Chong hit headlines on Friday (19Jul13) after comparing the legendary Tv host to a slave during an expletive-ridden interview she conducted with America's Matty P's Radio Happy Hour.

The slam shocked the media, but it appears to have left O herself unfazed.
Oprah Winfrey is an expert in conflict resolution – and she’ll need every last bit of those skills to win back former co-star Rae Dawn Chong. The actress starred with Oprah in The Color Purple and apparently, everything was fine while the two were working together. But once she moved on to Commando, O’s attitude apparently changed and so did Rae Dawn Chong. The actress has been hanging on to so much resentment that she let it all go in one massive rant… and it certainly wasn’t pretty. Chong claimed that Oprah was a self-centered fat "biotch" who would have been a "field n**ger" back in the slave days.”
The Forbes billionaire was slammed by a former colleague.
Chong, who is black herself, unleashed the torrent of anger on "Matty P's Radio Happy Hour" – and she didn’t stop at the slur either. She explained: "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."
Rae Dawn Chong - OH NO SHE DIDN'T.
Rae Dawn Chong has launched a blistering attack on her 'Color Purple' co-star Oprah Winfrey, unloading on the Queen of daytime television in an audio recording from her appearance on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour. The audio - up at TMZ.com - is an eye-opening insight into Chong's feelings on her former colleague.
Rae Dawn starts out by saying Oprah was "lovely" to be around on the set of Purple in 1985, though became "a total biotch" by the time she had moved onto her next movie, Commando.
"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," said Chong.

Commando, first released 22 years ago, has the simplest of premises: Arnold Schwarzenegger kills bad guys in every way imaginable for about 90 minutes. That's it. There isn't a subplot about reforming veterans' benefits or an extensive introduction into Latin America's political climate. Commando is one of the best arguments available for the action movie as pure entertainment.

The Visit is a prime example of a movie that has clearly been agonized over and loved, but to virtually no ultimate effect; writer/director/producer Jordan Walker Pearlman is so obviously enamored with the material he can't see the forest for the trees. Adapted from a play, The Visit still has that boxed-in feeling, with virtually all of the action taking place in the visiting room of the prison where Alex (Hill Harper) is incarcerated. Wrongly so, we are led to believe.
