Talk-show Tango Feb. 21-25: Celine Dion and her twins on Oprah

In television on 02/20/2011 at 9:50 pm

News this week is what is on Oprah — our very own Celine Dion and her twins — and what is not on Oprah, Michael Vick having last week cancelled his scheduled Feb. 24 appearance. “Personal reasons” were cited in a statement issued by the people around the NFL player who served 18 months in a federal prison for his involvement in a dog-fighting operation. The interview was to have covered his return to the NFL, his conviction and his public service work with the Humane Society. However, animal-rights group PETA wondered, on its website, if Vick hadn’t instead been scared off by the fear of a tough grilling.
