’” she said on Ellen. After realizing this, Winfrey said she finally figured out the true legacy of DeGeneres. “The real work that you’ve done on the planet will be teaching people how to live authentically as themselves,” the TV magnate said to applause. It made me feel ashamed that I couldn’t feel honest and really be who I am, and I just didn’t want to pretend to be somebody else anymore so that people would like me.” In August 2008, DeGeneres tied the knot with girlfriend Portia de Rossi.

Were that not reason enough for joy, this Treehouse returns with one of the show’s greatest villains in tow, Sideshow Bob — voiced, as always, by Kelsey Grammer. The pair have been happily wed since, despite oft-recurring reports that their marriage is on the rocks. “We’re kind of flattered [by the breakup rumors], because for a while no one cared about us, and we thought ‘Oh, lesbians aren’t worthy of tabloid stories!'” she joked while visiting Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show in September. “We’re kind of flattered that they even care about us.” Unhappily for Bob, things seldom end happily for Bob, which is something longtime viewers know.While that’s the best segment, there’s also amusement to be had from a Godzilla that takeoff that simultaneously spoofs cheap Japanese horror films and bloated Hollywood blockbusters.

The series, which uses dual timelines to tell its story, received a mixed critical reception in Britain, but for fans of Showtime’s terrific comedy Episodes, Guilty offers a special draw: star Tamsin Greig in a dramatic turn as the lead detective.
