Oprah addresses the lesbian rumors on tonight’s Barbara Walters special

Tonight, Barbara Walters has an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey, who opens up about everything, from her love life to how she feels about her BFF Gayle King. She gets teary-eyed when talking about both, but also discuses the lesbian rumors that surround their friendship.


Oprah always handles the questions about being a lesbian with grace. She has the best response to not being gay ever — “[If I was gay] why would I want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life.”

Oprah: The Next Chapter airs on ABC at 9 p.m. tonight.
