Oprah knows how to boost those OWN network ratings. Leading up to her suspenseful interview with Rihanna on Next Chapter this Sunday, a teaser was released of Rihanna crying while explaining how she felt after the infamous 2009 incident with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. The video made headlines reigniting the conversation around if the two were still in love and if everyone should forgive Chris now. An emotional Riri said she lost her best friend, but as angry as she was she wanted to protect him. “It became a circus and I felt protective. I felt like the only person they hate right now is him,” she told the queen of talk shows.
Her honest tearful response begs the question: what does Chris Brown think? According to Hollywood Life, a source close to Breezy tells the website, “Chris saw the video clip. Of course he saw it, how do you think he feels? He feels horrible he did that.” Who this source could possibly be will likely remain a mystery. He continues, “Watching [Rihanna’s interview with Oprah] made him realize he made a big mistake and he’s been paying for it ever since. He’s working hard, in the studio, dancing, doing everything he can to rebuild his name and career and I think he been successful in doing all that. Y’all should be talking about his road to recovery and how he’s been a man and made s–t right. He and Ri are cool, more cool than anyone will know. She forgave the [boy] the minute that s–t went down, so what that say about their relationship?”
We think this source close to Chris may be standing in the unemployment line soon. Sunday we will proudly plop on the couch in front of the tube to tune in to what’s going to be a real “get down conversation.”
