Oprah was in tears while discussing her longstanding feud with actress Whoopi Goldberg.
"I said, 'What are you talking about?' " says Oprah. "She says, 'All these years, you know, we've been disconnected and I just want to know, did I do something?' I said, 'All these years I thought you were mad at me.' "
Rumors of a running feud have dogged Oprah and Goldberg since they made The Color Purple back in 1985 – 25 years ago.
The rumors were fueled in 2006 when Goldberg was noticeably absent from Oprah's Legends Ball, which brought together many notable African-American women.
Now they are putting it all behind them. It turns out the rift boiled down to a simple misunderstanding.
"So, you weren't mad at me," says Oprah.
"No," replies Goldberg.
"Why did you think I was mad at you?" she asks.
"I don't know. I just guess 'cause people kept saying you were," Goldberg explains.
Goldberg appears on Oprah's show to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Color Purple with the rest of the cast.
