Oprah: Gayle And I Are Friends, Not Lesbian Lovers
They're not gay - not that there's anything wrong with that.
In the August issue of "O" magazine, Oprah Winfrey opens up about those gay rumors involving her and best friend Gayle King.
She said she can see why people think they're an item, because they're always together.
She said people ask, "How can you be this close without it being sexual?" But she said it's not. She said the problem is "there isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women."
Plus, Winfrey said if they were gay they'd admit it, because there's nothing wrong with being gay. King said the rumors used to bother her, adding "it's hard enough to get a date on Saturday night."
But King said she doesn't care anymore.
