O, The Oprah Magazine Has No Love for Stedman

By Chris O'Shea Comment

On the right is the April edition of O, The Oprah Magazine. It’s the first food issue, which is a great idea. Everyone wants to know what Oprah cooks, and inside the magazine she explains what she and her longtime partner, Stedman, cook together. It’s a cute little interview in which we learn that Oprah makes Stedman something called a “Love Sandwich.”

“It became the Love Sandwich because I first started making it just for Stedman,” Oprah explains. “I’ve only made it for a couple of other people, so if you’ve had me make the Love Sandwich for you, you have to be somebody I really care about.” Awww! Oprah really does have a strong connection with Stedman.

Too bad O, The Oprah Magazine doesn’t give a sh*t. See that hand? The barely visible one? That’s Stedman’s hand. That’s all poor Stedman gets.

O: “Listen Stedman, congrats on being Oprah’s main squeeze, but we didn’t even let Michelle Obama on the cover by herself, you better believe you’re not going anywhere near it.”

Stedman: “But the article is about us in the kitchen together!”

O: “We’ll put you on the fold-out, that’s it.”

Stedman: “Oh, c’mon.”

O: “Fine. We’ll show your hand on the cover, the rest on the fold-out.”

Stedman: “Alright! Now we’re talking, see my hand is—”

O: “Wash it first.”

Stedman: “Okay.”
