Dayummm we didn’t know Harpo was getting it in like that!!!
Stedman Graham wooed Oprah Winfrey away from her former lover, Reginald Chevalier, who is speaking out exclusively to RadarOnline.com in his first interview since his fling with the talk show queen was revealed.
“When I was dating Oprah, I know for a fact that Stedman was courting her,” Reginald, 51, told RadarOnline.com. The Haitian filmmaker, who now lives in Los Angeles, began his live-in relationship with the media mogul when he appeared on her show in 1985, featuring him in a look-alike segment.
On the same day, the two began what would be a four-month-long affair. He was 25, and she was 32. Said Reginald: “I remember Stedman used to call, and I would answer the phone and she would tell me, ‘I don’t want to talk to him… I’m not here’.
“I was p*ssed and I told him she wasn’t there. But I wasn’t going to be malicious about it.” Chevalier reveals how he and Oprah dined with Michael Jordan and Danny Glover and also how the talk show queen brought up the subject of marriage.
Eventually, Oprah locked Reginald out of her home and her life, without even a phone call or in-person goodbye. She left a short and simple note, which he said read: “It’s not going to work out between us.”
