Oprah Winfrey is definitely one of the world’s most powerful and influential women, but is she really nothing more than a brown-nosing snob? While Oprah Winfrey certainly doesn’t strike us as that type of lady, one of her former co-workers, Rae Dawn Chong insists that she is!
We knew that Rae Dawn Chong and Oprah Winfrey co-starred in the movie The Color Purple, but who knew that Chong hated Winfrey? In a recent interview, Rae Dawn Chong went on a massive rant about her former co-star, blasting Oprah. According to TMZ, during a recent radio interview, Chong explained how her relationship went from good to bad with Winfrey back in the 80′s and she still hates Oprah to this day.
Rae Dawn Chong insists that while she and Oprah were cool during filming of The Color Purple, things took a horrible turn when Chong was cast in Commando, due to Oprah’s competitiveness. From there, Chong continued to blast Oprah, stating: “She’s so enormously insecure. If you want to distill Oprah Winfrey down to like her most basic components. She wants to be beautiful,” adding: “The thing that’s really great about Oprah that you can’t take away from her is that she’s a great brown-noser.”
And gets worse, Rae Dawn Chong also explained of Winfrey: “If you look at the way Oprah looks, she looks like 60 years ago she would have been a house keeper luckily. She would have not been a house n**ger she would have been a field n**ger.”
Needless to say, Chong is still not a fan of Oprah’s, and likely never will be.
