Not like we believed the rumors that Oprah was going to have an $8 million wedding for Jen and Vince, but Oprah dedicated the opening segment of her show about setting the record straight. The episode was called Tall Tales and Legends. Oprah had her friend Jen call in so they could make fun of and debunk the recent tabloid rumors. They spoke about the Jill Rappaport incident. Jen then said, "[The rumors] are so unbelievable,... I guess, at a certain point, you have no other choice but to think it's funny."
Oprah then continues on to address the rumors about her and Stedman breaking up. She said:"We've been [together] since 1865 and never once broke up. And if we ever do, I'll tell you this, I promise that the night it happensâ€”if it ever happensâ€”I will come on TV the next day and tell you." Btw, before you tell me I made a mistake on the year, this is a direct quote from the Oprah site and I think she was trying to be sarcastic :)
I have to admit - I was pretty distracted by her straight hair and her not so flattering outfit. She seems to be going through something these days. It's not like Oprah to address tabloid rumors. She has laughed them off during interviews with people but I don't recall her opening up shows with this type of segment. I guess she made her point... and lots of headlines.
