Chaka Khan And BeBe Winans In The Color Purple

Fantasia Barrino just finished her run on Broadway in the Oprah Winfrey produced, "The Color Purple" and Chaka Khan and BeBe Winans just joined the cast...
So this past Wednesday on Chaka and BeBe's opening night, Oprah showed up as a triplet with her best friend Gayle and Newark City Mayor Cory Booker. They say a lot of celebs came out; Diddy's mama Janice Combs, Patti LaBelle, Robert DeNiro, his wife Grace Hightower, Denise Rich... Anyway, today's Page Six reported that, "In Act 2, when the two leading ladies find happiness, fulfillment and financial success after becoming lesbian lovers (in a bathtub), Oprah's eyes welled with tears." Hmmm. Was there a spotlight on Oprah while she was sitting in the audience? Did she cry at any other part? Or just the lesbian parts? They just wrote that so we would whisper about Oprah's sexuality. Don't fall for it y'all.
