In tonight’s Barbara Walters special, Oprah Winfrey is setting the record straight: She’s “not even kind of a lesbian.”
The media mogul, whose new OWN Network is scheduled to launch Jan. 1, became emotional when explaining that rumors persist, mostly because of her close friendship with Gayle King.
“She is … the mother I never had. She is … the sister everybody would want,” Winfrey says. “She is the friend that everybody deserves.”
The one-hour interview special with Winfrey is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. on WXYZ-TV (Channel 7). It will be followed by Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of 2010” special at 10 p.m.
