New York -- Oprah Winfrey and her friend Gayle King want to be clear: they're not gay.
In the August issue of O, the Oprah Magazine, the talk-show host explains that some people misunderstand her close friendship with King.
"I understand why people think we're gay," she 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?"

...."we just wear each others underwear"....but we realy don't have sex"......
Well what ever happened to STUDMAN, er, STEDMAN? She gone AC/DC now? Money makes alot of people crazy...
As the ole saying goes...Money is a horrible master, and a magnificent slave!!
It's kind of unfortunate and sad that anyone would think they had to defend or explain a nonsexual relationship.
Well, OK then.
"So I get why people have to label it how can you be this close without it being sexual?"
Homosexuals have been asking that for years.
I think it stems from never having a close relationship with their parents, friends, siblings, God, neighbors, grandparents, teachers, mentors, etc. etc.
Sex does not equal love. Sex is not the ultimate expression of love.
Not at all. Just the exercise portion so that you insure a long life together. :) 17th anniversary was yesterday.
Once upon a time, there was a definition in our culture. It was called "friendship."
It used to be that having lifelong close friends of the same sex didn't raise suspicions. If you saw two guys palling around with each other in trunks at the beach, they were just friends. If two women walked arm in arm, it was because they were really close confidantes. It's only now that homosexuality has been legitimized and streamlined as a "alternative lifestyle" or "orientation" that people think it's 50/50 something sexual is going on if two women or two men are roommates or constant companions.
And I understand why Oprah would make a statement like that. Gayle is pretty and sweet, a very kind person who has put up with who-knows-what kind of diva stuff from her friend for so many years.
If O wanted to enhance her rep with her gay followers, she would deny having an affair with someone like Gayle. And Gayle being Gayle, she would go along with whatever O said. She is the epitome of "too nice."
so maybe, its just that our society has sexualized EVERYTHING and everybody.....
for the record, I could care less if Opray was a goose...I don't watch her and could care less what she does....
If Oprah was homosexual,she'd announce it in a heartbeat.Such an announcement would increase her net worth by a billion dollars within 3 years.

I knew explained to me they
were not gay. They said,
"Sure, we are bi and
have sex with each other, but
we're not gay. We're bi!"
Ah thanks. We go to the beach with lots of friends and family the same time each year so there is never "alone" time. So we make it up later! %^)
