Oprah Winfrey hopes that Rihanna is “prepared” for another go at romance with Chris Brown.

Despite suffering a physical attack at Chris’ hands in 2009, the Bajan singer revealed that she still felt “protective” over her ex-boyfriend during a recent interview with Oprah.

The daytime talk show queen admits she wouldn’t hold a potential reconciliation between the couple against Rihanna.

“I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it,” Oprah revealed to Extra. “I have no judgment about it.”

Oprah credits her open-mindedness as part of the reason her chat with Rihanna was a success.

It’s a practice she incorporates in all of her interviews.

“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,” Oprah explained.

“If that’s how you choose to lead your life, that's really okay.”

She also reveals she enjoyed the interview because Rihanna didn’t hold back.

Oprah was full of praise for the singer’s honesty.

“You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big wide open heart,” Oprah shared.
