Oprah Says She's Not Gay
Oprah ("I just haven't met the right man") Winfrey denies she is gay despite her very close relationship with Gayle King. "I understand why people think we're gay," Winfrey says. "There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. So I get why people have to label it -- how can you be this close without it being sexual?" King assures us the two would come clean if they had a lesbian relationship.
So are we delving into gossip and innuendo as one of our State House reporters thinks blogs do a little bit too much of? No. We're just passing along an item from today's Washington Post, which adds this reaction: "One more mystery solved. No word yet on why Winfrey keeps foisting King on a public that clearly ain't interested."
