Oprah Winfrey will air a live show this Thursday, March 12, devoted entirely to dating domestic violence, the Associated Press reports. Winfrey said the episode is “dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world.” Last Friday, Winfrey spoke out on her show about the news that Rihanna had reconciled with Chris Brown, who was charged last week with two felonies alleging he punched, bit, and choked Rihanna until she almost became unconscious. “Love doesn’t hurt,” Winfrey said on that show, “and if a man hits you once, he will hit you again. I don’t care what his plea is; he will hit you again.”
