    Oprah Winfrey apologized to Robin Givens on Friday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” over how she dealt with a comment made by the star’s ex, former boxer Mike Tyson, last month.

    “I was really hurt, really, really hurt,” Givens told Winfrey of the TV show host’s and her audience’s reaction to the boxer’s October “Oprah” show comments about the actress’ 1998 Barbara Walters interview. Tyson previously claimed on Oprah’s show that Givens lied during the interview and he added, “At that particular moment, I truly wanted to sock her, but I didn’t do it,” as the “Oprah” audience laughed.

    Oprah Winfrey apologized to Robin Givens on Friday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” over how she dealt with a comment made by the star’s ex, former boxer Mike Tyson, last month.

    “I was really hurt, really, really hurt,” Givens told Winfrey of the TV show host’s and her audience’s reaction to the boxer’s October “Oprah” show comments about the actress’ 1998 Barbara Walters interview. Tyson previously claimed on Oprah’s show that Givens lied during the interview and he added, “At that particular moment, I truly wanted to sock her, but I didn’t do it,” as the “Oprah” audience laughed.

    Givens, who is a spokesperson for the National Domestic Violence Hotline, said the reaction was difficult to take.

    “I just wanted you… When he said ‘I’ve socked her before,’ to say, ‘That’s not right!’ And it wasn’t right and it was painful,” Givens said. “There are so many women like me out there… if you hear laughter about it, it lightens it.”
