Oprah Not Filming Her Show In Egypt
3/5/2011 11:11am EST
Representatives for Oprah Winfrey have shot down reports the talk show queen is taping a future episode of her show in Egypt.
The country's new tourism minister Munir Fakhri Abdelnur reportedly told a local news station in Cairo that Winfrey was planning to broadcast a live show from Tahrir Square on "a Friday in March".
Tahrir Square became famous earlier this year when it turned into a meeting place for activists protesting the dictatorship of Egypt's now-ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
But Oprah's aides insist the talk show queen is not planning a trip to the Middle East.
A spokesperson for Winfrey's Harpo Studios tells WENN, "Reports about The Oprah Winfrey Show taping a future episode in Egypt are untrue. There are no plans for Ms. Winfrey or the show to broadcast from an international location before the program's finale in May."
