I liked the Magic Johnson and Arsenio, and Spike interviews, mostly because Oprah let them talk. None of them said anything new or earth shattering, but they were decent enough interviews.
LOVED the Babyface story about him using a fake adult Jimmy Stewart voice to get to interview Michael and the Jackson Five when he was Kenny was just 13. THAT was funny.
As for Spikes sit-down, I wonder if Oprah really would have let him know Tyler had told him about his visit, if he hadn't called her out on it. Or would she have let him answer......seen what he said, and if he told the same version as Tyler, and then either hit him with well "Tyler told me who called".... OR "Tyler told a different story"...OR just in her own head make a note of it and said, "uhmn, right."
The MORE upfront thing to do WOULD have been to say, first, when asking about it..."you know Tyler Perry told me you called him" and see what Spike might have to say about it.
The way she didn't it we'll never know is she would have said she'd already known all about it. The way she did it -- It was clearly a set up question.
