Comments Off on Oprah Finally Speaks Out On Paula Deen Controversy

oprah and deenOprah Winfrey finally spoke out about the series of unfortunate events that plagued her friend, the butter-loving queen of southern cooking, Paula Deen.

“In the very first days I tried to reach her and then I decided to stay out of it as I saw it blowing up,” Winfrey, 59, tells Entertainment Tonight. “In time she will be fine. For me, it all just felt kind of sad.”

Winfrey believes that people need to let the “dust settle” before the two can have a “real conversation” about racism in today’s world. The 66-year-old Deen was subsequently fired by the Food Network and lost multiple endorsement deals in the process.Until recently, Winfrey had remained silent on her friend’s latest controversy.

When asked to comment about Deen during an interview with Extra, Winfrey laughed but declined to say anything more about the disgraced TV personality who she befriended back in 2012. “Oh my god! I don’t have anything to do with Paula Deen,” she insisted. “She is not the first white lady to use the N-word! Good lord!”

Winfrey herself has experienced racism in the past, but chooses to rise over them than letting it bring her down.

“Nobody in their right mind is going to call me the N-word. You know, you see those fools on Twitter sometime say ridiculous things. But nobody in their right mind is going to do that to my face, because true racism is being able to have power over somebody else,” Winfrey explains. “So that doesn’t happen to me that way.”

The 40-year old blond actress topped the magazine’s annual list for the Most Beautiful Woman.

Her perfect hair, charming blue eyes, nice smile, and sexy body all contribute to the actress’s beauty.

According to Paltrow, she honestly thought that someone was playing joke on her. “I had to reread the e-mail three times. I was like, ‘This can’t be true, I’ve developed dyslexia — I’m not reading this right.’ It’s a very iconic cover in American culture, so it’s just amazing,” she said.

Paltrow told the magazine that around the house, she’s usually in jeans and t-shirt, and does not wear any makeup. She said, “I feel my most beautiful when I am truly myself. Meaning, when I accept exactly where I am in time and space, and I’m not judging myself in any way, and I feel that I have the peace that comes with loving yourself and all of your flaws.”
