Will Oprah ever marry Stedman? Oprah Winfrey is by far one of the wealthiest and most successful women on the planet. And although her reign as a talk show host is now over, Oprah’s career is still going strong as she has gotten back to the acting side of things with her role in the new Lee Daniels’ film “The Butler.” While the media mogul is always on the go and finding new ways to grow her empire, Oprah makes time for her love life as she has been dating longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham for about 27 years. And because of how long they have been together, many want to know what’s keeping Oprah and Stedman from making things official.
During her recent appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” Oprah chatted with Andy Cohen about her role in “The Butler” and her feelings about getting married. When asked if she ever planned on getting hitched to Stedman, Oprah says she doesn’t think she wants to become a wife because things are going so well between them and marriage may ruin their relationship. And she says her good friend legendary singer Tina Turner even had her doubts about getting married again after how things turned out with her previous marriage to ex-husband Ike Turner.
“I don’t know if I want to do that. You know why? It’s really good right now. And when you add that “wife” thing, then it’s too much…I was at Tina’s [Turner] wedding and she finally did it. But she basically did it for legal reasons. She was really hesitant too. You know, she’d been through that Ike thing. She didn’t want somebody to be able to control her in any way.”
Do you think marriage has the potential to ruin good relationships?
