John Tesh confirms he dated Oprah

Despite Oprah Winfrey's decades in the limelight, fans are still learning tidbits about the talk-show host and media mogul.

The latest: Former “Entertainment Tonight” co-host turned musician John Tesh has confirmed that he and the talk show dynamo dated years ago.

Tesh confirmed the tidbit to the New York Daily News after word got out that a new biography on Winfrey alleged the pair once lived together.

In the new book “Oprah,” author Kitty Kelley claims Tesh and Winfrey moved in together during the 1970s while both were young reporters living and working in Nashville, Tennessee.

"Oprah and I were cub reporters in Nashville nearly 40 years ago and we dated for a short time," Tesh told the paper.

Neither he nor Winfrey have commented on whether they were live-in loves or if their relationship ended - as Kelley’s book claims - after Tesh left due to the "pressure" of being involved in an interracial romance.

Over on “Entertainment Tonight,” Tesh’s former co-host, Mary Hart, has poked some fun at the story, reviewing clips of her visit several years ago with Tesh to the set of the Winfrey’s show in search of “clues” of a past love affair.

    So what? Oprah loves white people period. And they love her. She's always pulling white women close to her, and she loves gay(especially white) men. So if I were Tesch (and Stedman), that's the part of her persona I'd want to disassociate myself from.

    First off, so what if Oprah dated a white guy?

    I think what will shock me is that if she dated a dog, a horse, an alien or jesse james or she was mistress number 101st of Tiger. lol.

    She dated a man and that's normal and the fact that this thing between tesh and O happened by the time I wasn't even born yet, how this is relevant now?

    But I have a feeling that this book will be a hit. People just love to know more, and even if some Oprah diehards won't patronize this book, unwanted informations will still reach them mainly because this will be the most talked about thing in the days to come.
    With that being said, see you on the next Oprah threads...lol

    She is out here as one who is lifting up our human spirits. There is no dishonor when we learn from lessons in life. She is human and has only one judgement at the end of her days as I do and all of us who have faith in life, love, and grace from God.

    None of us deserve having any closet opened if we want to keep it closed until judgement day!

    I use to like Oprah. One time, however, she was in France and was pitching a fit because a department store would not open for her several hours past closing. Unlike the regular person she portrayed herself to be, I thought then that she just seemed too full of herself.

    I also did not like the way she chastised James Frey, the author on national television. Sure, he fabricated a memoir, and took advantage of the Oprah Book Club regiment, which is wrong, but Oprah could have just done ten minutes by herself and criticized the author and his dirty deed mercilessly. He still would have been pilloried in the press. But the great Oprah had the need to watch him sqirm on national t.v.

    They seemed not looking at each other as black and white. People's blood is red no matter what color their skin is.
    In 50 years the US will have mix matched families, including people who are feeling uncomfortably now on this issue. I mean their grand children and so on, will have a spouse whom they love despite the race factor. So accept what it is and thank God that we are alive and healthy.

    timeline doesn't make sense because 40 years ago she'd be 16 at most... more like 12 if she's claiming she's 52, I doubt they were reporters then working for a tv station between 12 and 16 years old.....

    This is so scandalous – techticles, too funny! And so begins the impending unraveling of the Great Miss "O" – – what else might we learn about her past – maybe she will put us out of our misery on her final show...kind of like a David Letterman kind-of thin, or maybe not. She would be welcomed back into the fold like "Tiger" – then again, maybe not. Poor Steadman – must suck finding out this way...

    @Paco...please post pics of you and your family immediately so we can all judge and pick you apart. Remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder=some people think you're ugly too! I rather look like Oprah than you and don't even know you, but her inside beauty is better than your outside beauty could ever be.

    I'm not a huge Oprahfanatic, but I respect her and her work, she opened the doors for many women, not just women of color!

    @ bea & omg....
    Oprah seems to have a lot of common sense and has always been a supporter of all things multi-cultural. You can think what you want about her, but it makes me sick when ignorant white people think she's too black and ignorant black people think she's too white. What the hell is that anyway?
    Is it because she's rich and proud to be black that you think Oprah would not date a white man? I'm trying to understand your way of seeing things? Bea/OMG Please explain.
    I'm really shocked how many people think Oprah would not date a white man or wanted to hide that fact from her viewers. I've been a fan of hers for years and never heard her say anything that would lead me to believe she would never date a blonde, blue eyed man.
    As a matter of fact, didn't she admit she went on a date with Roger Ebert.
    As a black woman, I am mostly attracted to black men. BUT, because my mother raised me with morals and values, I would never NOT have dated someone just because he was white, asian, hispanic, etc. or would I have dated a black man just because he was black!

    Bigbill327, Chit and Matt....you are too funny and I agree with all three of you. So what?????

    Let's face it, Kitty Kelley needs money and the only way she can make any is by writing an "unauthorized" book! Ever notice that? She wants to be back in the limelight again so she used "unnamed" sources to sell crap!!

    If that's the case, I could write a book too about anybody!!

    I don't know what's worse – that this is considered news (even if it is in the entertainment section) or that I actually took the time to click on the story. I never thought Oprah would be into white men (no I am not being racist – but seeing her gush over Obama was a suprise – and I am 99.9% sure had O been white she would not be so enthralled and present in his political life) It's not the politically correct thing to say, but I think there is validity to it. Oprah is the poster child for our superficial society
