Exclusive: Oprah: “I’ve Never Called Anybody A B*tch”

Besides refusing to use the N-Word, Oprah Winfrey also doesn’t use the B-word.

HipHollywood sat down with Lady O for the press junket for Lee Daniel’s The Butler where she revealed that until muttering the word during a pivotal scene in the film, she had never used it before.

“I don’t think I’ve ever used the B-word,” said Winfrey. “I’ve never called anybody a B*tch my whole life, so it was kinda fun.”

To be exact, Winfrey, who plays Gloria Gaines, calls Yaya Alafia’s character Carol “a trifling ass b*tch” during a dinner table scene in the film.

But while Winfrey admits it felt good to say, she still doesn’t condone the use of the N-word, and hopes this film helps African Americans understand their history and where they come from.

“In order to continue to move forward in life you have to know who you are,” explains Winfrey. “You have to literally have a root and a foundation of knowing … and to celebrate and to honor.”

Lee Daniels’ The Butler is in theaters August 16th.

Fox’s The Four: Battle For Stardom will never have a loser, at least according to panelist and show creator, Diddy.

Every week, singers around the country will fight for stardom by doing all they can to stay in the top four of the singing competition show. But while some might get sent home, Diddy tells HipHollywood that there are “no losers in this situation.”

He explained while at last week’s taping, “the people that lose actually win because people don’t agree with what goes on, so now they have a platform.”

The music is not only out of this world, but it’s also just straight up fun. Host Fergie unveiled to HH, “Your heart beats racing, but we also can really laugh at ourselves and have a good time and be idiots.”

She added, “There’s a good amount of we care care that much to be intense and serious and be invested and want to stand behind these artists; but also at the same time we all like to have a good time.”

Panelist DJ Khaled is all about the jovial antics and banter, but he doesn’t want “nobody taking my kindness for weakness.” He told us, “I’m going to give you the keys and let you know how I feel.”

The show is on it’s way to becoming a world renowned phenomenon. Diddy, however, would like to see one thing. “More rappers,” he told HipHollywood. “Rapers don’t have a relationship with shows like this so there’s not that database. So we are doing something original.”

The Four airs on Thursday night’s at 8pm on Fox.
