Why Oprah Is Really Quitting Daytime: The Gayle Factor


Oprah‘s big announcement that she’s leaving her daytime slot in 2011 might be sad news for the seven million viewers who tune in every day. And it might be devastating news to a certain web vlogger. But it’s great news, supposedly, for longtime gal pal Gayle King!

‘Cause guess who finally gets to move in with her lover?

Oprah and Gayle King will move in together at the daytime queen’s Montecito, Calif., manse, dubbed “The Promised Land.” That’s according to the frighteningly-sometimes-accurate National Enquirer, which floats an obvious storyline that doesn’t require “insiders” to source. It will also put an end to Oprah’s relationship with Stedman Graham, whom Oprah has either been dating or bearding since 1986. How nice, then, for a tabloid to be able to report what this powerful woman’s personal life is going to look like two years from now.

    Oprah Winfrey: The bearded lady’s side show closes………..

  • RomanHans

    Considering Oprah has cataegoricalaly denied being a lesbian since time began, a move like this would negate virtually everything she stands for, or has ever said.

  • Smelda

    Down lOprah.

  • romeo

    She’s denied it as a matter of form, but I think she understood that people with half a brain would consider that it was at least possibly true. Savvy people know that you can get away with all kinds of contradictory crap like that. And she certainly has.

    If this story is true about them moving in once she’s dumped the show, then good for her. Nothing like having it all, and she certainly does. LOL

  • Bob

    She’s a useless coward, if indeed she is gay. She could have helped our cause both financially and in her presence for all these years and instead hid behind a beard. If you are gay Oprah, who needs you now….go to hell!!!

  • terrwill

    I kinda sorta think that Oprah is a big ‘ol sister! Steadman has always been just outside the lines of the Oprah coloring book. I understand that she felt that she had to protect the brand. It was tough enough for her to break thru as a black woman. I think the blue haired ladies in the red states would have had their panties bunched up just a little bit too tight if Oprah was a Gay black woman………..She now has more money than a lot of the funny shaped countries in the world. Am hoping that she finally grows the breasticles to come out……….

    Terrwill, “breasticles” You’re incorrigible.

    “get here gayylle!”

    No. 7 · 1EqualityUSA: ;-P

  • edgyguy1426

    If she didn’t want the rumors to die down, why did she take Gayle to the State dinner and not Steadman?

  • Joey

    I think you people are hilarious, but not in the good way: I’m laughing at you, not with you.

    Wishing and fantasizing that Oprah was a lesbian is nice and all but we have better things to think about: have you all forgotten that DADT and DOMA are still in effect?

  • Joey

    Oh, BTW: she’s not quitting daytime TV. Apparently Oprah’s so powerful, she gets her very own tv channel. Do a google search for “OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network”

  • terrwill

    No. 12 · Joey: You really want to see how freakin powerfull Queen O is:

    This used to be on Webster’s Dictionary site if you typed “OWN”:

    Main Entry: Own
    Pronunciation: \??n\
    Function: adjective
    Etymology: Middle English owen, from Old English ?gen; akin to Old High German eigan own, Old Norse eiginn, Old English ?gan to possess — more at

    Now it reads:

    Main Entry: OWN
    Pronunciation: \Its OPRAH bitch\\
    Function: to make me even richer, bitches
    Etymology: Chicago origin- From bearded source- akin to Steadman, Grahm-not the cracker, rich, filthy rich, Gayle–big sapphiac affair –

  • jarvisbearcub

    I don’t believe it. Gayle’s been mooching off of her for years already. And Oprah’s home is big enough for a football team to move in.
