Did Beyonce Give Kim Kardashian the Cold Shoulder?

Rihanna Oprah Special: RiRi Says She Still Loves Chris Brown, Stomach Drops When She Sees Him

Rihanna‘s one-on-one with talk show doyenne Oprah Winfrey for ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ focused on her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Most of the preview clips focused on RiRi crying while recounting her love for him (as opposed to her memories of the beating he handed to her), which was a smart strategy to pull viewers in.

But the most striking thing about the chat was the vulnerability. Ri has put up a hard, super sexy, tough girl shell for much of the past few years, but Opes took a hammer and broke down those walls. For the first time in a long time, RiRi was real, not just this unattainable, ice cold pop star.
