Oprah Winfrey has some questions for former Glee star Charice Pempengco after seeing her new look.

Oprah reunites with Charice -- whom she discovered during her days as a daytime talk-show host-- on the upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, airing Sunday at 9 p.m. on OWN. The Queen of Talk had not seen the singer since their 2010 interview and upon witnessing her new persona, Oprah flat out asks, "Were you thinking about transitioning to becoming a male?"
