Oprah Winfrey, the queen of talk, probably won’t be inviting R&B singer/actor Jamie Foxx back on her daytime show anytime soon. Foxx recently angered Oprah by taking a punch at her close relationship with friend Gayle King. The Oscar-winning actor made a reference to rumors about a lesbian-relationship between the two women – which both have strongly refuted – during a show honoring Will Smith on Sunday. According to Fox News, the “Miami Vice” star said, “Will, I was talking about you the other day. I was laying in bed with Oprah, and I turn over to Gayle and I said, ‘You know what?…'” The roars of laughter from the audience – which included Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Eva Mendes, Chevy Chase and Thandie Newton, reportedly made the punch line inaudible. Foxx insists the quip was made without malice and hopes TV network Bravo will cut the joke from its broadcast. Smith – who is currently starring in “The Pursuit of Happyness” with his son Jaden – was being toasted by the American Museum of the Moving Image.
