Turns out, Oprah Winfrey wasn't lyin' when she told reporters that her jury-duty stint couldn't last longer than a week because she's "got shows to do." While it's true The Oprah Winfrey Show doesn't kick off its new season until Sept. 13, a brand-new episode featuring an exclusive interview with new mom Gwyneth Paltrow airs Thursday. Sorry I ever doubted you, O. In the meantime, if it's possible, can I get eight tickets to this season's "Oprah's Favorite Things"? All of a sudden my Aunt Joan wants to come, too.
