Oprah to return to the Letterman show

Oprah Winfrey will visit "Late Show with David Letterman" for the first time in eight years, CBS announced Thursday.

Her return, which will take place Thursday, marks her second visit to the show -- the first was in 2005 when she promoted the Broadway musical "The Color Purple," which she produced, the Los Angeles Times reports.

It was a historic TV moment that seemed to signal a burying of the hatchet after a 16-year feud -- apparently the product of a 1989 dine and ditch tab, which was later compounded with Letterman's infamous Uma Thurman-Oprah joke as Academy Awards host in 1995.

It's a feud that Winfrey implied was all in Letterman's head when she appeared on his show.

Winfrey is heading to the "Late Show" once more to get the word out about her upcoming film "Lee Daniels' The Butler." She stars as Gloria Gaines, wife of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), who served as a White House butler.

Meanwhile, Winfrey's OWN network said Thursday that her previously announced interview with Lindsay Lohan will air Aug. 18.
