Throughout her career, Oprah has built a reputation for conducting thought-provoking interviews and providing stimulating commentary.

In contrast, when it came to spending time together, Shania revealed that the conversation turned “sour.”

During a podcast, ‘Table Manner,’ the singer admitted that she had learned to keep specific topics off the dining table.

It is a podcast hosted by Jessie Ware that discusses “food, family, and the beautiful art of having a conversation” at her dining table.

As she praised Winfrey, she said, “I think one of my most memorable dinners was with Oprah Winfrey. She’s such a smart lady.”

Despite this, great intelligence often comes with strong opinions. The singer revealed they did not share the same religious beliefs in this case.

The actress expressed her views on the media tycoon, “She is quite religious.” But on the other hand, she clarified that she does not identify with any particular religious denomination.

Shania explained, “I am not religious in the sense that I am dedicated to a religion. I am much more of a spiritual person. I would say I am a seeker.”

As recounted during the podcast, Shania described her dinner with Oprah in the 1990s. She remembered, “It was great to just sit and have real talks. But as soon as we started talking about religion, it all went sour. So, I said, ‘Let’s stop talking about religion!'”

While in the middle of the conversation, she quickly realized, “Everyone always says, ‘Never talk about politics or religion.'”

While she acknowledged that she would have loved to discuss the matter, she stated, “It just was not debatable. [So] there was no room for debate, and I like to debate.”
