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.

    I don’t co-sign anything this drugged bitter woman is saying.

    But the part where she says: “The thing that’s really great about Oprah that you can’t take away from her is that she’s a great brown-noser, she – she knows – she’ll go into – if you where 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, 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, you know, that was the co- volunteer nerd, she was the fat chick in school that did everything and everyone loved her.”

    Body shaming bitter bs aside. She had an odd point about a kind of person who operates like this. I don’t think Oprah is this kind of person BTW. Oprah is obviously very intelligent hard working and talented.

    But I have seen and known people like this. They don’t advance on ability or talent because they don’t really have it. But they DO have the ability to blow smoke up the right person/people’s asscrack. I get that this is a useful talent, playing the game, so to speak, but I think it only takes a person so far in life and they often use their talents to get other, more talented hardworking people, to do the work for them. They approach the most talented and powerful, and cultivate friendships/relationships with them and then get these people to do for them.

    They can be a good ally or the worst annoyance. It depends on their ethics and most importantly their ego. If you run into one with a big ego and no or a mediocre ability to match, they can be a annoying to a nightmare to deal with.

    I don’t begrudge them the success they have by using this tactic. I don’t really respect it because I prefer to advance on merit and my own abilities But I respect that you have to use what you got to get where you need to go. I view this kind of person the same way I view a person who sucked and screwed their way to the top. I’m in awe of the fact that a seemingly worthless talent can take them so far, but I also find it distasteful and I myself would not do it.
