Oprah Winfrey

Ripped By Ex Co-Star

'She Would Have Been a Field N**ger'

7/19/2013 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

11:00 AM PT
-- Rae Dawn Chong just released a video response on YouTube,  saying she meant the n-word as a compliment.

Oprah Winfrey
's former "Color Purple" co-star Rae Dawn Chong just UNLOADED on the talk show queen -- claiming O is a self-centered fat "biotch"  who would have been a "field n**ger" back in the slave days.

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 was "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 can't 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."

I will say this about Oprah and I have said it for years. Yes, she is very successful and has helped a lot of people but she also makes a living (mostly) off of other people's suffering and pain. You would think that someone like her, who is a multi-billionaire, BILLIONAIRE, would use some of her money to really help people out. Put your money where your mouth is, you know. How many of those billions are you going to take with you to the other side? NONE! Her show was shot in Chicago, probably one of the worst cities in this country for violence and poverty for blacks. With her power and money SHE COULD do something about it, in a big way. But does she? Hell no....I am sure she does some things but I've never heard about them and if she did do something amazing in Chicago for her own people, most of us would have probably heard of it by now. So I doubt she does. But she'll open a girl's school in South about in your own backyard? I think Oprah is a little bit of a fake and plays the "game" to a tee. Money ultimately has changed her...and I think that's why Chong was trying to really say. What a shame!

So RDC is saying she would have been in a house while O was out in the fields. Sounds like RDC would be happy to be in the slave days just to be able to watch that go down.

U know that is some serious bad juju..can only imagine what O did to her for hate like that.

Oprah Winfrey owes nothing to anybody. I'm just mad she is giving that low life Lindsey Lohan 2 million dollars for an interview.

If blacks disrespect their own race in such way, why are they expecting other races to not do the same? Same thing as - why can't women not respect eachother and have to treat each other like that - and then expect men to respect them?? What a ****. How mature Rae!

DAMN! What an awful and mean thing to say about someone. Oprah must've really pissed her off, what she wouldn't lend you money? Wouldn't call in favors for a movie shot? Wouldn't let you have any part of Own or her magazine? What could possibly has pissed off this heifer to say such ugly thing about another, even if it is Oprah?

I hate fake people, this lady was on Oprah talk show a few years ago for the Color Purple reunion. You sat there for that whole hour and acted like you and Oprah was cool. Why do her talk show if you had beef?

Not surprised. Something about Oprah has always struck me as being phony. There's no telling what happened to make RDC hate her so much.
