Oprah Winfrey has some questions for former Glee star Charice Pempengco after seeing her new look.
Oprah reunites with Charice — whom she discovered during her days as a daytime talk-show host — on the upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, airing Sunday at 9 p.m. on OWN. The Queen of Talk had not seen the singer since their 2010 interview and upon witnessing her new persona, Oprah flat out asks, “Were you thinking about transitioning to becoming a male?”;
In the quick teaser for the episode, Charice is sporting a blond buzz cut and a black collared shirt. Revealing her excitement for the airing of her interview with Oprah, the 22-year-old singer Instagrammed: “Who’s excited to see this? #O #wherearetheynow #Oprah @oprah.”;
