In July, Oprah Winfrey flew to Switzerland to see her good friend Tina Tuner walk down the aisle and say “I do” to her boyfriend of 27 years, Erwin Bach. After the lavish ceremony, the media mogul recently revealed that Tina tried to convince her to jump the broom next.
During an interview with Shaun Robinson of “Access Hollywood”, Oprah said she politely told her friend no thanks. When Robinson asked if she will leave this Earth as a never married woman, O quickly replied, “Yes!”
“That’s my final answer,” she said. “I think it’s really interesting that you would ask it because I thought about it again at Tina Turner’s wedding because Tina [said], ‘Oprah, you need to do this.’ Well it took [her] until 75 to do it. Now you’re telling me I need to do it. I was just thinking, would things really be different? I don’t think so.”
“I think my final answer is I’m going to leave this earth as a never married woman, and that’s really okay with me,” she continued. “Stedman would tell you Shaun, if you ever interviewed him, he would tell you [that] had we married, we would not be together.”
The 59-year-old businesswoman when on to say that she and her longtime partner have a very “untraditional relationship.”
‘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,’ hmmmm. I think there would be some other expectations of what a wife is and what a wife does. First of all you gotta come home sometimes,” she explained, laughing.
