Oprah Winfrey seems to be getting all the powerful interviews lately.

First she had Rihanna declaring her love for Chris Brown and now she got Jennifer Hudson to open up for the first time on Oprah's Next Chapter about the tragic murder of her mother, brother and nephew at the hands of her estranged brother-in-law William Barfour. And shockingly, the singer-actress says she is beginning to forgive him. "For the most part, it's not his fault," she said. "It's what he was taught, how he was brought up. Had you had the love my mother gave us, or the background that, you know, some have, then you would've stood a chance."

A jury found William guilty of the murders this past May. Last July, he was sentenced to three life terms, plus 120 years for a variety of other crimes. Jennifer admitted she hadn't been to her family's grave site since the funeral service, but intends to now that justice has been served.

"Now I want to go because I feel like, OK, we've accomplished this, we've done this, we got justice for you," she said. "I can't come back here empty-handed. So I came back with justice being served. So now I feel like I deserve to be able to see them."
