People, come on, Oprah Winfrey is not gay. Neither is best friend, Gayle King.

The duo – who made this issue incredibly public in the first place with an article in O magazine – probably now wishes it would die. Instead, pundits and PR gurus are alive and kicking with criticism.

In response, Oprah are also announced that she and Olbermann are not dating.
