South Carolina's new governor won't grant Oprah Winfrey an interview she has been trying to get for a decade with a South Carolina woman who drowned her two sons in 1994.
On her show Wednesday, one of Winfrey's staffers said she has been trying to arrange an interview between the talk show host and Susan Smith for more than 10 years. Smith is serving a life sentence.
Winfrey suggested on the show that Gov.-elect Nikki Haley could change prison rules prohibiting media interviews.
Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said Thursday that Winfrey won't get her wish and Smith got enough attention with her original story saying she was carjacked.
Smith has not been interviewed since she was charged.
