Oprah among celebrities hit by mudslides

  Oprah among celebrities hit by mudslides Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and the Hadid sisters are among some of the celebrities affected by the deadly mudslides in California. Heavy rain in Southern California has triggered mudslides that have left at least 15 people dead and the whole town of Montecito.Some of the residents of the 9,000-strong town include A-listers, who have been sharing pictures of the damage and sending prayers to their neighbours on social media."What a day," Oprah wrote, sharing short videos on Instagram of gas fires, mudslides and helicopters."Praying for our community again in Santa Barbara. Woke up to this blazing gas fire.

On Oprah ’s sexuality: “I can only say what I saw and observed over the years . Gayle was more present than Stedman.” Potatoes are her downfall, potatoes, potato chips…any kind of potato. But you rarely saw Oprah fix a plate of food and eat it at the table with everybody else.

Her love: Oprah is in a 30 year relationship with her author partner but they have never tied the knot. Before: The TV queen sported a more fuller figure in previous years, but has now settled at a weight that she is happy with (pictured 2010).

It was 1986 when two very big things happened in the life of Oprah Winfrey.

First, she appeared on a brand new talk show titled The Oprah Winfrey Show. It would go on to become the highest rated daytime program in all of American history.

Second, the 32-year-old attended a charity event in Chicago and met a man named Stedman Graham.

He was handsome, standing at six feet six inches tall, and had recently founded the nonprofit organisation Athletes Against Drugs. 

Graham was established in public relations, and had a degree in social work as well as a master’s degree in education. Three years older than Winfrey, Graham had one daughter from a previous marriage.

It’s widely reported the pair were friends for a time before things developed romantically. And once they did, many of her friends and colleagues were sceptical.

  ‘A New Day Is on the Horizon.’ Oprah’s Powerful Golden Globes Speech Honours Women of #MeToo Movement On Sunday night, Oprah joined the long list of venerable Hollywood figures awarded the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Award.  ‘me too’ again.”It’s been a busy year for Oprah. She became a correspondent for 60 Minutes, continued her work as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, continued producing Greenleaf (in which she also acts) and Queen Sugar, and starred in the HBO movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks — not to mention swatted away rumors about a potential presidential run.

In an interview with People magazine in 1992, Winfrey said: “They figured if he looked like that, he either had to be a jerk or want something”. As time went on, it became clear there was no ulterior motive.

It took almost five years for Graham to leave a toothbrush at Winfrey’s apartment in Chicago. Although they were together, in many respects they led quite separate lives. The Oprah Winfrey Show had become the number-one talk show in the country, and she was heavily involved in humanitarian work.

Winfrey has said that during these years, she let her relationship with Graham take second place to her booming career. But she certainly doesn’t regret it.

In 1992, reports surfaced that Winfrey and Graham, who had by this point been dating for six years, were engaged.

Winfrey told People magazine that he proposed in the kitchen of their Indiana home. “I want you to marry me. I think it’s time,” he said.

The marriage, however, never eventuated.

At the time, Winfrey was writing a book and Graham said he felt uncomfortable, “having the wedding disturbed by, all these people asking me about it”.

On her podcast SuperSoul Sunday, the media mogul said at the time she wanted Graham to want to marry her.

But once he asked the question, she panicked.

He suggested they postpone the ceremony until the book was finished, and she agreed. Winfrey never released the autobiography, and they never discussed marriage again.
