Oprah dating a white man
James says he never dreamed he would have so much success.
Oprah also plans to ask Chelsea about her talk show, her new boyfriend, millionare André Balazs, who, surprisingly, happens to not be black, her difficult relationship with her father, and how getting a DUI at 21 launched her stand-up career.
Something New has also sparked discussions about black women who choose to date outside their race. Sanaa, a Tony-nominated actress who attended the Yale School of Drama, says the movie has a universal message that applies to all types of relationships. Not only is Something New making audiences cheer, it's also making history.
Sanaa tells Oprah that this is the first studio film to be directed by a black woman (Sanaa Hamri), produced by a black woman (Stephanie Allain), starred in by a black woman (Sanaa Lathan) and written by a black woman (Kriss Turner).
In Dark Girls, hip-hop author and journalist Soren Baker, a white man who's married to an African-American woman, describes his early attraction to women of all races—and shares his father's reaction.
Plus, another man in an interracial relationship discusses his wife's skin tone.
Can’t say this special will be one on most of our radars but maybe Oprah will call Chelsea out on the carpet the way she does her guests.
