Checking in from @oprah’s House of Quarantine! Yesterday Lady O, @stedmangraham, and their OWLAG daughter-girls welcomed @gayleking and her @cbsthismorning team with a socially distant lunch! Remember to keep at least six feet apart (like these two besties) when hanging out with friends and family.
Oprah is clearly one to follow the quarantine rules. She and her long-time boyfriend, Stedman Graham, reunited after she made him self-quarantine in the guest house for 14 days.
Still, Oprah visited Stedman Graham multiple times and chatted with him from afar.

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!
Gayle King, host of “CBS This Morning” also shared her experience about being in quarantine while single. She admitted,
“It’s true, I’m single. And honest to God guys, I have never minded being single because my life is so full. I get to go to a lot of stuff. I know a lot of great people. So, I’ve never minded, but this is something… But now that this is it, it feels very, very daunting and actually very, very scary to me. Because I just think, there’s no end in sight. That’s what’s so troubling about this.”
“I’ve talked to single friends about this, Sheryl- men and women! I had a male friend of mine who said, ‘I’m even a loner, and this is very troubling to me.’ I think there is a good story there about why this bothers us.”
Gayle continued to explain her worries. She expressed,
“Just the thought that I don’t even know when I will see them in person is upsetting. I don’t know when Oprah and I will be able to visit is upsetting. So, all the people that I really cherish the most, I don’t know when that is going to be. That said, you know I sit here and knock on wood, healthy…people are dealing with a whole lot worse, and I don’t minimize that.”
