In addition to performing, the “I’m Coming Out” singer and former Supremes legend will also sit down for her first-ever interview with all of her children and her grandson on Oprah’s February 25 episode.
Diana’s children who will be appearing on the show include Rhonda Ross Kendrick, “Girlfriends” actress Tracee Ellis Ross, Chudney Ross, Ross Arne Naess and Evan Ross. Diana’s first grandson, Raif Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, is her daughter Rhonda’s son with Rhonda’s husband, jazz musician Rodney Kendrick. He was born in August 2009.
The legend, whose career spans more than five decades, will take up the entire hour of Oprah’s show no doubt talking about going from her humble beginnings in Detroit to international superstar and icon.
She is currently on the “Now” tour.
Other guests to appear on Oprah this month include Celine Dion, who will visit on Feb. 21, and the winners at the Oscars, who will stop by her show, which tapes from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 28.
In related news, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has canceled his interview with Oprah over what he told the talk show host were “personal reasons,” per The Hollywood Reporter.
“We did a field trip with him. We had been shooting with Michael Vick. And the fact that he pulled out and all his people…” Oprah told THR. “We move on.”
Oprah wont’ have time to dwell though, the spot is now being filmed by David Arquette, his first post-rehab interview. The interview with David will air on Feb. 24.
