Rumors about Oprah being a lesbian have been going around for a long time. The rumors involve Oprah and her best friend Gayle King. Finally, in her Barbara Walters interview, the talk show queen addressed these rumors.
With tears Oprah said, "I'm not a lesbian. I'm not even kind of a lesbian." She is irritated that people wouldnâ€™t believe her when she said she is not. She is also aggravated that somebody would think she would try to hide it if she were a lesbian. If OprahÂ was a lesbian why would she deny it? The two are incredibly lucky to share this type of friendship. It is amazing.
On Gayle, Oprah said, "She is the mother I never had. She is the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don't know a better person." Their long-time friendship is beautiful. Two women can absolutely be best friends forever and not be gay. Gayle and Oprah are those kind of friends.
As for a romantic relationship, Oprah has been with Stedman GrahamÂ for the past 20 years, which is how long sheâ€™s been close friends with Gayle. Oprah and Stedman share a house and have been together for a long time. Oprah said he is the love of her live.
