According to www.eurweb.com
TMZ.com has tracked down the ex-wife of gospel star BeBe Winans to get her reaction to his continued appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” despite his ongoing domestic violence case.
In February, Debra Winans made headlines after accusing her ex-husband of shoving her to the ground in front of their two kids, ages 10 and 13. According to the report, the two had a “verbal altercation” regarding “custody issues dealing with their children.”
In light of Winfrey’s stand against domestic violence, and particularly Chris Brown, who has pleaded guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, Debra Winans tells TMZ she’s “hurt by Oprah’s decision to have BeBe on the show.”
Ironically, BeBe’s arrest in February came one day before Oprah aired her domestic violence special in response to the Chris Brown case.
With a domestic violence charge pending until another court hearing next year, BeBe was on “Oprah” Friday to promote “Still,” his new gospel album with sister CeCe. He is also the host of “Oprah’s Karaoke Challenge,” a nationwide competition to find the best karaoke singer.
Round 1 of the challenge will air on Thursday (Nov. 5).
