In the August issue of O magazine Oprah Winfrey declares, in a pretty lengthy article, that she and her best friend, Gayle King are just best friends, not lovers.
“I understand why people think we’re gay,” says the Mighty O. “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?”
And of course, reading this has had the predictable effect of making me realize how much I really want my own magazine.
