In an interview with Barbara Walters, Oprah addressed the gay rumors, stating quite matter of factly, "I am not a lesbian." That wasn't good enough for ABCNews.com!
In a hard-nosed journalistic search for the truth, a reporter on the red carpet at Friday's Jingle Ball asked Rosie O'Donnell for her thoughts on the matter.
Quoth Rosie: "I think that she's always told the truth so why people wouldn't believe her, you know, I don't know. Anything that she says, I believe is the truth… She's not a faker in any way."
And! "I thought she was really great on that road trip she did with Gayle when they were going into the camper and Gayle said, 'Let's spice up those lesbian rumors,'" O'Donnell said. "I was cracking up. Listen — she's pretty magnificent in every capacity and no, I don't think she's gay." Rosie also added: "It's just insulting to her integrity that people would consider that she was lying."
There you have it, a gay says Oprah's not gay. Breaking news. You've got your headline.
