Chatting with Fortune magazine, Oprah says she visited Rosie over the summer in her New York suburban home, and brought along with her former MTV guru-turned-Oprah adviser Tom Freston and OWN execs Christina Norman and Lisa Erspamer.
“Rosie said, ‘I know you’re here to assess how crazy I am,'” Oprah recalls. “I said, ‘Basically, yes. I’m doing a crazy check.'”
Oprah apparently “warned” the controversial media personality that “she had better behave on OWN,” adding, “If you have an issue that’s causing a problem, speak to me, woman to woman, so that it doesn’t become a worldwide issue.”
