Oprah and John Tesh Briefly Dated, Lived Together, New Book Claims
A new biography of the talk-show queen claims Tesh broke it off because he couldn’t deal with pressures of being an interracial relationship in 1970s Nashville.
Oprah Winfrey and John Tesh were once a live-in couple? Get out of here!
In one of the more eyebrow-raising excerpts from Kitty Kelley’s new biography of Oprah, the author reports the talk show queen and Tesh, a 6’6” composer, syndicated radio host and longtime host of ET, were a romantic item in Nashville in the 1970s, according to the New York Daily News.
The News said the book – due out Tuesday – reports they shared an apartment there until Tesh bolted in the middle of the night, unable to take the social pressure of being half of an interracial couple.
On Monday, Tesh told the News, “Oprah and I were cub reporters in Nashville nearly 40 years ago and we dated for a short time.”
He added, “we remain friends to this day.”
Oprah Winfrey was born on January 29th, 1954
1 + 29 + 2+0+1+0 = 33 = her personal year (from January 29th, 2010 to January 28th, 2011) = Be brave. Be courageous. Taking a stand. Standing up for yourself. Standing your ground. Standing firm. Having a strong backbone. Not backing down. Not caving in. Not letting people walk all over you.
John Tesh was born on July 9th, 1952 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Tesh
July 9th, 1952
7 + 9 +1+9+5+2 = 33 = his life lesson = Be brave. Be courageous. Taking a stand. Standing up for yourself. Standing your ground. Standing firm. Having a strong backbone. Not backing down. Not caving in. Not letting people walk all over you.
One’s life lesson number stands for themself. John Tesh’s life lesson is 33 (7 + 9 +1+9+5+2 = 33). That it is Oprah’s 33 year indicates that John Tesh (33 life lesson) is a part of her year, and indeed he is mentioned in the book about Oprah.
