The latest round of gossip claims Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King had a falling out because of Stedman Graham! However, it's important to note that this could really just be gossip since it comes courtesy of the National Enquirer.
According to the tabloid paper, Gayle became upset when Oprah let her know that Oprah was going to move her long-time fiancÃ© Stedman into her California home instead of Gayle. This seems like shocking and ridiculous news. Anyhow, an anonymous source (they're always anonymous, aren't they?) stated that when Winfrey broke the news to King:
"Gayle flipped and yelled, 'What about me?! You've got to choose - it's Stedman or me!' Oprah coolly shrugged her shoulders and told Gayle to deal with it. Then she walked away. Gayle is devastated that Oprah has dumped her in favor of Stedman. With Oprah and Gayle, Stedman was always the one who felt like the third wheel. Now there's been a role reversal. Stedman has patiently stood by Oprah - he's her rock. With her professional life in transition, Oprah feels she needs Stedman more than ever. Gayle feels abandoned. She never thought this day would come."
The source claims that Winfrey and King were initially suppose to head out to Los Angeles to live at Winfrey's 42-acre Montecito residence while focusing on Oprah's OWN network. However, even if this report were true, it would seem highly unlikely that Oprah and Gayle would end a friendship that's spanned more than three decades just because of a tiff.
Seriously, King doesn't seem like the type of person who would be so jealous over Winfrey's relationship and bond with Graham that she'd end a very precious friendship because of it. Chances are the women's bond with each other is stronger than ever. Gayle has stood by Oprah during rougher times and vice versa. The only three-way war going on between Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King and Stedman Graham seems to be the one created by tabloid sites such as the National Enquirer.
