Oprah Winfrey -- who built a billion-dollar empire persuading everyone from celebs to average Joes to reveal the truth about themselves -- is a big phony when it comes to her own past, an explosive new book charges.
Winfrey's relationship with longtime "love" Stedman Graham, her reputed dirt-poor upbringing in rural Mississippi, her rumored lesbian crushes on women such as Diane Sawyer -- all are stories she has manipulated for decades in the name of sensational ratings, according to writer Kitty Kelley's latest unauthorized biography "Oprah." The much-anticipated book details how: * Winfrey concocted stories about sexual abuse she suffered as a child -- and grossly exaggerated the poverty she was brought up in.
Oprah Winfrey has a lot of projects in the works, but a wedding isn't one of them.
After a tabloid claimed that she was tying the knot with her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, Oprah tweeted that those close to her were inquiring about the report.
A friend of Stedman’s revealed that Oprah had disclosed the wild idea of marriage to her longtime boyfriend at her California estate.
