Remember “Squeak” from “The Color Purple” and her infamous line, “Who ‘dis woman, Harpo?”
Or maybe you remember Rae Dawn Chong from “Soul Man”?
Either way, Rae Dawn Chong’s acting credits span over 30 years. From memorable roles, like “The Color Purple”, to not so memorable ones. Recently, Rae Dawn appeared on “Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour” and talked about how her personal relationship with Oprah Winfrey changed throughout the years. Apparently they went from being buddies, to Oprah hating her.
Here are a couple of interesting tidbits from the interview:
–“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.”
— “She’s so enormously insecure. If you wanna distill Oprah Winfrey down to like her most basic components. She wants to be beautiful.”
— “Imagine being [Oprah]. She has all of the world. All the power in the world … and she only wants something that is only chemical, purely impossible.”
— “The thing that’s really great about Oprah that you cant take away from her is that she’s a great brown-noser.”
Rae Dawn apparently didn’t mean all of those harsh words she had for Oprah, because shortly after the audio was released, an apology was made. In which of course she blames TMZ.
I’m sure Rae Dawn isn’t even on Oprah’s radar. Here’s a stadium full of seats for to have.
