When they were both cub reporters at a TV station in Nashville, former "Entertainment Tonight" host
John Tesh and daytime queen Oprah Winfrey were dating, reports the New York Daily News.
The story of their romantic relationship is one of the revelations in the new Kitty Kelley biography "Oprah." Kelley’s book claims that Tesh ended the relationship because of the problems involved in an interracial romance.
All Tesh would say about the claims is that he and Oprah "dated for a short time." Tesh then added, the article says, that "We remain friends to this day," Tesh told the News.
