Well, look who’s in the
doghouse guesthouse after waiting too long to self-isolate! It’s Oprah’s long time paramour, Stedman Graham. Oprah ordered him to quarantine in the guesthouse of her $90 million Santa Barbara mansion. Stedman, 69 (noice), was still working and traveling as late as last Thursday. Oprah, 66, had pneumonia last year, and bronchial infection just last week, so there was no way she was letting Stedman’s irresponsible ass into their non-marital bed.

Though Graham doesn’t have coronavirus, per the outlet, Winfrey said he was “late to the party” and initially didn’t take matters as seriously.
“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 explained.
She continued, “Social distancing does not mean you go and sleep in the same bed with the person! When you just got off American Airlines!”
Oprah Magazine’s Instagram shared this video of Stedman pleading for food and mercy from the guesthouse window. Naw, he and Oprah are just shootin’ the shit from a safe distance. Stedman gets all his meals delivered to the guesthouse door, and he says his lockdown is “not bad”. Uhh, I’ll bet it’s not bad! Here’s some pics of the massive “guesthouse”. It has multiple fireplaces. The Sted Man’s doin’ just fine.

Today @oprah joined @ariannagab for an Instagram Live to fill us in on what she’s doing while she’s social distancing—and just like the rest of us, it’s made up of reading, binge-watching, and pancakes. But there was one person missing: @stedmangraham. Although he does not have the virus, the couple decided that Stedman should quarantine separately in the guest house after several recent flights and some business travel. We’re happy both Lady O and Gentleman Graham are both safe 🙏🏽 Tap the link in our bio for more!
As for Oprah? She’s enjoying her “alone time” (but wouldn’t she still be surrounded by staff?):
“I’m never bored, because I always have myself. I never feel alone, have never felt alone, because I just love being with myself,” she said. “So this is more time to be with myself without the guilt. Usually, it’s like, you’re with yourself but everybody wants to be someplace else. But there’s nowhere to be!”
Sigh. I’m so jealous of these celebs who are fine with “being by themselves” in their 23,000 square foot estates with pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, movie theaters, and personal grocery stores (I’ve never been to a mansion, okay?!). The rest of us are forced to share beds Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory-stylez as we feed on gruel from a trough and hose down each other’s dirty asses since the world is a tp-less tundra now.
