What are the signs that Oprah Winfrey is a Lesbian?
We all know that Oprah leads a rather 'peculiar' lifestyle. And she has been tagged as a lesbian many times. What are the signs that Oprah is a lesbian?
Here's mine: She loves dogs and has a pack of them - and lesbians love dogs!! Now what are your signs that Oprah is a lesbian?

I think the rumor grew out of her almost obsessive love for Gayle and her rather quiet seemingly distant relationship with Steadman. (never married him.)
Steadman also seemed sort of gay. I remember tabloid photos of him modeling speedos in a fashion show that people thought seemed gay and after Oprah's last show he was on a show Gayle had on OWN and seemed smitten with her hot son.

Well, each of her homes has an adjacent bedroom for Gayle, but no rooms dedicated to Stedman. Plus Maya Angelou got drunk in a hotel bar and quietly said to friends of mine between sips of bourbon, "Gayle is Oprah's special friend" without making eye contact...

I think the fact she has this dominant, competitive and cold personality that is stereotyped as macho, has an authoritative voice, hasn't been married at all, her "boyfriend" wasn't convincing and her close relationship with Gayle. I think she's more along the lines of asexual and just fucks with money. Probably has stacks of dollar bills as dildos. She always came across as narcissistic to me but somehow fooled most of America into loving her. I respect her hustle but I'm sure once she dies, all the dirty and evil things she has done will come to light.

She was obsessed with John Tesh in her twenties. Has talked about running after his car in tears and hysterical.
I think between her molestation issues, her early dependence on men, her weight issues and then the immense fame just made her turn inwards and I doubt she has had sex in decades.
I guess Gayle being single for decades adds to the speculation.

She is capable actress too. I loved her in The Color Purple and Beloved. She was molested, grew up poor in Mississippi during a very racist time, was dark-skinned, a woman and not conventionally attractive and she rose to become the richest and influential woman of modern times. That's admirable. What I hate about her is she's narcissistic and phony, has connections to predators like Weinstein, is very cold and condescending to her guests, exploits tragedies for money, pushing New Age self-help gurus and I would not be surprised if she was a closet Republican. Like most billionaires she has skeletons in her closet and they will come out once she croaks.

Years ago, I worked for a celebrity (not someone who Oprah made famous, but someone who attained his fame independently by "helping" people) who claims Oprah hit on his wife. I think he told the truth.
However, if the story is true, I don't think she did out of sexual attraction, but just because she could, lol (that's my interpretation of events, though).

Advice giver Ann Landers daughter Margo had something very interesting to say about this a number of years ago. Since Oprah and Ann Landers were both located in Chicago, Oprah had Ann on her show and sometimes as a last minute replacement for someone who didn't show up. One day Ann Landers privately phoned up Oprah with some rumors that she had heard and told her that it appeared that her 'boyfriend' Stedman Graham was gay according to sources and she needed to rethink her relationship with him. Well!!! Oprah was NOT pleased and never had Ann Landers on her show again, and as Margo said, no more Christmas presents for her either. Oprah froze her right out. As far as I am concerned, Oprah, Stedman, and Gayle all Ping and have peculiar relationships!

If you watch really old, early episodes of Oprah show, her voice was more high-pitched. She spoke faster. She was not as authoritative. I'm guessing that around the time of her book club, she got that authoritative voice, like when she ripped that guy who wrote "A Million Little Pieces." (First she said it was OK that his autobiography was a work of fiction; then she brought him on the show and hung him out to dry.)

I know beauty pageants will judge on other things like charisma, talent, poise and intelligence. I guess O won on all those aspects.

Good point about Gayle never being part of a couple. That is convincing.
If they are a couple, I give them credit for staying together that long. I think Gayle does tell Oprah the truth about things. On that road trip, IIRC, Gayle told Oprah to stop her bitching (Oprah looked a little taken aback). So, looks like Gayle does not 100% kowtow to Oprah.

A friend from college went to work for a big law firm in NYC right out of college and Oprah was a client. She said that they were in the process of drafting her will and the big scoop was that in the event that Oprah croaked, Gayle got it all. Steadman got nothing.

Homosexuality is about love, not just sex. If a woman deeply loves another woman but doesn’t sexually consummate that love, is she not a lesbian? Oprah and Gayle are life partners. Maybe they don’t give each other orgasms, but they share love and affection and households.
Oprah keeps Steadman around so that the old aunties can point to him and say “See? she has a boyfriend.”

I think it's not just her friendship with Gayle but it seems like Oprah considers Gayle's kids to be her family as well. I always thought the Steadman thing was fake, but at the very least, Oprah & Gayle seem to have some friends with benefits type relationship in which Gayle & her kids serve as a surrogate family to Big O while Big O makes sure that Gayle is an integral part of whatever deals she's got (like when Gayle has inexplicably lasted at CBS)

Oprah and Gayle both started their lives in relationships with men that got them into trouble.
Oprah was raped, got pregnant, and lost the baby at age 15 - that’s when she moved North from Mississippi to be with her father. In her 20s, she shacked up with a guy who turned out to be a drug addict and even got her to smoke crack once. She got herself out of that situation and into the Oprah life we know now (in part because she went out on a date with Roger Ebert, who told her to syndicate her show).
Gayle was a married suburban mom with two kids and found out her husband was having an affair, so she got divorced.
I don’t think this means that they aren’t partners by any means, but it’s not as though either has had a particularly happy time with men in relationships. I have no clue what Steadman’s deal is.
And Hal Sparks couldn’t be more wrong about this:

I enjoyed the Oprah show episodes where Gayle joined Oprah for some adventure. Gayle was funny and down to earth, a refreshing difference from the self-important Oprah.
I don't think Oprah is gay. She addressed the issue on her talk show before. She looked into the camera and said something like, "I'd tell you if I was." Oprah and Gayle worked together at the same network when they were in the 20s. Since they had so much in common (young, POC, women, starting out at the same time in the same industry), they became fast friends. And their friendship lasted. Men have come and gone in Gayle's life, but Oprah has always been there. It's nice when friends reach the point of being family.

She doesn't hate herself for not looking pretty or beautiful. She would open her talk show in full glam and then show a clip of herself without any makeup huffing and puffing and sweating in the 20th mile of a marathon. Most women in the public eye are not secure seeing or presenting themselves in such an 'Earthy' way. Oprah always seemed unusually fine with being glammed up or just looking like a mess. Her insecurity was obviously her weight.
I don't care about her sexuality. I do think she loves Gayle as a life partner whether or not they have sex. That much is clear. Gayle seems sort of like her girlfriend and her daughter rolled into one package.
Oprah is an interesting personality. She's obviously a narcissist, but many narcissists are sociopaths and she does seem to be genuinely empathetic and altruistic. She has a savior complex for sure, but I think she "fooled" the public by authentically caring about people individually and as groups. She presented people, including gay men, with AIDS, and she argued with her audience members about how they treated them. She did the same with all kinds of marginalized people who were victimized. The rub is that she was driven to do it because she narcissistically relates to victims and wants to relate to celebrities. Her interviews with celebs are the worst because she cuts people off constantly to explain how she has had similar experiences and feels similar ways.
I think the bottom line is that she had a traumatic upbringing and feels victimized but set her sights on being famous, even more than she wanted to be rich. Because she feels like a victim and she knows that's an all-consuming feeling, she advocates for victims. Because her ego is a black hole, she craves associations with famous people and she will always be a starfucker to make herself feel valid and relevant. She seems to have a lot of compassion for ordinary people who are wronged, but to only really admire people who are famous, whether they are famous for being pretty, having a talent or own a mega-conglomerate business. All the same to her. If the cameras point at someone, that's the person she values and relates to.
So TL;DR version: I think Oprah is a rare non-sociopathic narcissist.

R52 Good points. Contrary to popular belief, not all narcissistic personalities are evil and out to do harm. Sure, they can't relate to others and are self-absorbed but that doesn't mean they don't have a strong sense of duty and morals. Even if they are hypocrites at times. Oprah was raised Christian (back when it meant something) and was alive during the Civil Rights, women's rights and Black power movement. Certainly that would be greatly influential on her psyche. Narcissists can do great things when they focus their energy. They get bragging rights and praise from others for philanthropy and charity. Regardless of their selfish intentions, it still brings good to the world.

There could be truth to that. Oprah at her peak didn't seem to care about Black community. She was a rich celebrity who happened to be Black But once she launched her network OWN which she intended to be a major cable network for all demographics and it flopped. She had to reassign the demographic to Black women and it kept the network alive. Now she's working with Tyler Perry and Ava DuVarney.
She seemed okay with telling Black gays and lesbians to be happy and come out to their families when they were on her show. It's 2021, I don't think Black people care anymore. We're cool with Queen Latifah. We all know Tyler Perry is probably bisexual. Oprah I feel is asexual though, she and Gayle have a romantic friendship.

[quote] Not that I needed to add any more lovers to Oprah: A Biography. She had had several over the years, including the muzak musician John Tesh, when they worked together in Nashville, and retired radio disc jockey Tim Watts, the married man who was the love of her life for four years in Baltimore. There was also a brief fling with Randy Cook, who lived with Oprah for a few months and described himself as her drug procurer.

A repairman was working at a home where Oprah lived and Stedman was staying with her at the time. He said that they each had their own separate bedrooms and from the signs he saw everyday they did not interact in each other's rooms at all. It was as though they were living like sister and brother.

Because she loves dogs? That's the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. Basing the sexuality rumors on that? Straight women love dogs too. Plus the stereotype is that lesbians love cats, and have houses full of cats.

[quote] 'Homosexuality is about love, not just sex.'
Nope. It's a sexual orientation as in sexual attraction. Everyone loves someone of the same sex, we all have parents, children, relatives and friends we love. Same-sex intimacy is unfortunately assumed to be homosexual because of our puritanical culture. In other cultures, kissing the same sex is not assumed to be anything other than a sign of closeness. Not sexual.
If you're talking about romantic love or companionship, that is usually linked to initial sexual attraction and infatuation evolves into a long-lasting platonic, unconditional love. That is basically most healthy marriages.

Gayle has issues with men. I remember her being on the show with Oprah and some expert. Gayle said what she wanted in a man and the therapist type person said that her standards are too high and arbitrary and she is missing out on a lot of good men because of that.
Oprah looked like she was going to cry and quickly agreed with the therapist that she has told Gayle that she misses out on men who might be really good for her over things like he's not tall enough etc.
I sort of feel like Oprah is happily asexual with Steadman but feels guilty that Gayle's love for her may have denied her a happy partner of her own.

Or maybe whatever Gayle's ex-husband put her through completely fucked her up. They divorced after he cheated in 1993 and he didn't bother to apologize to her until 2016. I always forget that the woman has two children.

R123 "The fact that she has never shown one sign of being a heterosexual." What is the sign of being a heterosexual in your book? If not being in an opposite sex relationship for ages? Are you touched in the head? If she has never shown one sign of being a heterosexual then she definitely has never shown one sign of being a homosexual.

She’s an incredibly smart successful and talented woman. Idiots on DL don’t know a great woman when it’s in front of the them. Is she perfect? Of course not- no one is. When you consider where she came from and what she has achieved- extraordinary. I am not a fan but I know success demonstrated across all media when I see it. Love the early poster who thinks because she has dogs she is lesbian. Women love dogs- shall I rattle off the names of famously heterosexual women who have been surrounded by pet dogs their whole lives- silly. And who cares if she’s a lesbian?

Asexual simply means not sexually attracted to anyone, R132 .It’s a real thing. There are people who live happily without seeking sexual partners.
Nonbinary, I know the definition of it, but cannot wrap my mind around what it means.

R134 "Asexual" people are still physically attracted to other people. They just have a low libido. That shouldn't be a sexuality. Having a high libido isn't a sexuality.

I don’t know if Oprah is gay or not. To me she does not give off a sexual vibe in any way. I do think it is unusual for a straight woman from Oprah’s generation to remain unmarried.
Perhaps the combination of her background (alleged sexual abuse and neglect during her childhood) and her early fame followed by immense wealth has served to isolate and insulate Oprah from much of what we would recognize as normal. Oprah is probably surrounded by yes-men (and women) all day long, which is not an environment conducive to healthy psychological development.

Reading through all the above tripe leads me to wonder why so many of you believe she should ever marry at all. So she can give away 50% of her fortune if things don't work out? Don't be ridiculous. Oprah is too smart to marry. There is no good reason for her to ever marry. Can any of you give one good reason why getting married would be advantageous for her?
If she is a lez then good for her. If she isn't, also good for her. She seems content with her non-status.
I'm not a fan but I would watch her show sometimes. I found her crazed fandom and appeal, odd. The "Oprah's Favorite Things" pushing and promotion of products are to this day, irritating. How many favorite things does this person have already, a couple hundred thousand?
Lez, not a lez, don't know, don't care. The only thing I find interesting about her is that she is crazy rich but won't get breast reduction surgery. She would look and feel so much better. Lop those things off and stop wearing those girdles that make you look like a sausage exploding out of its casing. I get the willies just looking at her sitting in chairs so uncomfortably.

She used to constantly be engaged to Steadman and but the wedding never happened. Maybe he wouldn't sign a strong enough pre-nup? She used to seem to want to be married or at least felt she needed it to please her frau audience.
When she got big enough to not need to please them she seemed to sour on the idea.
Why Gayle has never had a boyfriend in like 20-30 years is another question.
|by Anonymous||reply 145||November 28, 2021 5:48 PM
There is simply no accomodation or sign that Steadman even visits, yet alone lives in any of Oprah's houses that my cousin's firm has decorated. No mention of him, or his needs, at all.
But all he consideration for Gayle, who has her own areas of these houses and is consulted.
So, the Steadman business is a lie. Why lie? And why make my cousin and everyone else involved sign a NDA about these very things? Because she has something to hide.

Everything you said is a valid point except the NDA thing.
Celebs will make you sign an NDA to breathe near them if you're entering their home for any extended period of time. They will make you sign one if you work for them no matter what you're doing.
No one wants anyone to run off to a tabloid and talk about the contents of their fridge or medicine cabinet.
Or to tell their friend, who then goes on Datalounge, to talk about what speculations they've made about their personal lives based upon what they saw or didn't see at the house. (No offense, I'm just sayin'.)
I always thought she trotted Steadman out to show him off but otherwise he was just a friend that she could trust not to use her and keep her business to himself.

This is true.
I think she’s one of those women who isn’t interested in men or dick, but she isn’t really a lesbian, either. She’s getting her emotional intimacy needs met through Gayle, and I don’t even want to think about her sex life. She’s not very interested in discussing sex, that I recall.
