Oprah Still Hiding Love Affair With Gayle King, Insists America’s Most Trusted News Source

What better way to celebrate the launch of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN television network than with a front page tabloid cover insisting the talk show queen once again lied about her lesbian relationship with Gayle King? Drumming up old history, the National Enquirer isn’t letting a few tears shed for Barbara Walters get in the way of THE REAL TRUTH: “Inside sources reveal that behind closed doors the two women live a lesbian lifestyle – sleeping together in the same bed and vowing to love each other unconditionally for the rest of their lives. Both washed their hands of men years ago, insiders say, with Oprah callously betraying her former fiance Stedman Graham to nurture her relationship with Gayle. What’s more, sources say the wealthy and powerful talk-show queen has used payoffs, bribes and outright lies to keep America from learning her secrets.” Well now I know the first question I’m gonna ask Oprah’s all-stars.

      Hey, that paper was nominated for a Pullitzer Prize for investigative journalism for breaking the John Edwards story, when all other media outlets said that the story was fake.

      If they are completely wrong, then I would assume they would be hit with a massive lawsuit, but that hasn’t happened.

      I haven’t read the article but I am curious as to whether it’s written in such a manner to accuse and yet not accuse.

      I mean, it’s OPRAH!!! So, they must know she’ll come out guns blazing if will be sued and lose if they don’t have their ducks in a row.

      Thus, most of the time I tend to believe the tabloids like these.

      I meant, they’ll be sued by all powerful Oprah… and lose if they don’t have their ducks in a row.

      The Enquirer has actually had a fairly good track record of late of actually being right in their stories. They are carefull to cross their T’s and dot their I’s in all the correct places to avoid lawsuits. They may have gotten signals from Oprah’s camp that now that she is a gazzilionare and doesn’t need to be concerned with network ratings she may be willing to peek her head out of the closet. And possibly this is a way of testing the waters…………..

      Its like the old saying where there is smoke, there’s fire…..And damm if there ain’t been billows of smoke blowing out of that story for a looooonnnnggg time………

      @Cam:

      Agree.
      @scott ny’er:

      Exactly. It’s all about how they write it. And this is the genius behind the national enquirer which is always sticking 2 fingers up at the establishment of hoolyweird. It’s like they are the daily show. So where as in the DS use satire to tell us the truth, the NE use a mixture of true stories AND fake ones to make it all seem like it’s all in one the same but you notice it of you bother going through the paper.

      And yes, why hasn’t she sued?
      @PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS:

      Exactly.

      Oh God, who cares?! Give me the secret gay sex lives of people it turns me on to imagine naked and doing it. And 56 year old Oprah’s mattress tumbles with anyone don’t qualify.

      Why are we supporting gay witch hunts exactly?

      People want to out her(without a shred of proof mind you) just to ostracize her, not embrace her. They want to damage her career and quite frankly tear her down because she’s a black woman with more influence and money than most people on the planet.

      There are so many things wrong with this it’s ridiculous and it’s ironic that so many gay people and supposed allies seem to support it.

      There’s literally no reason to keep trying to force a different answer(than the one she’s given) other than to potentially hurt her career and “take her down a peg” which is petty jealousy at best.

      @Hilarious: I 100% agree. WHY are you gay people supporting this?

      America should be ashamed. WHO CARES if Oprah is gay or not? WHY do we even need to know?

      Just to mention, I also sleep in the same bed with my sister (one of my best friends) and other female friends, but that doesn’t make them my girlfriends/lovers!

      Are women no longer allowed to hug, love each other or innocently share a bed without being labeled lesbians?? Sometimes this is just called, being sisters! or being friends who are like sisters! Or better yet, can’t someone be queer without people tormenting them to tell the media juust because they’re famous?

      I wished those tabloids and everyone else would just LEAVE OPRAH ALONE.

      You have a very different definition of “queer” than I do. The words “shame” and “denial” don’t appear in mine. Of course, I knew something was up when you said you agreed with Hilarious. That’s pretty much shorthand for saying you’ve got pudding for brains.

      It’s only a witch hunt if you think that being gay is something dirty and shameful, something to hide.

      @Hilarious: Far from your conclusion about tearing her down due to her race………I admire the bejezus out of her. She ran circles around the network execs when she launched her show, by retaining ownership of the entire operation and sticking to her guns. She now is going to continue to reap the rewards by repackaging her old shows in multiple configurations. Not just showing simple repeats of old shows……..And running an entire network named after herself……….

      Maybe I am being selfish, but I would like to have such a successful out Black woman for our side……….Ellen has proven that being Gay is certainly not a barrier to being successfull in that arena………There are lots of Gay Black women in that community who could certainly benefit having such a tremendous role model to inspire them

      @RomanHans: Cute, you had no argument so you had to twist words, and hurl insults. You’ve removed yourself from the conversation.

      @Cam: Oprah was asked(many times) if she was gay. Her answer was no. Everyone is now proceeding to proclaim she’s gay regardless of how many times she says “No.” in a quest for the “truth”. That’s exactly what was done to “witches”, they answered “No.” and tests took place from drownings to burnings and hangings.

      Her answer was “No.”, why should anyone have the right to keep saying “Yes you are.” after the fact?

      @PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: It would be terribly silly to assume because you don’t want to tear her down that others don’t want that very outcome.

      Ellen lost her show and couldn’t find work. She got lucky…extremely lucky with her talk show deal. She herself said she couldn’t believe it.

      We have Wanda Sykes and Sheryl Swoops off the top of my head. There’s also Queen Latifah who everyone KNOWS is a lesbian even if she hasn’t come out as far as I know she isn’t really denying it, she just isn’t shouting out at the top of her lungs to anyone who will listen. As I’ve said before Oprah said she’s not gay. Why keep pressing for a “Yes.”?

      No means no. “Lying” or not, it’s her choice, and her business. Coming out is a choice, and that’s the right of the individual. Gay people should know and understand that more than anyone else.

      Would you want to be outed against your will? Would you want your personal business all over the cover of magazines and televisions for people’s personal enjoyment as they mock and laugh at you?

      Celebrities are just people like everyone else and they do have a right to privacy.

      Ok, so….lets see…..John Edwards said he didn’t have an affair. Gee, why did anybody have the RIGHT to say “Yes you did” after he said no?

      Riki Martin said he wasn’t gay. Why did anybody have the “Right” to say he was?

      Sorry, but you still seem to think that being called gay is a horrible insult. Shame on you.

      @Hilarious totally agree but wanted to add Queen Latifa has denied many times early on that she was not gay. She just stopped. I guess she sees now she’s not fooling a soul…

      @Cam: This straw man is so utterly pathetic. The first response was just stupid so I assumed maybe you really didn’t know what a witch hunt was. This new response is just you making things up and poorly attempting to put words in my mouth.

      Yeah gay commenters on Queerty really think being called gay is a horrible insult. Grow up.

      I bet you’re one of those asshole who accuse random straight guys on the street of being gay too and won’t back off when they say “No.” either.

      Shame on YOU for making the rest of us look bad.

      You think because two out of the hundreds if not thousands of celebrities accused of being gay were actually gay that every celebrity accused of being gay is actually gay? Really? You’re that stupid?

      @$0.02: Now that I think about it I do believe she denied it after Set it Off came out. I don’t blame her though.

      OK, wait…I thought the rule was to leave people be if they’re closeted and don’t antagonize the rest of us? What ever happened to that? Oprah is to me a little shady with all that down-low borderline scapegoating (IMHO), but I realize not all gays agree, and my opinion is certainly not of a consensus among us. So, I ask, we are to uncritically support her being outed? And what about the journos involved, are they LGBT? Let me see if I am understanding this correctly; straights out one of us and we cheer them on because they are straight assholes? I don’t really agree with that, it’s too lap-doggish for my tastes.
