Essentially, it has to do with Oprah's overall audience... Oprah's loyal audience. There is a certain demographic who watch the show, and they expect a certain type of fluff mixed in with one or two hard pressing questions.
I agree with you. I am not a fan of Oprah and almost never watch her shows. A long time ago she had Diane Von Furstenberg along with Prince Egon VF and Kiko (Ira VF's son) and I forget who else but the gist of the whole conversation was letting the mortals have a glimpse of "royalty". She never explained to the audience the relationship betweek Kiko and Egon but was anxious to one more time discuss the fabulous expensive wedding of the Alexes VF. and let the little people see the "Royals" up close.
Sorry to refer to the two dead gentlemen (P. Egon VF & Kiko VH.)
