EricLA saidI think she made some public comment with in the last few months saying she wasn't gay, didn't she? Besides, she still has the beau in her life.
She is not gay!
She said, "I'm am not gay--if I were, I'd tell you cause there is nothing wrong with it." ... or something like that
I believe her... I do. She is a great ally. If she were gay... we would have known 15 years ago.
Scuba, yup found the quote:
"I understand why people think we're gay. 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?, Oprah says in the August issue of O. "Something about this relationship feels otherworldly to me, like it was designed by a power and a hand greater than my own. Whatever this friendship is, it's been a very fun ride."
Adds Gayle, "The truth is, if we were gay, we would tell you, because there's nothing wrong with being gay."
