A couple of decades can go by, and it’s never too late to salvage a relationship and reunite with people you made history with.
No one can know that better than Oprah Winfrey.
In her new book, ‘Oprah: A Biography,’ scandal-mongering biographer Kitty Kelley offered many unconfirmed stories about Winfrey’s alleged dust-ups with cast members and the movie’s director Steven Spielberg.
The tantalizing tidbits provided context to what many believe has been a long-running feud with her co-star, the movie’s lead actress Whoopi Goldberg.
Goldberg, who was nominated for an Academy Award for ‘Purple‘ – along with co-stars Winfrey and Margaret Avery, has never sat down on Winfrey’s couch since then, and was noticeably absent at her big 2006 Legends Ball weekend festivities, where Winfrey & Co. celebrated great black women who contributed to the history of arts and culture. Even though Goldberg — at the time — was only one of two living female black actresses who won Academy Awards (Halle Berry was the other), she didn’t get an invite.
