Oprah Spills The Tea On Why She Never Married Steadman Graham
One of the greatest Hollywood romance mysteries are between Oprah Winfrey and Steadman Graham.
I have no idea why fan are interested in their relationship, but for years folks would always wonder if they would take their relationship to the next level and finally we're about to get some answers.
In the February issue of O Mag, Oprah explains why Valentine's Day is NBD or "No Big Deal" for the slow people like myself.
I was Miss Black Tennessee. Many of the other girls were receiving flowers and gifts from their beaux. My boyfriend at the time, Bubba -- yes, real name -- sent me nothing. I felt bad about that and complained to another contestant. She laid this wisdom on me: 'Girl, if your man has put a flower on your mind, you won't need no flowers in a vase!
Then Oprah met Steadman in 1986, and this time she was going to play it cool. She thought he was a nice guy, but wasn't too impressed with him. She actually thought he was a player and was warned about even dating him.
However, despite her caution their relationship took off and many have been waiting on them to make it official.
For years, there were hundreds of tabloid stories, weekly, on whether we would marry. In 1993, the moment after I said yes to his proposal, I had doubts. I realized I didn't actually want a marriage. I wanted to be asked. I wanted to know he felt I was worthy of being his missus, but I didn't want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work.
They consider to have a "Spiritual Partnership" and honestly if that works for them then it works for me.
Now if I can get my love life together......
