Her rep debunks report that there is plan to broadcast Oprah Winfrey's talk show from the country's capital.
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."
