Oprah is revelaing why she makes very few public appearances with her boo Stedman. The pair have been together since 1986 and got engaged in 1992, but a ceremony never took place.
Oprah now admits that the media writing negative and false reports stories about her personal life took a toll on her. She said, “I’ve lived, as you have lived, every other week in the tabloids. I was always glad when you were on – to take the heat off me. I’m glad somebody else is on it.Every time I would get so upset about it, Maya [Angelou] would say, ‘But babe, you don’t have anything to do with that, She would respond with tears, ‘But they’re saying. You know it’s not true. You don’t know what it’s like when people are saying things about you.
She went on to say, “It’s also why I stopped making as many public appearances with Stedman. Because I realized that every time there’s a new photograph, there is a new story. It’s an invitation.”
