Barbara Walters’ one-hour special on Oprah last night promised to feature the queen of talk “unplugged” — and it delivered. They touched on everything from her weight, to why she never had children, and her love for Stedman Graham. Here’s what we learned about Oprah… She doesn’t regret not having children Oprah told Walters her talk show took up so much of her life that she doesn’t think she would have been a good parent. She imagined that her children would accuse her of “neglect.” She doesn’t regret not marrying Stedman Graham “I am so glad I didn’t get married,” she said, “because with marriage there are expectations.” She added that Graham was “the love, the lover, the man, the partner, the mate” of her life. “I cannot say that I know of another man on this planet who could have lived this life with such dignity, with such grace and with such respect and humility and still hold his own, and be his own.” What a tribute. She is no longer overly concerned with her weight After years of publicly battling with her weight Oprah said she has stopped dieting and refuses to define herself by her size. “Myself is more than my thighs,” she said.
