Oprah Winfrey is one very rich bachelorette, and it will remain that way forever. The media mogul has been dating Stedman Graham for a very long time, but the wedding bells still aren't ringing.
Talk show legend and actress Oprah Winfrey(R), has been dating Stedman Graham (L) since 1986.
"Will you leave this earth as a never-married woman?" Access Hollywood asked the 59-year-old former daytime talk show host.
"Yes," she answered, laughing. "I think that's my final answer."
She revealed, though, that the idea of getting married crossed her mind again at Tina Turner's wedding.
"Because Tina was like, 'Oprah, Oprah, you need to do this. You need to do it.' It took her 75 to do it and now you tell me I need to do it," she said of her famous singer friend's wedding to German music producer Erwin Bach in July.
I was just thinking, 'Well, okay, would things really be different? And no, I don't think so. I think my final answer is I'm gonna leave this earth as a never-married woman. And that's really okay with me."
She continued to explain, "If you ever interviewed him (Stedman), he would tell you that had we married, we would not be together today. Because he's a traditional man and this is a very untraditional relationship.
"I think it's acceptable as a relationship, but if I had the title 'wife,' I think there would be other expectations for what a wife is and what a wife does. First of all, you've got to come home sometimes."
Oprah and Stedman have been together since 1986. They had not only toyed with the idea of getting married, but they were actually engaged in 1992. However, they decided not to get married later on.
While Oprah has never been married, Stedman had. He has one child with former wife Glenda Graham.
They may not have a traditional relationship, but the couple still find time to enjoy simple things together. Recently, the multi-billionaire revealed that one of her favourite things to do is to make blueberry-lemon pancakes for Stedman on Sunday mornings.
"Never fails to delight him - like he's 7 every time," she wrote on Huffington Post.
