Ok…somebody shoot me now! Oprah Winfrey, known for being frank and open about her personal relationships and bad choices in men back in the day has been outed for using Crack cocaine. “Outed” may be a poor choice of words though since the television diva has confessed on many occasions to using drugs but she’s never revealed what her drug of choice was.
From a 1995 episode of her show, Oprah revealed:
“In my 20’s, I’d done this drug and I know exactly what you are talking about.” She said the drug use occurred while she was an anchorwoman on a television news show.
“It’s my life’s great big secret. It was such a secret because–I realize (with) the public person I have become–if the story ever were revealed, the tabloids would exploit it and what a big issue it would be.”
She went on to explain, “But I was involved with a man in my 20s who introduced me to the same drug that you’ve been talking about and, like Patrice, I always felt that the drug itself is not the problem but that I was addicted to the man.” She admitted: “I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t have done for that man.”
O’s Crack partner and toxic love interest Randolph Cook, has decided to write a book about their relationship and accuses Oprah of introducing HIM to cocaine.
“We smoked at least a couple of times a week. Sometimes we would smoke up until her limo was waiting to take her to the studio to perform her show…”
