Oprah on Rihanna, Chris Brown Reunion: 'It's Really Okay' [VIDEO]
"I Have No Judgment About It," The Big O Says
Oprah Winfrey, where are you when we need you to represent our collective outrage? Remember how upset you were at James Frey and that whole book debacle? Muster some of that up now, please.
Instead, Oprah says she has no judgment about the fact that her recent OWN network interview guest Rihanna may be back together with the man punished for beating her, Chris Brown.

"I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it," Winfrey said in an interview with Extra.
"I have no judgment about it. That's why I can sit there and have such a great time with her, because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever. If that's how you choose to lead your life, that's really okay."
What?! It's okay?! It's okay, and you have no judgment, about a woman reuniting with a man who beat her, and who, since then, has only given more examples of how he clearly has anger issues?
What the frick, Oprah?

Winfrey, who told Extra she's not totally convinced the rumors of the Rihanna/Brown reunion are true, sat for an exclusive one-on-one with the pop diva last month.
"You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big wide open heart," Winfrey told the celeb gossip series. "She was in the space of forgiveness. And … she learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown … exactly what she needed to learn from her father."
During her OWN chat with Winfrey, Rihanna revealed her father, Ronald Fenty, physically abused her mother. She said she has learned to forgive him for that, prompting Oprah's comparison.
Ronald Fenty has also publicly stated that he forgives Chris Brown for what he did to his daughter, so … yeah, it maybe shouldn't come as a surprise that Rihanna would think being with Brown is a good idea.
