Oprah kicked off 2012 with the launch of her new primetime show, "Oprah's Next Chapter." The two-hour special premiered Sunday night on OWN, and featured an extensive interview with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler at his home in New Hampshire.
Tyler sat down with Oprah to talk about love, regret, sex, lead singer syndrome, and more. Oprah asked Tyler if he was "a good person to be married to," and if he was "irresponsible." Tyler admitted that he "abandoned" his first wife and daughter, Mia, to go on tour. "My heart is still broken that I did that," Tyler said of leaving his first wife and daughter.
Tyler also gave Oprah a tour of his New Hampshire home on Lake Sunapee. The two ventured out into the woods, which Tyler called his "sacred place." They observed "the stillness," and raved about the beauty found in the middle of the woods. "This is beauty to me," Oprah said as she felt a moss-covered rock.
With "Oprah's Next Chapter," the queen of daytime brings viewers into the homes of public figures and private families. Upcoming shows, which will only be an hour long, include Oprah sitting down with a Hasidic Jewish family who has never watched television, having a sleepover with the Food Network's Paula Deen, and touring Skywalker Ranch with George Lucas.
Watch two videos from "Oprah's Next Chapter" below. The first video, which features Tyler talking about sex and regret, includes a quick exchange about orgasms. In the second video, the two venture into the woods.
