Author Kitty Kelley is revealing all about America’s favorite talk show queen Oprah in her latest biography. But we highly think Winfrey will be running to the bookstore to pick up a copy.
The book is reportedly all about Oprah’s deepest darkest secrets, and the woman she is when the cameras aren’t rolling. Kelley appeared on the Today show this morning and said, "There are so many secrets in her life. Secrets about her relationship, secrets within her family.”
Kelley never actually spoke to Oprah directly to get information for the book, but says she used countless interviews the talk-show queen has given through the years, and also quotes from friends, family members and employees.
As for the rumor Winfrey and her best friend Gayle King are in a relationship, Kelley says there is "no foundation for the rumors of a lesbian relationship." However Kelley quotes Rosie O'Donnell (from a 2009 Howard Stern interview) saying Winfrey and King are the "emotional equivalent of a gay couple," and author Erica Jong saying, "I would not be surprised if Oprah is gay."
The author goes into deeper secrets, like claiming that Oprah was molested as a young girl, and has a secret birth father. Her known father, Vernon Winfrey, was interviewed for the book, and told Kelley,: "I need her show like a hog needs a holiday. She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth. So does God and so does Oprah. Two of us remain ashamed."
So scandalous! We couldn’t imagine what he is referring to, but now the book is sounding a little interesting! Oprah is out in stores tomorrow.
