LATEST: Oprah Winfrey's desire to act again has been met with open arms - the creator of Desperate Housewives is now offering her a role.

The billionaire talk show host, who scored an OSCAR nomination for her role in the acclaimed movie The Color Purple, had all but quit acting after the poor reception of her 1998 film BELOVED.

But after acting in a Desperate Housewives skit - written for her by the series' creator MARC CHERRY - on her chat show, Winfrey, said, "I thought I was done with my acting days, but I loved being a part of the Desperate Housewives so much that I'm thinking I might do something else soon."

And now Cherry assures, "I'll write anything she wants."
