Ron Swanson's First Wife: Oprah?

On Parks and Rec, we've met Tammy #2, Ron Swanson's second wife, a couple of times. Played memorably by Nick Offerman's actual wife, Megan Mullalley, she's an amazing character and it's always great to witness the whirlwind of destruction that she brings to Ron's life. But Ron's first wife, Tammy #1, is someone we've only heard whispers about. Apparently, she is so terrifying that even the ferocious Tammy #2 trembles at the sound of her name. And who could play such a character? Well, if Nick Offerman has his way, it'll be Oprah. Here's what he told The Huffington Post:

We're going to find out who Ron's first ex-wife Tammy is, and I'm excited to find out why Tammy Two is scared shitless of Tammy. We're trying to start a campaign to get Oprah to play Tammy One. I think Oprah would be the only, she's the only person we can think of that might be intimidating to Megan Mullally. It would be so good.

That would really be something, wouldn't it? And hey, who the hell knows what Oprah is doing with herself these days now that her show is over. Hanging out with Gail in a swimming pool filled with hundred-dollar bills, I'm sure. Come on, Oprah, let's make this happen.
