In the summer of 2010, Oprah and Whoopi met once again at Hollywood producer Tyler Perry's home. Oprah describes their chance meeting in Tyler's kitchen as a divine moment. "I'm going to try not to cry," Oprah says. "[Whoopi] said: 'Can I just ask you something? Did I do something to you? All these years, we've been disconnected, and I just want to know, did I do something?'"
But Oprah says she always assumed that the opposite was true. "It's crazy," Oprah says. "So I thought: 'You think I'm mad at you? I thought you were mad at me.'"
Whoopi says she always thought Oprah was mad at her because people kept repeating these rumors. "[I] don't say much of everything, and when I do say it, I say it out where everybody can hear it," Whoopi says. "I don't hide my stuff. I don't play that."
Now that their rumored "feud" is settled, Oprah offers advice to anyone dealing with a similar situation. "If there's somebody who you think is upset with you or they think you're upset with them, you should just call them," she says.
