The Color Purple
Jesus be a publicist! Rae Dawn Chong has released a video to clarify the comments she made against Oprah Winfrey. Chong, who starred alongside Winfrey in The Color Purple, made headlines when she appeared on Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour trashing O and then claiming,
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*****.
Jealousy truly is an ugly thing. Oprah Winfrey's on-screen rival from The Color Purple went on a radio program and royally trashed the media icon, stooping so low as to call her a field n*****.
Rae Dawn Chong—who no one has heard from since the 80's—ripped The Mighty O on Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour. Here's an excerpt:
"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."
Jesus in a manger! I always knew if Tyler Perry had the opportunity to get his hands on The Color Purple, he would somehow have that gun-toting Granny Madea in there. Well, the multi-hyphenated phenom got his recently chance, in a manner of speaking.
To promote Perry’s shows, Love Thy Neighbor and The Haves and Have Nots coming to OWN, Oprah Winfrey slipped back into her famous Sofia role from The Color Purple, and Perry transformed himself back into his breakout character. Winfrey revealed the picture on Twitter and stated:
We had a real LOL good time with this. #SophiaMeetsMadea tomorrow.
