Oprah Winfrey is NOT a lesbian, okay?!? Her and Gayle King are just close friends, nothing more. Now, if only Oprah and Gayle didn't have the need to keep telling everyone this ...
King appeared on "The View" this morning, further squashing the rumors we're pretty sure she stared by stating - once again - that her and the talk show goddess weren't lovers.
This nonsense is "silly," King said, seemingly ignoring the fact that she wrote a drawn-out article on the topic for O magazine. She also said the person most affected by such speculation is Stedman Graham, Oprah's very, very, very long-time boyfriend.
Oprah has money: Gayle did open up to Barbara, Joyand company regading her pal's open wallet. Evidently, Oprah is quite generous, paying for a nanny and a double-wide stroller when King's son was born, along with trips to Europe. Other tidbits from the interview included:
- Oprah and Gayle share footwear (but not beds!)
- Oprah can't stand listening to the radio
- King was once mistaken for Destiny Child's Kelly Rowland
But, just to repeat and paraphrase Rowland's former band mate, Beyonce: when it comes to any lesbian talk, you better check on it, folks.
