Divas At War?! Oprah Vs. Aretha!

| Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsOprah WinfreyWendy Williams


Uh-oh! We hope this isn't true!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Oprah Winfrey is "rip-roaring furious" at Aretha Franklin, because the iconic singer chose to give an exclusive interview to Wendy Williams instead of her!

The insider reveals that the Big O is "about as angry as can be…this is the final season of her show and she's been pushing to land all the big 'gets' out there. Oprah is embarrassed that Aretha chose Wendy."


Not many people would want to step on her toes, but we guess when you're as big a diva as Aretha, it really doesn't matter, now does it?


We'll take this info with a grain of salt, but if it's true, then this Wendy interview ought to be GOOD!

    Oprah gets down on her knees and worships at the alter of Queen Aretha and not the other way around. Aretha owes NOTHING to Oprah. If this story is true then she owes Aretha and Wendy a big apology for being a jealous bitch who doesn't always gets what she wants. Anyway Oprah should be more concerned with her tanking network then about who is interviewing who.

    She looks like Snuffleupagus

    The interview already happened ! It aired last week !

    That's just stupid if it IS true. Just coz she's Oprah doesn't mean everyone has to run to her to spill their life stories. How does she become default interviewer inspiring fear of angering of the gods if she is not appeased?
    I truly doubt she's all that concerned about it for real. Oprah probably thought "meh, fine, piss on her." and moved on to the next thing.

    Perhaps Aretha wanted to reserve her dignity and privacy.

    I would love to have a threesome with these two big mamas!!
    Smear in arethas body in with cream an lick it of while fucking operah in the ass with a huge dildo!
    My biggest dream…..

  7. 7

    I love Aretha Franklin and trust her judgment.

    It already aired, as stated by #3. It was meh. Wendy isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, & Aretha kinda played the Diva card. Who knows, maybe Aretha likes Wendy more. Oprah is really annoying & I for one will not be missing her.

    The sun does not rise and set for Oprah Winfrey. I get that she's been in the business for a long time, but that still doesn't mean that she's entitled to everything she wants. If this story is true, it is the National Enquirer!, then she needs to pull up her big girl panties and move on. She has a failing network to sort out.

    Ooops, did someone in Oprah's camp dropped the ball and let Aretha get away?
    Pots not tended tend to boil over.

    You moron. This interview already aired. Get with it.

  12. 12

    It has to be said.

    Oprah's ego has grown as big as her head.

    Fvck Oprah.

  13. 13

    well who cares what oprah wants…aretha is the queen of soul and has always been , no matter what oprah smochprah thinks or wants, or that psycho beyonce falling all over the place lmao that was hilarious…anyway …back to my point….beyonce disrespecting aretha calling tina turner the queen…wtf was that about….beyonce is a airhead anyway…who cares wht she thinks…dancing around like a dufus in leotards lmao thats hilarious….it would of been even funnier it she was wearign the leotard when she bounced off the steps all over the stage lol

    Perez, I wish you'd find a more up to date picture. Aretha's lost more than 80 pounds. As for this big "get" this is no surprise. When you're on the Goddess Oprah's show, you play by Oprah's rules, and she calls the shots. That's definitely not how Miss Aretha operates. Wendy Williams was probably so grateful for the chance to interview her, that she agreed to Aretha's rules. There are certain subjects Aretha will not discuss. She is a very private person. She's not going to get all confessional the way Oprah and her guests are. So good for Aretha, because I am honestly kind of tired of Orpah. I don't care if this is true or not. I'm glad Aretha diden't go on her show.

    Re: rickraton – Exactly!

  16. 16

    Good for Aretha…she gave Wendy a break. I think it is great.

  17. 17

    Re: penny1206 – Maybe Oprah is just tense.

  18. 18

    Aretha can do whatever she wants and that includes interviews. Sorry O but you can't get

  19. 19

    The only "get" Oprah obviously has is a giant box of doughnuts shoved into her fat face.

  20. 20

    Wow she looks like a huge turd.

    Oprah sounds like some friggen evil dictator or somethings. She's so annoying…

  23. 23

    It already aired. I dont know what your talkin about but i saw the interview last week. And i dont believe what this magazine. is saying. Oprah isnt a mean person, im pretty sure shes not mat at all. And Aretha probley went to Wendys show because Oprah has MILLIONS of viewers a day. Wendy doesnt have nearly that many So She went there to kinda just speak to a few people. Not half the world.

  24. 24

    Well these ladies both have two much class to have public drama so we'll probably never know but neither one of them is the one to mess with. ;-)

  25. 25

    Seriously. I cannot believe that anyone can believe ANYTHING after the words 'The National Enquirer.. ' and then when the word 'reports' comes after that. Well the word oxmoron springs to mind.

  26. 26

    Dear lord, she's not the god, and should have everything she wants. I'm glad Aretha did it her way. Hooray freedom.

    One would think, with all her Diva-licousness and all her money that she could, just one time, find a dress that both FITS her and FLATTERS her. All women are beautiful, espcially when they can sing like Aretha can….. but her continued sloppyness in clothing choices is so sad. The styles aren't tertible, but the fact that her clothes never seem to fit her makes her look clownish and sloppy. Call a tailor Aretha…. Show the big girls how it's done…. R - E - S - P - E - C - T.

    Re: rickraton – If she wants to preserve her dignity she should find a good stylist and a good tailor and show the big girls how it's done. She always looks like she buys her clothes at a ghetto JC Penny outlet store.

    Oprah is just pissed not everyone will kiss her ass and do what she wants them to do. Good for Aretha, I'm glad she picked Wendy instead.

  30. 30

    The world does not revolve around Bitch Oprah. I saw the interview an enjoyed it very much. Go Wendy!!!!!!!

  31. 31

    Of course she would choose Wendy over Oprah, Wendy and Aretha have a lot more GHETTO in common!

    what a great web site
