John Tesh Confirms Oprah Winfrey Relationship

Before Stedman became Oprah's main man, the talk show queen dated ... John Tesh?!

Yesterday, it was just a laughable allegation made by an author who's currently being shunned on her book tour for daring to write an unauthorized biography of the big O.

But today, Tesh went ahead and confirmed that he romanced Oprah while they were both working in local news in Nashville in the 1970s. And Oprah thanks you.

The former Entertainment Tonight host-turned-Christian music artist should probably not plan on making a promotional appearance on Oprah anytime soon.
