TV Shows Refusing to Interview Kitty Kelley, Author of New Unauthorized Bio of Oprah

Apr 12, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Many hosts of news programs ranging from CNN’s Larry King to Barbara Walters of "The View" are refusing to have Oprah Winfrey’s unauthorized biographer on their shows for fear of offending their friend, USA Today reports. "All said very openly that it was because of Oprah," writer Kitty Kelley says.

However, the article says, Kelley has been booked on the "Today" show and on Bill O’Reilly’s show this week to talk about "Oprah: A Biography."

Kelley, known for digging up tidbits her subjects would rather kept hidden, says that despite rumors of Winfrey having a relationship with best friend Gayle King, she believes Winfrey is "just asexual. She’s poured all of her energies into her career. And if she is [gay], she is never ever, ever going to come out. So relax, people."

  1. No fan of Kelly, but didn’t it use to be that most real biographies were “unauthorized”?
    I don’t like to casually toss out the word censorship as I subscribe to the notion that only the government can really censor things. However, if the end result is the same, does it really matter?
    And I have to wonder… is the reason that Oprah is brought up because they don’t want to offend her, or because the “O” machine has been influencing them.
    Unfortunately, either way it may be, the damage has been done as it makes me suspicious of their motives when reporting about anything.

  2. Kitty Kelley is lucky to be “famous” enough to be refused, not ignored. Most up and coming rising stars (like Leif Holt, producer/actor of “Lizzy”) would give a lot to be “important” enough to be refused, not ignored by Larry King.

  3. Not for nuthin’ but, over the past 25 years what is left to learn about Oprah? She puts all of her business out there for ratings.
    We know about her relationships, affairs, her molestation/abuse and by which family member(s), her abortion, hair loss, her weight loss/gain/loss/gain/ghain/gain, Steadman, her finances, failed businesses, lawsuits, settlements …
    Kitty, get a hobby ya old bag!
    Who wants to read a book that your research was done by watching her show and reading her magazine????
