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.
