Oprah to Barbara Walters: 'I'm not even kind of a lesbian'
It’s the rumor that won’t seem to go away: Does the queen of daytime TV like the ladies?
Oprah Winfrey is once again trying to put it all to rest: “I’m not a lesbian.”
The 56-year-old media mogul opened up to Barbara Walters in a revealing and emotional interview on ABC and discussed the story that’s been tabloid fodder for years.
And she’s taking it one step further lest you think there’s even an ounce of female smushin’ going on with her and her bestie Gayle King: “I’m not even kind of a lesbian.
“And the reason why [the rumor] 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.”
In a clip that aired Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America,” a crying Oprah also addressed her close friendship with King: “She is the mother I never had. She is the sister everybody would want. She is the friend everybody deserves. I don’t know a better person.”
So why all the tears? Oprah says it’s because she’s never told those words to King. Awwww.
The interview airs Thursday on ABC.
ShowTrackers, what do you think? Ready to believe her? Don't care?
