Stars React to Oprah's Decision to End Show

Oprah announcing that she's planning on ending The Oprah Winfrey Show was not only a little shocking, it was a little heartbreaking as well.

The talk show queen announced yesterday, through her production company Harpo that her last episode will be on September 11, 2011, which will mark the 25th anniversary of her successful talk show.

She's set to address her audience today and make the public announcement. Earlier today she tweeted, "Big Day....tune in my tweet friends."

Fans aren't the only ones upset about the news, some of Oprah's good friends are now reacting to the news:

Gayle King:

"This was definitely Oprah's decision, and Oprah's decision alone...I think that Oprah always makes the best decision for herself. I really do. And I have a feeling she will come up with some things to do. She has a very full life … We don't need to worry about her filling her time, I promise you that! Life is good for her."

Ellen Degeneres:

"Hey listen, I'm going to tell you some news you're going to hear as soon as you go out into the world, when you leave here. Right before I came out here, I got a call from Oprah and she told me that she is announcing that next year will be her last year. It will be her 25th year, and she feels like it's time for her to stop," Ellen told her studio audience on Thursday. "I don't think I could be here without her. I think she has blazed a trail ... She is an amazing woman...She will always be the Queen of Daytime Television...and she also said she is leaving me all of her money. I was like, thanks Oprah, thank you."
