O, The Oprah Magazine Has No Love for Stedman

On the right is the April edition of O, The Oprah Magazine. It’s the first food issue, which is a great idea. Everyone wants to know what Oprah cooks, and inside the magazine she explains what she and her longtime partner, Stedman, cook together. It’s a cute little interview in which we learn that Oprah makes Stedman something called a “Love Sandwich.”

“It became the Love Sandwich because I first started making it just for Stedman,” Oprah explains. “I’ve only made it for a couple of other people, so if you’ve had me make the Love Sandwich for you, you have to be somebody I really care about.” Awww! Oprah really does have a strong connection with Stedman.

Too bad O, The Oprah Magazine doesn’t give a sh*t. See that hand? The barely visible one? That’s Stedman’s hand. That’s all poor Stedman gets.

O: “Listen Stedman, congrats on being Oprah’s main squeeze, but we didn’t even let Michelle Obama on the cover by herself, you better believe you’re not going anywhere near it.”

Stedman: “But the article is about us in the kitchen together!”

O: “We’ll put you on the fold-out, that’s it.”

Stedman: “Oh, c’mon.”

O: “Fine. We’ll show your hand on the cover, the rest on the fold-out.”

Stedman: “Alright! Now we’re talking, see my hand is—”

O: “Wash it first.”

Stedman: “Okay.”
