First of all, while your still struggling Oprah is still living doing her thing.. The nerve of her Co-Star who played in the Color Purple with her Rae Don Chong calling mother Oprah all kinds of blasphemous names.
Rae Dawn — who’s part black — appeared on “Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour” and talked about how her personal relationship with O went from good to really REALLY bad back in the 80s.
RDC says Oprah wa s “lovely” to her back on the set of Purple in 1985 … but when Rae moved on to her next movie, “Commando,” that’s when she says O became “a total biotch.”
“I starred in Commando. And she just wasn’t having me. She’s competitive. She didn’t like me. She just wasn’t having me.”
It’s clear, Rae doesn’t like O either — ’cause for the next several minutes of the interview, she ranted on and on about how much she hates Winfrey — and stooped so low, she even took shots at her appearance and invoked slave imagery.
“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.”
RDC continued the attack for several minutes. Among the lowlights:
– “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 concluded the interview with a compliment wrapped in yet another pitiful attack — “No matter how vile she is, you kinda gotta go, ‘hello hats off’ like, you’ve done an amazing thing you have actually shifted the DNA of the universe.”
