On her new cable channel, Oprah Winfrey is giving shows to two regulars on her daytime talker: the guy who helps you get things organized and the woman who helps you get it on.

The TV queen on Thursday unveiled the lineup for OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network, the cable channel she'll launch next year. It will replace Discovery Health.

Among its offerings:

Dr. Laura Berman, the sex therapist and former Sun-Times columnist, hosting a Chicago-based talk show.

• De-clutter expert Peter Walsh cleaning up people's messy lives with his own team of specialists.

• "Excellent Adventure," following a celebrity and his or her best friend (hello, Gayle King!) as they share an unforgettable experience.

• A series of investigative reports by Lisa Ling, another "Oprah Winfrey Show" regular.

• A whole show profiling people Winfrey admires.

• A documentary series following former competitive surfer Izzy Paskowitz and his family.

There also will be movies and reruns of other channels' shows. A Web site, My Own.com, is up and running.

I thought I'd share, one Oprah-phile to another:
On 5/8/08, I mailed an audition packet to Oprah's OWN address in LA; in it I pitched ideas for her network. Since then-a little over one year-I have mailed about 8 packets of information that include 'thank yous' to people at OWN that have been helpful as well as two ideas that are so Oprah friendly.
I got a call today from OWN. The good news is one of my two ideas is being considered-the bad, the other idea is similar to one they are already implementing.
I'm getting closer and will not stop until I have an interview or they tell me to go away!
So far, so good.

Hey just wonding om when is oprah going to get marryed?
