December 12, 2013 – Oprah Winfrey Talks About Childlessness, Denies Nervous Breakdown

Oprah Winfrey Doesn’t Like Having Children “My Kids Would Hate Me”

In this recent interview with Hollywood Reporter, the 59-year-old media mogul talked at length on why she chose to remain childless and how her busy lifestyle has hindered her from having her own kids.

Oprah Winfrey also denied reports that she had a nervous breakdown in 2012 and many other issues.

Interview excerpts below:

“If I had kids, my kids would hate me,” she told the paper, “They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah Show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”

“I was day dreaming about how I could be Martin Luther King’ hence kids were out of the picture. “I never had a nervous breakdown,” she explained, “I thought that was such sensational exploitation.”

“When you’re the most successful person in your family, in your neighborhood and in your town, everybody thinks you’re the First National Bank,’ she says, “And you have to figure out for yourself where those boundaries are.

“I got to the point where nobody ever asked me for anything less than $5,000. I felt pressured for a long time to say yes, because I thought, “I can’t lie and say I don’t have it.

“My salary is printed in the paper,”‘ I’ve bought more houses and cars than I can even tell you.”

After 21 years of dating, Oprah Winfrey is still engaged to her 62-year-old boyfriend, Stedman Graham.

  5. THERE ARE SOME SECRET, THESE SECRECY WILL ONLY BE KNOWN TO US WHEN SHE DIE, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT SHE WAS NOT TELL US THE TRUTH

    ANYWAY, EITHER SHE HAVE KID OR NOT, AT LEAST SHE HAVE ACHIEVED HERSELF, BECAUSE THE ONLY ACHIEVEMENT IN LIFE IS WHAT YOU ARE YOURSELF.

    HERE IS AN OPEN LETTER TO OPRAL WILFRED

    I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU , THIS IS YOUR LOVELY LOST AND FOUND DAUGHTER. HA HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WOW H HA

  6. I THINK THE ISSUE OF OPRAH AND NOT HAVING KIDS OF HER OWN IS an emotional topic…. she might not or might be telling the whole truth about this, we are not to judge…. ” THE OPRAY WINFREY’S CHILDLESS ISSUE” IS A T-SHIRT THAT HAS BEING WORN, TAKEN OUT, BURNT AND TAKEN TO THE DUSTERS…. I DON’T THINK SHE IS THE ONLY CHILDLESS WOMAN IN THE WORLD TODAY, IT IS NOTHING UNIQUE, ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT SEEM UN-NATURAL…IN THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE WE ALL LIVE IN, WE STAND AT DIFFERENT BUS-STOPS, WE ENTER THE TRAIN OF LIFE AT DIFFERENT STAGES, AND COME DOWN AT DIFFERENT POINTS… BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE ARE ALL TRADERS, IT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU MAKE YOUR TRADE. WHEN NIGHT TIME COMES WE PACK OUR GOODS AND GO HOME… WE CAME WITH NOTHING TO THIS WORLD AND LEAVE WITH NOTHING EXCEPT FOR OUR SOULS, THERE WE STAND BEFORE HIM GIVING ACCOUNT… WHATEVER WE CHOSE TO BE IN THIS WORLD , WE SHOULD ALL STRIVE TO DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR HUMANITY, BECAUSE OUR LORD FATHER WILL ASK…. MY CHILD WHAT GOOD DID YOU DO FOR MANKIND…. WHAT WILL BE YOUR ANSWER … I WAS CRITICIZING OPRAH WINFREY?

  7. She have her reason which is personally,if she want ten babies at once millions of people she help will donate their kids for free.if she is barren as you think she can get team of fertility doctors to treat even if it involve going out of this world.she gave her reasons let her be.

  8. Mama Winfrey loves children so much not to suffer them; she prefers not to have….them. And emmmm….. Oga Stedman Graham, wat ve ‘ u been waiting for? You be white man abi. Come Sted’ do something.

  9. Hmmm… I think Oprah’s reasons are quite understanding especially in a setting like hers where children ain’t a priority in life… But I bet, no typical African will do that because it’s every African woman’s desire to have children some day… She’s entitled to her lifestyle and I say kuddos to her.. She’s indeed a woman of substance
