When did oprah and stedman start dating
Winfrey was born in Kosciusko, Miss., in 1954, and, the way she likes to tell it, she was so impoverished that she never had any new dresses or dolls and had to adopt two cockroaches as pets, naming them Melinda and Sandy. She may not have been well off, but Oprah was relatively "spoiled" as a little girl, her cousin said."Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches I have no idea," said the relative, Katherine Carr Esters.The media mogul shot down a gossip report that she and longtime beau Stedman Graham are tying the knot after three decades of dating. Graham, 65, proposed to Winfrey, 62, in 1992 and they planned to get hitched a year later.
I think it's acceptable as a relationship, but if I had the title 'wife,' I think there would be other expectations for what a wife is and what a wife does," she told Access Hollywood at the time.
A friend of Stedman’s revealed that Oprah had disclosed the wild idea of marriage to her longtime boyfriend at her California estate.
The friend was quoted having said: “It was a beautiful afternoon and they were walking hand-in-hand in her gardens.
There’s something I really need to ask you, Stedman.
She began to break down crying, saying she had made a mess of OWN.In 2016, she was forced to take to Twitter and shut down rumors that she and Graham were planning a wedding.
