Oprah Winfrey has filmed an interview with Barbara Walters to mark the end of the Oprah Show and she cried.
How very Piers Morgan. Surely he has a patent on that?
During said interview, she was asked about the lesbetronic thing – for surely she is the Don Hymeone of the Muffia – and about her friendship with Gayle King who together are known as the Starsky and Butch of the entertainment world.
In what is being described as a ‘deeply personal’ interview – we will be the judge of that if we find the time – Opes opens up about her gayship with Gayle King. By which we infer nothing. She’s called Gayle. So it’s a gayship. Sometimes these things are just handed to you on a Marks and Spencer platter.
‘I am not a lesbian,’ said Oprah off-of the Oprah Show.
‘I am not even kind of lesbian.
‘This irritates me because it means somebody must think I’m lying. That’s No. 1. No. 2, why could you want to hide it?’
(Good answer, by the way. We’ve had many a famous try and squirm out of that one with much crappier results.)
‘That is not the way I run my life.’
And c) and d). It’ll be on the telly soon. We don’t want to ruin it for you.
But don’t you find it frightening that Oprah’s new television network is called the Oprah Winfrey Network, which comes with the very handy acronym OWN. She’s like the Tesco’s of telly.
