Well it aint President Obama! In another Oprah first, the media mogul has chosen a man to join her on the cover of her O magazine…Dr. Mehmet Oz!

Oprah said “The January issue is all about firsts. I met Dr. Oz in 2003 as his first guest on Second Opinion – a medical series he and his wife, Lisa, created for the Discovery Channel. Now here we are, over eight years later. … What can I say? I adore Dr. Oz. As we toast to a new year and encourage readers to take the first step toward a happier, healthier life, who better to help us get on the right path than my dear friend and America’s doctor, Dr. Oz.”

Some peeps are upset claiming it should’ve been Obama. However peeps close to Oprah’s camp say she chose Dr. Oz because he’s making her a lot of money right now. We all know Dr. Phil’s ratings have fallen off and the OWN network is struggling but Dr. Oz’s ratings are some of the highest in daytime talk shows.

Basically, Oprah is trying to sell magazines & Dr. Oz is hot right now!

There you have it! The January issue of O hits newsstands Dec. 15th.

Do you think Dr. Oz was the right pick?
