Notes of Interest from the Interview with Rae Dawn Chong

In June, Rae Dawn Chong, actress and Tommy Chong's daughter called into Matty P's Radio Happy Hour.

Besides the well-documented Oprah Winfrey controversy, the interview was packed full of great stories.

Here are some highlights:
  • In 6th grade, she was busted for selling weed.  Tommy comes to the school with his really long hair and they assumed she was selling his weed.  It wasn't.
  • She's only done heroin twice in her life, despite what Mackenzie Philips said in her book. She didn't shoot it.
  • Rae Dawn went with Mackenzie to a publisher meeting at Tavern on the Green in NYC and Mackenzie kept nodding off.  Rae Dawn was such a drug novice that she didn't even realize Mackenzie was on heroin at that time. 
  • Rae Dawn disputes Mackenzie Philips incest allegations.  She says Papa John Philips was a junkie who had no interest in sex.  He was only interested in drugs and money.
  • Tommy Chong discovered the Jackson 5.
  • Michael Jackson was so obsessed with Rae Dawn that he cast a Rae Dawn look-a-like for the The Way You Make Me Feel video.
  • Steven Spielberg cut most of her scenes from The Color Purple, scenes which could have scored her an Oscar.
  • Steve Spielberg put the moves on Rae Dawn during filming.
  • Her former husband, C Thomas Howell, was well-hung.
  • She was hired to be on Good Times, but she was fired because she spoke too well.
  • She didn't get along with Jim Belushi while filming The Principal.
  • Recently, she shot a pilot for a new show called The Celebrate. She wrote it. It's about a woman that travels around New Hampshire to see the human condition.

Entire Audio of Rae Dawn Chong Interview...Let the Truth be Heard

Last week, TMZ posted excerpts from an interview Matty P's Radio Happy Hour conducted with Rae Dawn Chong.  Rae Dawn made some very crude and, some would argue, racist comments about Oprah.

Rae Dawn responded with a video on YouTube saying those clips were taken out of context.  She said if everyone heard the entire interview, it would make more sense.

We have the entire audio interview for download right here.  She's correct.  It doesn't sound as bad if you hear the entire interview.

In summary, Rae Dawn Chong and Oprah Winfrey were in the film The Color Purple.  Rae Dawn went on to do Commando with Maria Shriver's husband (Arnold Schwarzenegger).  Oprah is a very jealous and vindictive person.  She was super jealous of Rae Dawn.  Oprah invited the Commando cast to be on her show.  The cast was backstage as she called each cast member out on stage.  She called everyone, but Rae Dawn.

Update: Rae Dawn Chong Releases Rebuttal Video

In case you missed it, media outlets posted clips from an interview Tommy Chong's daughter, Rae Dawn Chong, did on Matty P's Radio Happy Hour in which she ripped Oprah a new a-hole and said in the old days she would have been a field n*gger.  This is because she's pissed off that Oprah brought everyone from the film, Commando, on stage to be interviewed...everyone, but her.

Now, Rae Dawn and her people must be freaking out because of the bad exposure this gave her.  She's saying on twitter that if TMZ had posted the entire interview, everyone would have heard her complement Oprah.
Side note: Unlike her dad, Rae Dawn is actually a nice person.  She speaks her mind. Everyone knows Oprah is a horrible person so don't act surprised by Rae Dawn's comments.

Here's her rebuttal.

Tommy Chong's Daughter, Rae Dawn, Blasts Oprah Winfrey

Tommy Chong's daughter, Rae Dawn, blasted Oprah Winfrey during her interview on the June 27th episode of Matty P's Radio Happy Hour.   She says she and Oprah got along great during the filming of The Color Purple, but things turned sour after Rae Dawn filmed 1985's Commando.

The cast was invited to do an interview, by Oprah, but Oprah never invited her on stage.

“That’s when she was a total biotch,” she emphasized. "I starred in ‘Commando.’ And she just wasn’t having me. She’s competitive. She didn’t like me. She just wasn’t having me."

"If you look at the way [Oprah] looks, she looks like 60 years ago she would have been a house keeper luckily. She would have not been a house n**ger she would have been a field n**ger."

"No matter how vile she is, you kinda gotta go, 'hello hats off' like, you’ve done an amazing thing you have actually shifted the DNA of the universe."

Keep in mind that Rae Dawn is half black so she must think she has a free pass to have this tirade.  Tommy Chong left his wife/her mom after knocking up his 14 yr old babysitter, Shelby.  Yes, this is the same Shelby he's still married to.
