Father Alberto Cutie to be next talk show star Oprah Winfrey?

Washington: Just weeks after TV mogul Oprah Winfrey stepped down from her 25-year-run as the ultimate talk show star, all are eager to know who will fill the void.

Some are hailing a former Roman Catholic priest, Father Alberto Cutie, as the one to fill the gap.

Cutie hit headlines in 2009 when he was photographed cavorting with a woman on a Miami beach. He soon left the Roman Catholic Church in the name of pursuing the woman he loved, but wished to continue serving God as a married man.

Now the 42-year-old family man is getting ready to help Americans with his daily single-topic talk show ‘Father Albert.’

And as far as the comparisons to Winfrey go, Cutie considers it a great compliment.

“If you look at the 25 years of Oprah’s show, they really have been self-help shows, shows where people have learned to live a better life,” Fox News quoted him as saying.

“I think it’s a compliment, because I really believe what we do on our show is to help people with their struggles and dilemmas, with a different approach than what Ms. Winfrey took on, but we certainly do want the results to be that people are living their best lives,” he added.
