Where in the world are all of those guests that appeared on 25 seasons of the "The Oprah Winfrey Show"? With a daytime TV run that boasted 25 years and 4,561 shows, there sure were a lot of people in and out of the Queen of Talk's studio! And since the OWN head honcho now has an entire network to populate, it's only fitting that she open up the old "Oprah Show" archives and give her fans an update on some of the most memorable guests from that crazy-long talk-show run.
Fast forward to the second season premiere of "Oprah: Where Are They Now," an OWN update show that, well, updates viewers on past Oprah guests.
Season 1 of the series featured the late Rodney King's final interview and an update on Mary Jo Buttafuoco (these days she's a happy newlywed), and it also caught fans up with those 20 single Alaskan men from the 1989 "Oprah Winfrey Show" episode that became one of the most buzzed about and highest-rated episodes of all time. (Update: Even 23 years later, some of those eligible bachelors are still living single!)
Now, on the Season 2 "Where Are They Now" premiere, former basketball star Dennis Rodman returns to Oprah's nest 16 years after his last appearance with some surprising news: He's writing a children's book.
But basketball's bad boy also reveals that he doesn't "know how to be a father" to his own children. He's been estranged from his biological dad for most of his life, but Rodman says, "I'm not like my real father. He had all these damn kids and stuff like that. I've only got four kids."
Rodman also says he doesn't know how to show affection to his kids.
"My last wife said, 'You don't know how to hug your kids. You don't have no interest in your kids.' I said, 'Yes I do. I just don't know how to show it,'" he said. "[My mother] never hugged us. Never kissed us. I'm the same way, I guess." You can see a preview of Dennis Rodman's update here.
A press release for the new season of "Where Are They Now" reveals that upcoming episodes will feature retired pro boxer Mike Tyson, "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell, "Starsky and Hutch" actor Paul Michael Glaser, "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, and Trista and Ryan Sutter from "The Bachelorette."
Also on the roster for Season 2 of O's update show is reality TV villain Omarosa Manigault, who will likely need an update on her update in light of her recent showdown with La Toya Jackson on "Celebrity Apprentice."
Later in the season, Oprah will check in with families touched by tragedy, including the relatives of Chandra Levy, Terri Schiavo, Ryan White, and several Columbine families.
The new season of "Oprah: Where Are They Now" premieres on Tuesday, 3/19 at 10 PM ET on OWN.
