Stedman Graham - Stedman Graham Is Still My Lover Says Oprah Winfrey

STEDMAN GRAHAM, the American businessman, is still in a long-term relationship with OPRAH WINFREY, despite recent speculation that the talk show host may be more than friends with companion GAYLE KING. In a candid interview with ABC News, Winfrey denied that she is a lesbian, and confirmed that she and Graham remain very much in love, reports the New York Daily News.
56-year-old Winfrey set the record straight in the interview with BARBARA WALTERS, which airs today (9th December 2010), telling the presenter, "I'm not a lesbian", before adding, "I'm not even kind of a lesbian. And the reason why the rumour irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's No. 1. No. 2 ... why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life". The talk show host, whose show will soon come to an end after 25 years on the air, says that partner Graham is still the love of her life, adding, "The love ... the lover ... the man ... the partner ... the mate. I do not know of another man on this planet ... who could have lived this life with such dignity, with such grace and such respect and humility in it".
A clearly distressed and teary Winfrey then spoke intimately about her friend King, saying, "She is ... the mother I never had. She is ... the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves", before adding, "It's making me cry because I'm thinking about ... how much ... I probably have never told her that".

yeah right all of a sudden stedan is pulled out of the closet and dusted off amid lesbian rumours that could possibly hurt the shows ratings. i don't buy it not that I care if oprah's a lesbian or not. she's still admirable for her accomplishemnts. but the real question is why hav'nt oprah and stedman married after all these years. if the talk show host was a man and it was a woman hanging around for all that time. women would have been up in arms pressuring him to marry a double standard to say the least.goes to show women will talk alot of crap and turn around and do the same thing or worst.

Oprah, I believe you. I, too have been called lesbian because I am strong and confident and because I do not have boyfriend. Most people do not realize that there are a few of us who do not need a man around a lot, who prefer a single female friend who is in our corner and that we may more asexual that sexual. It has been a struggle with me, trying to dispel rumors when all I do is make accusers confused because they never see proof of what they think because there is none.

It is a brand new day!!!I am not a lesbian. I can understand Oprah's and Gail's relationship as best friends, sisters,a mother, the friend everybody would like to have. Because I have sisters in my life that I feel the same way about and would give them the best of what I have as well. I realize everyone is entitle to their own views, values, and morals. Many people have a closed mind on some many levels they could not understand how she feels about her best friend or Stedman.Would you want someone judging you in the same way.

Oprah has had 24 years of wonderful ratings, & is on her 25th year, do you really think this years ratings mean that much to her, that she would continue to lie about something like this? Stedman has been in the picture all along, Oprah just chose not to flaunt it, he has his career, she has hers, and think of all the tabloids claiming their break-ups since she announced she & Stedman were an item. I don't blame her or them for keeping their lives private. I think that since Michael Jackson has passed, the tabloids have decided to target the next most famous black person they could find...hence all the obsurd accusations towards Oprah. What a coinsidence that she would be criticised & accused of the same accusations as Michael...what is wrong with people?

Oprah is an incredible woman who has shown her generosity, love and compassion throughout the world. If she says she is not a lesbian, then she is not. She is powerful and courageous enough to admit the truth. Don't understand why americans are so caught up in one's orientation. If you only knew the pain and suffering one goes through to admit that they are gay. No one has the right to pass judgement on another human being in regards to this issue. This very well may be a genetic issue. Stop the slander, bullying and overall pain that is caused by your curiosity.

when you are a talk show host, it is not unexpected that ppl think they have a right to know about some ones personal life, as do when talk show host are asking of their guest, and as many tabloids like to report, but not all true, my opinion it is nobody business regarding your own personal life, but im sure as oprah knows, being in the media you put yourself out there and rumors are going to surface at some point, my opinion of oprah and gail king, i think they are the best of friends, i do not think she is a lesbien, in life you always look to that one person as your best friend, that you can confide in, things you wouldn't even tell your mother, take trips together, etc it is very hard these days to find someone you can trust with your life, find someone who is not going to turn on you, steal your boyfriend, husband etc i wish i had more friendships like oprah and gail, but lesbien, not, and to some who love drama or can't live with out, can't find happiness in their own lives, are some who always seem to target one, love oprah winfrey and all she has done over the years and all she has helped, hope she continues her success, and merry christmas to all! :)
