Oprah Moving Close

December 19, 2008

The NY Post is reporting that Oprah Winfrey is looking to buy a house in DC.  They say she wants to be as close to Barack Obama as possible.

This is just too odd.

I don’t want this column to turn into a gossip rag, but back in Sept I did wonder publicly about their relationship.  I quoted Oprah’s former boyfriend Steadman as saying: “Michelle hated Oprah being do involved, was jealous of [Oprah’s] power and resented [Oprah’s] blatant flirting with Barack. Michelle even warned her husband if he didn’t start backing away from Oprah, it would put a serious crack in their marriage.”

Barack needs to be careful.  The press would have a field day if this were anything more than a good friendship.
