It's Oprah like you've never seen her before! Veteran talk show host Oprah Winfrey will find herself on the other side of the questioning when she sits down with Andy Cohen for the first time on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Aug. 15, Us Weekly can exclusively reveal. 

The primetime queen will face some tough questions from the Bravo TV host, akin to those that Cohen has asked previous guests, including media maven Martha Stewart and former boy bander Nick Lachey, when she sits down to chat about her role in Lee Daniels' The Butler.

On June 26, Cohen asked Stewart if she had ever had a one-night stand, to which the home decor pro responded "yes." When Cohen asked if Stewart had ever "taken a dip in the lady pond," however, Stewart gave a deadpan "no," though she did admit to sexting.

Lachey similarly let slip a few candid answers during his own stop by WWHL in May, joking about his ex-father-in-law Joe Simpson. When asked what he liked best about being free of ex Jessica Simpson's dad, the singer couldn't resist getting in a jab.

"The best thing about not having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law," Lachey said, "is [that] I don't have go play grab-ass under the table on Easter Sunday."

Winfrey, 59, will also be making another notable return to the talk show circuit as a guest on David Letterman's late-night show on Aug. 1, only the second time she has done so since her initial appearance eight years ago.
