Tina Fey, Oprah Winfrey

Dreams really do come true, and don't let anyone tell you differently!

Just two weeks ago, while discussing some dream casting options for her NBC comedy 30 Rock, Tina Fey told reporters, "I still want Oprah to play my best friend...and I don't know what I need to do to make that happen."

Well, as of today, it might happen. Chicagoland sources who were at the taping of The Oprah Show starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for Baby Mama just wrote in to tell us this fantastic news:

According to members of the live audience, during a commercial break, Oprah said she had heard Tina wanted to be her best friend and asked whether Tina meant in real life or on the show. When Tina said "both!" Oprah said, "Have your people call my people."

Oprah then said that she was "definitely interested" and would love to appear on the show, to which Tina gestured to the people in the audience, to the effect of "You heard it!"

So...Tina Fey and Oprah Winfrey? Together? If this happened, I would never ask the TV gods for anything ever again, because...seriously! Best boost ever. If Britney can lift How I Met Your Mother's ratings by 1 million, just think what freaking Oprah could do for the Rock. (That said, can we get her on Friday Night Lights and Reaper, too?)
