Oprah: Stedman is in self-isolation in our guesthouse


NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Oprah Winfrey is self-isolating at her Santa Barbara home but that doesn't mean she and beau Stedman Graham are cozying up -- in fact, quite the opposite.

In an Instagram Live story she did with O, The Oprah Magazine over the weekend, Winfrey revealed that Graham is staying in their guesthouse.

“He’s at the guesthouse, because you all know I had pneumonia late last year…I had just gotten off of antibiotics last week, because I had a bronchial infection,” Winfrey said.

While Graham does not have the virus, Winfrey said he was “one of those” who was “late to the party” about realizing the need to social distance as the coronavirus pandemic spread through the country and the world.

“‘I don’t see what everybody’s getting so upset about!’ That’s what Stedman was saying…and that’s why Stedman’s at the guest house!” Winfrey said.

“Stedman did not arrive from Chicago until Thursday, he had been speaking in St. Louis…he’d been on planes, so Stedman is like ‘What’s the procedure for coming home?’ The procedure is…you ain’t coming and sleeping in my bed!” Winfrey added. “And literally, he goes, ‘I’m not?’ And I go, ‘Have you not been paying attention to the news? Social distancing does not mean you go and sleep in the same bed with the person! When you just got off American Airlines!'”
