About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

VIDEO: Family Affair & Classic Reunion For Diana Ross on Oprah Winfrey Show

Comments (46)



There's a reason why 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' has remained the #1 talk show for 24 consecutive seasons; she knows how to get the "gets."

Rounding out a month full of first-run exclusives, the media maven's candid chat with music legend Diana Ross will air Feb. 25.

Winfrey, who counts Ross as one of her childhood inspirations, said the show was a "full circle moment," for her -- recalling the time when Diana Ross & The Supremes became international superstars during the 1960s. "I have to keep myself from going into the ugly cry because of how much this woman, this legend, mean to me in my life and to the life of every little girl who dared to dream."

On the one-hour show, which revolves around the Motown Records legend, her children ; Rhonda Ross Kendrick, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chudney Ross, Ross Arne Naess, Evan Ross and her first grandson Raif Henok Emmanuel Kendrick make appearances.

In what could be considered her most candid, recent interview, the 'Aint No Mountain High Enough' chanteuse opens up about her family life (she was there when her first grandchild was born); embracing modern technology (going to the Apple store to take lessons on how to use a computer); and doing what regular people do (shopping at the supermarket for her own produce).

Ross also has a once-in-a-lifetime reunion with her 'Lady Sings The Blues' co-star Billy Dee Williams, with whom she also starred in the romantic drama 'Mahogany.'
