Now here’s something to talk about.

The Daily Express in London and the NY Post reported Monday that Jennifer Aniston was in talks to come back to television as a talk-show host.

The reports said that the ‘Friends’ actress was on board to host a weekly show on Oprah’s soon-to-be launched network, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network.

Aniston’s rep tells US Weekly that the story is “absolutely false.”

According to the Daily Express, Aniston got the idea from her new bestie, Chelsea Handler, and her show ‘Chelsea Lately.’ A source told the publication, “Jen became fascinated with the format after spending time with Chelsea. When she saw Oprah, she mentioned that it would be fun to do a chat show and Oprah seized the moment and suggested they front one together for her new network [OWN].”

The source added that Jen “absolutely wants to do it.”

If Aniston were looking for a new career path (unlike her highly coveted lustrous mane, her box-office receipts are lackluster), Oprah’s new network would to be the perfect fit. The news release that announced the network’s arrival this year describes it as a “new multi-platform media venture designed to entertain, inform and inspire people to live their best lives.”
