UPDATED: Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey, what are you two tricksters up to?
A very brief promo Thursday night on NBC alluded to Ellen's O The Oprah Magazine cover being unveiled on the next episode of "Ellen" — "next" meaning today, Friday.
Ellen wasn't the only one tweeting about a meeting. A nearly simultaneous tweet on Oprah's verified Twitter account seemed to acknowledge that something is going on.
Wonder what's up? I'm getting an "announcey" vibe.
But there's one problem — Michigan Avenue and which cross street?
It ain't a small street, last time we checked.
Maybe the surprise is something so big that it's visible no matter where a person stands on Michigan Avenue?
