Facing questions from Barbara Walters in an ABC special called Oprah: The Next Chapter, Winfrey makes it clear that longtime sidekick King is simply her BFF and declares that Stedman Graham really is the love of her life.
"I'm not a lesbian...I'm not even kind of a lesbian," Winfrey says. "And the reason it irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's No. 1. No. 2...why would you want to hide it? That's not the way I run my life."
But there is something about King that makes Winfrey start bawling during the confessional.
