Washington: Rae Dawn Chong, who co-starred with Oprah Winfrey in ‘The Color Purple,’ has claimed that the TV show host is a self-centered fat "biotch", who would have been a "field n**ger" back in the slave days.

She said that the two were friends on set, but things changed soon, TMZ.com reported.

In a radio interview, the 52-year-old said that Winfrey was "lovely" on the sets of the film, but became jealous when Chong got a part on Arnold Schwarzenegger`s action flick "Commando."

Chong also claimed that Winfrey is competitive, enormously insecure and does not like her.

She attacked Winfrey saying that she wants to be beautiful.

Chong concluded the interview appreciating Winfrey that the woman is a miracle and she respects her.

She said that Winfrey has shifted the DNA of the universe in terms of our thinking of a woman of a certain size and a certain shade.
