*When Rihanna decided to reconcile with Chris Brown and get back on the “couple’s list” again, heads turned, women were publicly outraged, and Oprah spoke.

The former talk show host diva said she wasn’t surprised that they rekindled their relationship, but she did offer some advice for the singer.

“[Rihanna] learned a lesson that she was repeating with Chris Brown – exactly what she needed to learn from her father,” Oprah told EXTRA. “I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it. I have no judgment about it.”

She continued, “That’s why I can sit there and have such a great time with her because I do all my interviews with no judgment whatsoever. If that’s how you choose to lead your life, that’s really okay.
