Discovery Communications, Inc.(NEW YORK) -- Oprah Winfrey will make her second appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday, Aug. 1.  Her appearance comes nearly eight years after her first visit to the CBS show, which coincided with the red carpet premiere of the Broadway musical The Color Purple.

Winfrey stars in the upcoming White House drama The Butler, which opens nationwide on Aug. 16.

Winfrey’s 2005 appearance helped end a feud between the two stars that began around 1989 after she appeared on Letterman's old NBC Late Night program when the show visited Chicago and felt the host had rallied the audience against her.

In a sit down on OWN's Oprah's Next Chapter that aired this past January, Letterman admitted that he had played up the perceived tension between the two to get laughs out of the audience.

Winfrey told Letterman the rowdy audience made her feel uncomfortable: "It felt so uncomfortable to me that I didn't want to have that experience again.  That's really all it was for me.  I just didn't want to be in that uncomfortable experience."/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>

Letterman apologized for the incident, though Winfrey said it was unnecessary.

Back in 2010, Letterman appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and confessed that he also pulled a prank on Winfrey in 1989 when he spotted the former talk show host and Steadman Graham at a restaurant and tricked a waiter into believing that Winfrey had agreed to pick up his table's check./>/>
