Watch: Oprah Gets Emotional Over Relationship with Gayle — 'I Am Not a Lesbian'
Barbara Walters offers up a preview of her upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which she discusses her relationship with Gayle King, whom she calls "the mother I never had." Adding, "She is the sister everybody would want."
Oprah, who told herself she wouldn't let Walters make her cry, said that the reason those words brought her to tears is that she's never said them to Gayle herself.
"It's making me cry because I'm thinking about how much I probably have never told her that," she said.
Oprah also addressed the persistent rumors that she and Gayle are lesbians.
"I'm not a lesbian. I'm not even kind of a lesbian," she said. "And the reason why it irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's number one. Number two: why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life."
