Oprah Winfrey has nothing to hide. And in one of her most intimate interviews to date, the beloved talk show host opens up to Barbara Walters about the leading man in her life — long-time partner Stedman Graham.
Oprah and Stedman began dating in 1986, but most recently, rumors that the queen of daytime TV was in a lesbian relationship with her best gal pal, Gayle King, have sparked reports that she ended her relationship with the successful businessman.
But Oprah is setting the record straight, insisting Stedman is the only love in her life and has stood by her in and out of the spotlight.
“Yes. (He’s) the love, the lover, the man, the mate (in my life),” the host shares in a TV interview with Barbara Walters airing tonight on ABC.
“I cannot say that I know of another man on this planet who could have lived this life with such dignity, such grace and such respect and humility and still hold his own and be his own.”
