The You’re Still The One hitmaker, Shania Twain, said she enjoyed having ‘real talks’ with the talk show host, Oprah, but said there was no room for debate when they spoke about religion.

‘One of my most memorable dinners was with Oprah Winfrey,’ she said.

‘She’s such a sharp lady, and it was wonderful to sit and have substantive discussions, but as soon as we started talking about religion, everything went wrong.’

‘She’s really religious,’ Shania explains on the Table Manners podcast. [I’m] not devout to a religion in the sense that I follow a particular faith. I’m more of a seeker than anything else; I’m spiritual.”

‘You’ve probably heard people say that you should never discuss politics or religion, right? It was impossible to disagree with.’

Oprah has openly talked about her Christian faith on various occasions, most notably during her Oprah’s Lifeclass series.

‘I am a Christian, and my religion is my faith. I’m not asking you to be a Christian. If you want to join one, I can show you how. But it isn’t essential,’ she added on the program. ‘I have great respect for all religious beliefs.’

Shania Twain and Oprah appear to be on excellent terms. Shania went on Oprah’s talk show, and Oprah helped produce Shania’s 2011 docuseries Why Not? With Shania Twain. The series aired on OWN, Oprah Winfrey’s network.
