Oprah recently did an interview with Oprah Magazine’s digital director Arianna Davis, explaining why she is keeping her distance from her longtime boo Stedman Graham.
“He’s at the guest house 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,” she explained.
She also added that Stedman was “one of those” that didn’t take the outbreak as seriously as others when it first began, leading him to be a bit more casual with his travels.
“‘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 added.
She continued, “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! And literally, he goes, ‘I’m not?’ And I go, ‘Oh no, it doesn’t work that way. 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!'”
Winfrey said while she’s taking staying at home “very seriously,” she hasn’t gone stir-crazy.
“I’m enjoying this time to be with my thoughts,” she said.
