Another tabloid report that caught Oprah's eye claims that Stedman, her partner of more than 20 years, walked out on her after a bitter fight. The photos that accompany the story show Oprah dropping Stedman off at the airport. What was she really saying to him in the picture? "I was asking him, 'Are you sure you have your ticket?,'" she says.
Oprah assures her audience that if she ever has real relationship troubles, they'll hear it from her before reading about it in the supermarket checkout line.
"Here's the real deal," Oprah says. "We've been [together] since, like, 1865 and never once broke up. And if we ever do, I'll tell you this, I promise that the night it happens—if it ever happens—I will come on TV the next day and tell you."
