Rihanna and Chris Brown, you have a supporter in Oprah Winfrey.
Winfrey was visibly shocked Friday by the notion that RiRi and Breezy appear to have gotten back together, but in her own words, she also wasn't really shocked at all.
"I don't know that that's true," she said of the together-again rumor, "and no I'm not surprised," she told "Extra" in Houston while shooting the "Oprah's Life Class" premiere with Pastor Joel Osteen.
Winfrey wasn't shocked, she said, because of Rihanna's open heart and spirit of forgiveness during their recent interview. Oprah said she loved that Rihanna had "learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown -- exactly what she needed to learn from her father."
