‘Color Purple’ Star Slams Oprah

Rae Dawn Chong will not be invited as a guest on Oprah’s ‘Behind the Scenes’ any time soon. The ‘Color Purple‘ star badmouthed Oprah in a scandalous radio interview with Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour.

Stopping short of calling Oprah a narcissist, Chong said, “The thing that’s really great about Oprah, that you can’t take away from her, is that she is a great brown noser. If you were in a room with her, she will pick the most powerful person and she will become best friends with them.”

Chong, who is half black, said Oprah would’ve been a field nigger because of her dark skin and homely looks. The 52-year-old Canadian-American played Harpo’s girlfriend alongside Oprah in ‘The Color Purple‘ (1985).

From Rhymeswithsnitch.com:

“The thing that’s really great about Oprah, that you can’t take away from her is that she is a great brown noser. If you were in a room with her, she will pick the most powerful person and she will become best friends with them.”

“When we worked with her the one thing about Oprah she was that fat chick that was the cheerleader or the wannabe cheerleader in school, that was the student council president, that was the best friends with the Principal, that was the volunteer nurse, she was that fat chick in school that did everything and everybody loved her. That’s Oprah…love me, love me love.”

“But the thing is you have to respect her, no matter how vile she is ultimately because she’s all about Oprah and she’s boring, but aside from that, you kinda gotta go Hello! Hats off! Like, you’ve done an amazing thing. You have actually shifted the DNA of the universe in terms of thinking of power structure. She took a woman… if you look at the way she looks…she looks like 60 years ago she would have been a housekeeper, luckily… She would not have been a house nigger she would have been a field nigger…So we have to give her props. No matter my personal vibe with her I gotta stop and say this woman is a miracle and I respect her and I say kudos to you.“

      I said it then, and I’ll say it now. The Color Purple tanked Rae Dawn Chong’s career. After Commando (with Ahnald) she was on her way up before she got all artsy and did this movie. De.railed. By the 90s, she was doing guest spots and b-movies. She’s still working, but, damn. I’d be bitter too.

      I’m just happy that Rae Dawn stood up to the almighty Oprah. Not everyone is afraid of being blacklisted.

      She stood up to her? Is that what we are going to call it? Saying she could have been a housekeeper, just 6 years ago and a house n**ger? is standing up to Oprah. Saying her success is a miracle because her size and shade of her skin…would have placed her where exactly?…..But this is standing up. This is nothing but an bitter bish rant run amuck. Who obviously failed to take her menopause meds. The fall out from this will be her most memorable roll since she last played the woman Oprah smacked.

      Rae Dawn spoke up…Exposing her insanity or her drinking problem. GTFOH #hatershangtogether.
