Oprah: 'Mr. Zimmerman…I would love to talk to him'
Extra’s A.J Calloway interviewed Oprah Winfrey and they discussed a few issues including the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, her interview with Bobbi Kristina and the decision to axe The Rosie Show. Oprah is appalled by the death of the slain teen Trayvon Martin and desires to speak with his shooter George Zimmerman. The Urban Daily reports:
Oprah sat down with Extra’s A.J. Calloway to touch on a number of events going on in this country and in her own career with respect to her latest venture, OWN. On the death of Trayvon Martin, which continues to be a hot button issue in the news cycle, Oprah said, “It is a tragedy and it is a shame that we’re sitting here 33 days later and there hasn’t been an arrest, or questioning of what actually happened. It’s a tragedy and it is a shame and we all know it.” She added that Trayvon’s killer, George Zimmerman is someone she’d like to speak to. “Mr. Zimmerman… I would love to talk to him,” she says.
Oprah also talked about her widely discussed interview with Bobbi Kristina Brown. Apparently it almost didn’t happen. She revealed: “I was on the plane leaving New York… the producer says we can’t find Bobbi Kristina… and we don’t know if she’s going to do an interview. And I said, ‘By the time I land I’m hoping you would have found her.’”
Once Oprah arrived to home of Pat Houston, Bobbi Kristina had re-emerged. Winfrey said, “When I saw her, the reason I didn’t sit down [with Bobbi Kristina] is because I was told that she didn’t really want to sit down, so I just used that moment.”
