Shania Twain revealed that a dinner with Oprah Winfrey took an awkward turn on the subject of religion.
During an appearance on the Table Manners podcast hosted by Jennie and Lennie Ware, the 57-year-old Canadian country singer recalled that one of her “most memorable dinners” was with the 68-year-old talk show icon.
“She’s such a smart woman and it’s great to sit down and have real conversations,” Twain said, after noting the two dined at a restaurant.
“But as soon as we started talking about religion, everything turned sour,” he added.

“So I said, let’s stop talking about religion,” the “You’re Still The One” singer continued.
Twain went on to say that Winfrey is “quite religious.” When Ware, 37, asked Twain about his own religious beliefs, he explained, “I’m not religious in the sense that I’m devoted to a religion. I’m much more of a spiritual person.”
She added, “I’m a seeker.”
Ware said, “But at least you knew to stop it right there.”
“Okay,” Twain agreed. “You know how everyone always says, ‘Never talk about politics or religion.'”
“It wasn’t debatable,” said the five-time Grammy Award winner. “There was no room for debate. And I like to debate. Canadians like to debate everything. So I’m like, OK, I’ll change the subject.”
Winfrey was raised in the Baptist church and has declared herself a Christian. However, in a 2015 interview with AARP.org, she said that although she prays every night, she does not consider herself a “traditionalist” as she does not attend church every Sunday.

Although Ware had introduced the topic by asking about Twain’s most memorable dinner parties in the 1990s, the hitmaker did not specify exactly when the outing with the media mogul occurred.
Twain appeared on Winfrey’s former talk show “The Oprah Winfrey Show” many times over the years. In May 2011, the singer sat down with the host for her first interview in over five years, in which she opened up about the painful breakup of her marriage to Robert “Mutt” Lange.
He also revealed that he had been diagnosed with Lyme disease and dysphonia, a disorder that affected his vocal cords and resulted in a weak singing voice.

On May 8, 2011, Twain premiered her six-episode docuseries “Why Not? with Shania Twain” on Winfrey’s Own Network.
Twain appeared on the Table Manners podcast to promote her new single “Waking Up Dreaming,” her first new song in five years.
He previously announced that he is working on his sixth studio album, which will be his first solo album since 2017’s “Now.”
