Do You Think She’ll Do It? Tina Turner’s Trying To Convince Oprah To Get Married
Oprah is not playing these marriage pressure games. The media mogul recently sat down with Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson and she proved she hasn’t budged on her unmarried woman status. In fact, Oprah said even when her good friend Tina Turner tried to convince her to walk down the aisle with her man of 27 years, Stedman, Oprah politely let her know, no thank you.
Here’s what she told Shaun Robinson when she asked whether she will leave this earth as a never-married woman:
“Yes…That’s my final answer. 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 gonna leave this earth as a never married woman, and that’s really okay with me. Stedman would tell you Shaun, if you ever interviewed him, he would tell you [that] had we married, we would not be together.”
When Shaun asked why that is, Oprah replied:
“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,’ 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.*laughs hysterically* I think it’s time for this interview to end.”
Let me find out Oprah is out in these streets! Lol But seriously, this isn’t the first time Oprah has stated that if she and Stedman were married they wouldn’t last, and after nearly three decades together, they must be doing something right. I wonder if she’ll ever get to the Tina Turner point, though, and decide to make it official. What do you think?
