While promoting the movie, co-star Thandie Newton described Winfrey as "a very strong technical actress and it's because she's so smart. She's acute. She's got a mind like a razor blade. The made-for-television film was based upon a teleplay by Suzan-Lori Parks and starred Halle Berry in the lead female role. In late , Winfrey's company Harpo Films signed an exclusive output pact to develop and produce scripted series, documentaries, and movies for HBO.

Winfrey's high school sweetheart Anthony Otey recalled an innocent courtship that began in Winfrey's senior year of high school, from which he saved hundreds of love notes; Winfrey conducted herself with dignity and was a model student. Winfrey helped get Taylor a job at WVOL, and according to Mair, "did everything to keep him, including literally begging him on her knees to stay with her".
A love I will never forget. In the s, Winfrey had a romantic relationship with John Tesh. Biographer Kitty Kelley claims that Tesh split with Winfrey over the pressures of an interracial relationship. When WJZ-TV management criticized Winfrey for crying on air while reporting tragedies and were unhappy with her physical appearance especially when her hair fell out as a result of a bad perm , Winfrey turned to reporter Lloyd Kramer for comfort.
He was wonderful. He stuck with me through the whole demoralizing experience. That man was the most fun romance I ever had. I wasn't living with him. I'd never lived with anyone—and I thought I was worthless without him. The more he rejected me, the more I wanted him. I felt depleted, powerless. At the end, I was down on the floor on my knees groveling and pleading with him".
I would be afraid the minute I did it, something really good would happen and I'd miss it. According to Winfrey, her emotional turmoil gradually led to a weight problem: "The reason I gained so much weight in the first place and the reason I had such a sorry history of abusive relationships with men was I just needed approval so much.
I needed everyone to like me, because I didn't like myself much. So I'd end up with these cruel self-absorbed guys who'd tell me how selfish I was, and I'd say 'Oh thank you, you're so right' and be grateful to them. Because I had no sense that I deserved anything else. Which is also why I gained so much weight later on. It was the perfect way of cushioning myself against the world's disapproval. Winfrey later confessed to smoking crack cocaine with a man she was romantically involved with during the same era.
She explained on her show: "I always felt that the drug itself is not the problem but that I was addicted to the man. Winfrey was allegedly involved in a second drug-related love affair. Self-proclaimed former boyfriend Randolph Cook said they lived together for several months in and did drugs.
In the mids, Winfrey briefly dated movie critic Roger Ebert , whom she credits with advising her to take her show into syndication. In , before Winfrey's Chicago talk show had gone national, Haitian filmmaker Reginald Chevalier claims he appeared as a guest on a look-alike segment and began a relationship with Winfrey involving romantic evenings at home, candlelit baths, and dinners with Michael Jordan and Danny Glover.
Chevalier says Winfrey ended the relationship when she met Stedman Graham. Winfrey and her boyfriend Stedman Graham have been together since They were engaged to be married in November , but the ceremony never took place. Winfrey's best friend since their early twenties is Gayle King.
Since , when Winfrey played the therapist on an episode of the sitcom Ellen in which Ellen DeGeneres came out of the closet, Winfrey and King have been the target of persistent rumors that they were gay. So I get why people have to label it—how can you be this close without it being sexual?
All my stuff is out there. People think I'd be so ashamed of being gay that I wouldn't admit it? Oh, please. Winfrey has also had a long friendship with Maria Shriver , after they met in Baltimore. Oprah has been criticized for her friendship with Harvey Weinstein. Born in rural poverty, and raised by a mother dependent on government welfare payments in a poor urban neighborhood, Winfrey became a millionaire at the age of 32 when her talk show received national syndication.
Winfrey negotiated ownership rights to the television program and started her own production company. There has been a course taught at the University of Illinois focusing on Winfrey's business acumen, namely: "History Oprah Winfrey, the Tycoon". Forbes ' list of The World's Billionaires has listed Winfrey as the world's only black billionaire from to and as the first black woman billionaire in the world that was achieved in Oprah was raised a Baptist. In her early life, she would speak at local, mostly African American congregations of the Southern Baptist Convention that were often deeply religious and familiar with such themes as evangelical Protestantism , the Black church , and being born-again.
She was quoted as saying: "I have church with myself: I have church walking down the street. I believe in the God force that lives inside all of us, and once you tap into that, you can do anything. When you don't know what to do, do nothing until you do know what to do.
Because the doubt is your inner voice or the voice of God or whatever you choose to call it. It is your instinct trying to tell you something is off. That's how I have found myself to be led spiritually, because that's your spiritual voice saying to you, 'let's think about it. Oprah has stated that she is a Christian and her favorite Bible verse is Acts Winfrey was called "arguably the world's most powerful woman" by CNN and Time.
Winfrey is the only person to have appeared in the latter list on ten occasions. At the end of the 20th century, Life listed Winfrey as both the most influential woman and the most influential black person of her generation, and in a cover story profile the magazine called her "America's most powerful woman". As chairman of Harpo Inc. Winfrey was the only living woman to make the list. Columnist Maureen Dowd seems to agree with such assessments.
Interviewed by The Guardian in , Dowd said: "She is the top alpha female in this country. She has more credibility than the president. Other successful women, such as Hillary Clinton and Martha Stewart , had to be publicly slapped down before they could move forward. None of this happened to Oprah — she is a straight ahead success story.
I think Oprah Winfrey is the most powerful woman in the world, not just in America. That's — anybody who goes on her program immediately benefits through the roof. I mean, she has a loyal following; she has credibility; she has talent; and she's done it on her own to become fabulously wealthy and fabulously powerful. In , Winfrey was named the greatest woman in American history as part of a public poll as part of The Greatest American. She was ranked No.
However, polls estimating Winfrey's personal popularity have been inconsistent. Her highest rating came in  when she was statistically tied with Hillary Clinton for first place. Like a family member, it sits down to meals with us and talks to us in the lonely afternoons.
Grasping this paradox, She makes people care because she cares. That is Winfrey's genius, and will be her legacy, as the changes she has wrought in the talk show continue to permeate our culture and shape our lives. Observers have also noted the "Oprahfication" of politics such as "Oprah-style debates" and Bill Clinton being described as "the man who brought Oprah-style psychobabble and misty confessions to politics".
The November Ms. While Phil Donahue has been credited with pioneering the tabloid talk show genre, Winfrey's warmth, intimacy, and personal confession popularized and changed it. In the book Freaks Talk Back ,  Yale sociology professor Joshua Gamson credits the tabloid talk show genre with providing much needed high impact media visibility for gay, bisexual , transsexual , and transgender LGBT people and doing more to make them mainstream and socially acceptable than any other development of the 20th century.
In the book's editorial review, Michael Bronski wrote, "In the recent past, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgendered people had almost no presence on television. With the invention and propagation of tabloid talk shows such as Jerry Springer , Jenny Jones , Oprah , and Geraldo , people outside the sexual mainstream now appear in living rooms across America almost every day of the week.
Examples include a Time magazine article [ page needed ] on early 21st-century gays coming out of the closet at an increasingly younger age and on plummeting gay suicide rates. Gamson also believes that tabloid talk shows caused gays to be accepted on more traditional forms of media. In April , Winfrey played the therapist in " The Puppy Episode " on the sitcom Ellen to whom the character and the real-life Ellen DeGeneres said she was a lesbian.
The power of Winfrey's opinions and endorsement to influence public opinion, especially consumer purchasing choices, has been dubbed "the Oprah Effect ". Late in ,  Winfrey introduced the Oprah's Book Club segment to her television show. The segment focused on new books and classics and often brought obscure novels to popular attention. The book club became such a powerful force that whenever Winfrey introduced a new book as her book-club selection, it instantly became a best-seller; for example, when she selected the classic John Steinbeck novel East of Eden , it soared to the top of the book charts.
Being recognized by Winfrey often means a million additional book sales for an author. When author Jonathan Franzen 's book was selected for the Book Club, he reportedly "cringed" and said selected books tend to be "schmaltzy".

The Columbia, South Carolina , event on December 9, , drew a crowd of nearly 30,, the largest for any political event of The results suggest that in the sampled states, Winfrey's endorsement was responsible for the difference in the popular vote between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
In April , Winfrey spoke for more than 20 minutes at a fundraiser in Arlington, Virginia , for Lavern Chatman, a candidate in a primary to nominate a Democratic Party candidate for election to the U. House of Representatives. In , Winfrey began canvassing door-to-door for Georgia gubernatorial Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams. In early , Winfrey met with Mohammad bin Salman , the crown prince and de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia , when he visited the United States.

On the season premiere of Winfrey's 13th season, Roseanne Barr told Winfrey "you're the African Mother Goddess of us all" inspiring much enthusiasm from the studio audience.
The animated series Futurama alluded to her spiritual influence by suggesting that "Oprahism" is a mainstream religion in AD. Bush invited Winfrey to join a US delegation that included adviser Karen Hughes and Condoleezza Rice , planning to go to Afghanistan to celebrate the return of Afghan girls to school.

But Oprah is far more than a cultural force, she's a dangerous political force as well, a woman with unpredictable and mercurial attitudes toward the major issues of the day. In the history of my career, I've never received more hate mail — like 'Go back to Africa' hate mail. I was accused of being un-American for even raising the question.
A February series, in which Winfrey showed clips from people all over the world asking America not to go to war, was interrupted in several East Coast markets by network broadcasts of a press conference in which President George W. Bush and Colin Powell summarized the case for war. In , Winfrey began to endorse the self-help program The Secret.
The Secret claims that people can change their lives through positive thoughts or 'vibrations', which will then cause them to attract more positive vibrations that result in good things happening to them. Peter Birkenhead of Salon magazine argued that this idea is pseudoscience and psychologically damaging, as it trivializes important decisions and promotes a quick-fix material culture, and suggests Winfrey's promotion of it is irresponsible given her influence.
During a Webinar class, in which she promoted the book, Winfrey stated "God is a feeling experience and not a believing experience. If your religion is a believing experience [ Winfrey was named as the Person of the Year by animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals PETA for using her fame and listening audience to help the less fortunate, including animals.

The Wall Street Journal reported in that MBC 4 , an Arab satellite channel, centered its entire programming around reruns of her show because it was drawing record numbers of female viewers in Saudi Arabia.

His love and support for the media mogul have never wavered, even as reports of a potential presidential run in begin to pick up steam. However, dating a force like Winfrey doesn't come without its fair share of challenges. Over their year relationship, the couple has had to fight off rumors of a split, a cheating scandal, and more.
The partners, who have chosen not to marry, are very private about their relationship, but we've compiled a timeline of some of the highs and lows they've shared over the years. The couple had a daughter together named Wendy. Stedman reportedly met Oprah in at a charity event in Chicago, where he founded the nonprofit organization Athletes Against Drugs. The Oprah Winfrey Show premiered that same year. But according to Oprah, not everyone took a liking to the handsome, former college basketball player at first.
The claims were unfounded, and Gerber retracted the story days later. Joe Pixler did not choose to reject this story after hearing all the facts. In , Oprah shared with People that it wasn't until that Stedman began to keep "a toothbrush at my apartment. Oprah opened up about the details of Stedman's proposal in a People cover story that featured the headline "Oprah's Engaged! The proposal reportedly took place in their kitchen of their Indiana home. The engagement was kept a secret, but in less than a month, Oprah shared the news with a local television station, and the story spread nationwide.
However, the marriage never came to fruition and the reason why has not been revealed. In , Oprah also decided not to print an autobiography she was reportedly working on. A nwi. I'm stepping out. I know there is going to be a backlash at some point. A post shared by Oprah oprah. After more than two decades together, the public continued to question why Stedman and Oprah never walked down the aisle.
However, Oprah made it clear that the relationship was better off as is because the mogul's lifestyle and Stedman's expectations for a wife did not match up.

I don't know anybody. I don't really even know my mother," Winfrey told HuffPost in Before the future media mogul could get settled in Wisconsin, she was sent to live with her dad — or, rather, a man she presumed to be her dad — a coal miner named Vernon Lee, in Tennessee, before eventually returning to live with her mom once again.
The constant changes in her surroundings definitely took a toll on her, but Winfrey told the publication that it was her faith that helped her push through. Born to teenage parents who conceived her after a one-time fling, Oprah Winfrey's early years were spent on her grandmother's aforementioned rural Mississippi pig farm, according to the New York Post , and life was less than ideal. She and her grandmother didn't have much money , so their home was lacking common amenities.
Running water and electricity were scarce. However, Winfrey reportedly enjoyed the wide open spaces that were available, as it was in direct contrast to the tiny apartment she shared with her mother and two half-siblings, Patricia and Jeffrey. As with most incidents in her early life, abuse sadly crept its way back into the forefront.
This time, it was physical. And I was playing in the water with my fingers, and my grandmother had seen me out the window and she didn't like it," Winfrey once told David Letterman in via News. And then when I put on my Sunday dress, I was bleeding from the welts. And then she was very upset with me because I got blood on the dress So then I got another whipping for getting blood on the dress. These days, Oprah Winfrey has an entire team of stylists who get her all dolled up in gorgeous, red carpet-ready gowns, and her work closet at Harpo Studios in Chicago is filled to the brim with designers duds.
But this self-made multi-billionaire didn't always have a collection of pricey, luxury goods to choose from. Growing up in extreme poverty, Winfrey had no choice but to wear hessian overalls made out of potato sacks. Her untraditional, makeshift outfits caused her to be crowned with the heartless nickname of "Sack Girl," according to The Guardian. When describing her childhood on the farm, Winfrey told David Letterman via News.
The Guardian reported that, instead of having the typical farm animals as her pets, Winfrey had pet cockroaches instead. And since her family couldn't afford a box filled with toys for her, she made her own babydoll from a dried corncob. During the time she lived with her mom, Oprah Winfrey experienced intense colorism — a term used to describe intra-group prejudice that favors lighter skin. Recalling the time she arrived at the home where her mother was renting a room, Winfrey told HuffPost , "I remember the first night entering into that house and being told that I wouldn't be able to sleep with my mother and I wouldn't be able to sleep inside the house.
I was put outside to sleep there. Winfrey was confused at first, but she later realized exactly what was going on. I could tell instantly when I walked in the room that she didn't like me. It was because of the color of my skin," the talk show queen explained. Instead of putting up a fight, the young Winfrey obliged and found solace within her sleeping arrangements, looking toward her faith for comfort. Oprah Winfrey's usually in the driver's seat when it comes to grilling her guests and getting to the bottom of important issues on The Oprah Winfrey Show and her later endeavors.
However, the tables were turned when the talk show maven sat down for an interview with David Letterman and his Distinguished Professional Lecture and Workshop Series via the Daily Mail. It was at this time that she opened up about her traumatic childhood, including the brutal rape she survived when she was just 9 years old. Winfrey peeled back the layers of that experience even further in an issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.
As I trembled and cried, he took me for ice cream and convinced me not to tell — and for 12 years, I didn't," she wrote. It wasn't the last time she would be violated as a child. Winfrey had told Letterman that she was also molested by various relatives when she was between the ages of 10 and After being sexually abused numerous times during her formative years, Oprah Winfrey's self-esteem and self-worth were beyond crushed.
The Oprah Winfrey Network CEO later wrote an emotional piece for her publication, O, The Oprah Magazine , and explained, "It was a very long time before I understood how completely my life had been changed — how in one instant, I was no longer a child. It's the weight of the secret you feel you have to keep, the person you have to become so no one will discover what you're hiding. The traumatic experiences caused Winfrey to confuse "mistreatment with love.
While chatting with CNN 's Piers Morgan in January , Oprah Winfrey revealed that, after getting pregnant at 14 years old, she tried to drink laundry detergent in an attempt to terminate the pregnancy via New York Daily News. At the time, the future actress and talk show host tried to make sense of the turn her life had taken at an early age.
Tragically, Winfrey would later lose her child shortly after giving birth more on this below. A loss, of course, is often accompanied by some form of grief, but looking back on the way everything played out, Winfrey was able to find the silver lining. I wouldn't have been a good [mom] for babies. I don't have the patience. However, the marriage never came to fruition and the reason why has not been revealed.

According to a People article , when the two began dating, Graham "commuted on weekends from a modest High Point apartment to her lavish condo on Chicago's Gold Coast. Graham started spending more time in Chicago working with the non-profit he started, Athletes Against Drugs.
He called in to see if Winfrey would dish what she had told her best friend, Gayle King, about their relationship. Every time I see her in person, I'm wondering what she knows about me. A shocked Winfrey quickly ended the phone call, saying, "OK, honey. I'll tell you later, OK. Thanks for calling. The couple weathered tabloid storms, including when a Chicago columnist shared a false rumor that Graham was cheating with Winfrey's hairdresser. According to the Chicago Reader , the columnist, Ann Gerber, quickly retracted the story and apologized to the couple.
At the time, Graham was renting an apartment a few blocks away from Winfrey's, according to the People article. When Winfrey went outside to meet him after his arrival, he popped the question. When Winfrey returned to the kitchen, she reportedly told King, "You are not going to believe this, Stedman just proposed! The couple kept their engagement a secret for a few weeks, until Oprah shared the news during a November appearance on King's TV show.
In her O Magazine article about her relationship with Graham, Winfrey recalled the immediate joy of being proposed to and then realizing she preferred her relationship with him as it was. I wanted to be asked. I wanted to know he felt I was worthy of being his missus, but I didn't want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work. My life with the show was my priority, and we both knew it.
As the founder, president and chief operating officer of S. He said they each have their own passions and visions that make them individuals. That's her life. I just support her in her life. And she supports me in my life," he said.
Wendy, Graham's daughter from his previous marriage, gave birth to a daughter named Cadence in May , according to the Daily Mail. A false magazine report led many people to believe that Winfrey and Graham had secretly tied the knot.
