Oprah Apologizes To Families At African School.

In January, talk-show legend Oprah Winfrey opened up her all-girl leadership academy on tearjerker TV specials, with declarations of finding Africa’s next leader. But over the last few weeks, Oprah has been making more painful trips to Africa, amid allegations of physical and sexual abuse, the Daily Mail reports.

An internal investigation is ongoing concerning a student who reported to having been grabbed by the throat and thrown against the wall by a schoolworker.

The suspected abuser has been removed from the $30.4 million Johannesburg boarding school, where 152 African girls reside.

“I’ve disappointed you. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry,” Oprah said to the devastated families of the girls in an emergency meeting at the campus, according to the New York Daily News.

Reports poured in from students of sexual abuse, and alleged that school matrons had screamed and sweared at them.

In a statement, the chief executive of the academy, John Samuel, said that the South African police family violence, child protection and sexual offenses unit had been notified of the allegations.

“The inquiry is being conducted in a manner that supports the safe and nurturing environment of the academy, with minimal disruption to campus life. In addition, the academy is providing psychological support and counseling services to our learners.”

Designer Ivy Supersonic was thrown out of Tyra’s studio after disagreement. Here are the accounts of what happened….

IT was a tense moment behind the scenes at “The Tyra Banks Show” the other day when the supermodel host’s security guards threw out designer Ivy Supersonic minutes before the program taped. “The segment was on hooking up with men, and I came in this beautiful $800 dress, silk with black lace from top to bottom,” Supersonic told Page Six. “But they didn’t want any of my tattoos showing – I have a ‘justice’ tattoo smack across my chest and ones that say ‘Thank you, God,’ ‘Warrior’ and ‘Force of Nature.’ Then they made me take off my jewelry and put on some Kmart T- shirt. They wanted me to say a line, ‘I’m like Samantha from “Sex and the City” ‘ – like I’m the find ’em, feel ’em, [bleep] ’em and forget ’em type. I mean, what kind of show is this?” Supersonic said she got fed up, ripped the T-shirt off and threw it on the floor, prompting security to toss her out. Banks’ rep did not return calls.
