Did Oprah lie?

Oprah WinfreyIf a new unauthorised biography called Oprah: A Biography by celebrity biographer Kitty Kelley is to be believed, then American talkshow host, Oprah Winfrey, has been lying about her past all along. The book claims that Oprah, 56, paid money to keep her lesbian affairs under wraps.

The book added that the man in Oprah’s life, Stedman Graham, was not really her partner. “Oprah keeps Stedman around because she wants her audience to accept her as a normal woman with a man in her life, but, I can tell you there’s nothing there with Stedman. Nothing at all,” James van Sweden, an architect, who worked for the couple, was quoted as saying.

Even Oprah’s father, Vernon, has been quoted as saying, “She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth. So does God and so does Oprah. Two of us remain ashamed.” Oprah has made no comments.
