John Tesh and Oprah: It’s True
It’s true that Oprah and John Tesh used to date. The 57-year-old Tesh says he and the 56-year-old Winfrey dated while working in local news in Nashville, Tenn.
According to Kitty Kelley’s new unauthorized biography of Oprah Winfrey, in the 70’s Oprah slept with musician and television celebrity John Tesh. However, Kitty’s tell-all book also reveals that John Tesh bolted on lover Oprah Winfrey in middle of the night.
The book reports that the 6′ 6″ tall Tesh said one night that “he looked down and saw his white body next to her black body and couldn’t take it anymore,” another Tesh ex-paramour told Kelley.
John has not commented on the book’s explanation for their separation, but did tell “Entertainment Tonight” he and Oprah remain good friends.
