Oprah: (on the gay rumors about Gayle King and herself) I understand why people think we're gay. There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. 'How can you be this close without it being sexual? We have known each other for more than 30 years and, I admit, we often speak four times a day on the phone when we're not in the same city. Something about this relationship feels other-worldly to me, like it was designed by a power and a hand greater than my own. Whatever the friendship is, it's been a very fun ride.
