Oprah is not taking any chances when it comes to the coronavirus, as she recently revealed that her longtime love Stedman Graham has been living in their guest house during the global pandemic.
“He’s at the guesthouse because you all know I had pneumonia late last year…I had just gotten off of antibiotics last week because I had a bronchial infection,” Mrs. Winfrey, 66, told her magazine, O, during an Instagram Live.
Ms. Winfrey said that while Stedman, 69, doesn’t have the virus, he had been traveling and was “one of those” who was “late to the party” with social distancing.
“‘I don’t see what everybody’s getting so upset about!’ That’s what Stedman was saying…and that’s why Stedman’s at the guest house!” she said.
“Stedman did not arrive from Chicago until Thursday, he had been speaking in St. Louis …he’d been on planes, so Stedman is like ‘What’s the procedure for coming home?’ The procedure is…you ain’t coming and sleeping in my bed!” Oprah added. “And literally, he goes, ‘I’m not?’ And I go, ‘Have you not been paying attention to the news? Social distancing does not mean you go and sleep in the same bed with the person! When you just got off American Airlines!'”
The couple, who are not married but have been together since 1986, have daily “love chats through the window, and Oprah brings her man breakfast and dinner every day.⠀⠀
“My friends say ‘Oh, isn’t Stedman upset?’ He’s really not. He’s happy to keep me safe,” she added.
