In a word: Ewww!!!!
At various (unfounded) points over the last few times, Oprah Winfrey has been linked romantically to BFF Gayle King.
Now, the talk show queen has another report to deal with that focuses on her love life:
According to an upcoming, unauthorized Oprah biographer by Kitty Kelley, Winfrey was involved with John Tesh many years ago, long before she hosted a hit talk show and started dating Stedman Graham.
The pair allegedly lived together in Nashville in the mid-70s, as both worked in broadcast television there. Why did Tesh, not a syndicated radio host and musician, call off the relationship? The "social pressure" of their interracial romance, an anonymous source claims.
"[He] couldn't take it anymore...He walked out in the middle of the night...he told me he later felt very guilty about it," said the insider.
The trashy book, which seeks to exploit Oprah's fame and private life, refers to Stedman as "boring as hell."
Without getting into specifics (likely because she has no evidence to back anything up), Kelley tried to create buzz around her book by telling USA Today:
"I know people are expecting me to 'out' her. But I think she's just asexual. She's poured all of her energies into her career. And if she is, she is never, ever going to come out. So relax, people."
Yeah! Relax, people! Stop getting so worked up over a story that never had a shred of proof and is only brought up by the least respectable publications around!
