Madge wants Oprah on kabbala team

Will Oprah join the kabbala cabal?

Madonna has been talking up the mystical form of Judaism to the already-spiritual talk-show queen for two years, in hopes that her fellow icon could help bring the Artist Occasionally Known as Esther’s belief system to mainstream America, according to our source.

The U.K.-based pop star has sent Oprah books and E-mails about kabbala, a spy tells us, but Angela De Paul in Oprah’s office told us she wasn’t aware that her boss had received any of the red-string propaganda.

In a country where conservative Christians have shown their might in recent years, an endorsement of kabbala by Winfrey, who has 9 million loyal viewers, would have a powerful effect. Her seal of approval has boosted everything from book sales to her own upcoming Broadway musical, “The Color Purple.”

Madonna knows that, and that’s why she’s chosen Oprah’s show for her first interview since she took a tumble off a horse, our source says.

Her Madgesty’s reportedly going to let Oprah bring cameras into her British country manor to see how the other 0.000001% lives, and she’ll also perform two numbers from her upcoming CD, “Confessions on a Dancefloor.”

For those who crave more, the diva’s designing her own iPod, loaded with every recording she’s ever made, and – call out the New York faithful – she’s planning a concert here for MTV, sources tell us.
