On the heels of receiving negative press a week ago, talk show titan Oprah Winfrey won’t allow her friend, gospel singer BeBe Winans to host her Karaoke Challenge on her daytime talk show.

Winfrey was accused of having “double standards” last week after TMZ reported how the media mogul publicly rebuked R&B star Chris Brown for his domestic dispute with singer Rihanna, but had longtime friend Winans on her show to promote his new CD with sister CeCe Winans.

BeBe & CeCe appeared on ‘Oprah’ on Friday, Oct. 23 and performed a new song called ‘Grace.’ After the performance, Winfrey announced: “You’ll be seeing more of BeBe in my Karaoke Challenge later this season.”

Winfrey rep Don Halcombe has now announced that Winans is off the karaoke segment and that the singer will not appear on her talk show until his domestic violence charges are resolved.
