Chris Rock returned to the Stern Show on Wednesday and spoke to Howard about his new movie “I Think I Love My Wife,” which he both starred in and directed.

Chris also told Howard he’s recently hung out with Oprah Winfrey, including at the grand opening of her school in South Africa. Chris apparently calls Oprah on occasion, especially when he sees something interesting on her show. Though Chris had to pay for his own flight to Africa, he revealed Oprah took care of all other expenses once he got there including food and his hotel. The special trip also saw him hanging out with Tyler Perry, Gayle King, Danny Glover, and Chris Tucker.

Rock also told Howard about almost getting “bamboozled” into thinking he was the father of a woman’s baby while on the trip. According to Chris, the scam starts with a Nigerian man getting a white woman to sleep with rich and famous married men and then getting the same girl pregnant. The rich men are then accused of being the fathers, leading them to pay rather than go through the embarrassment of a trial.
