Winfrey to air domestic violence show

Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey said she will do a show about dating violence this week.

She is sad over the fact that 19-year-old R&B star Chris Brown was allegedly assaulted Rihanna, a 21-year-old Barbadian singer and former beauty queen, in a Los Angeles area after a pre-Grammy Awards party last month.

The hour long episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' will air live from Chicago on Thursday. Winfrey offered Rihanna advice on her Friday show, saying, 'Heal yourself first and also, love doesn't hurt.' She also told the couple they should seek counseling.

Winfrey says the Thursday episode is 'dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world' and will include guest Tyra Banks.

A Los Angeles police affidavit alleges that on Feb. 8, Brown punched, bit and choked Rihanna until she nearly lost consciousness. He has been charged with two felonies and will be arraigned in April.
