Chat show host Oprah Winfrey is stunned that her private life is featured in tabloids because she always keeps her relationship behind closed doors.

According to, Winfrey is happy living with her long-term love Stedman Graham and is surprised when magazines make up lies about her relationship being in trouble because she goes to great pains to keep it private.

She says: "I am very conscious of and cautious about what I do in my personal life. You'll never catch me having an argument with Stedman in public, or with anyone else, either. I believe that you praise people in public; if you need to say something that is going to be critical, say it in private.

"People always assume that it is the guy who has the power in the relationship, so they assume that the reason Stedman and I are not married is that he doesn't want to marry, which is not the correct assumption."
