50 Cent & Oprah Make Up

50 Cent Oprah

After years of publicly deriding Oprah Winfrey, it seems as if 50 Cent and his television nemesis have finally buried the hatchet. The G-Unit rapper/CEO finally made peace with the billionaire TV magistrate during their sit-down interview for Winfrey's "Next Chapter" series. By the sound of things on Twitter, the interview, which will air on OWN Sunday night (June 10) at 9 p.m. EST, went splendidly well. "Just leaving Fiddy's house …what a great conversation," Winfrey tweeted, before posting a picture of 50 with his arm draped around her via InstaGram.

The G-Unit general posted the same picture on his own Twitter account. With Oprah and her website both hyping the taped interview with comments ("Can you believe Fiddy meditates?") and a 30-second trailer, the two entrepreneurs have come a long way since their tension-filled relationship began back in 2006. It was then that 50 dissed the longtime talk show hostess for her lack of guest diversity. "I think she caters to older White women," Jackson told the Associated Press back then. "Oprah's audience is my audience's parents, so I could care less about Oprah or her show."
