Oprah says she and friend are not gay

- but have some very idiosyncratic ideas about their psychological health, Seinfeld and Bill Gates...

AP - Oprah Winfrey and her friend Gayle King want to be clear - they
are not gay

In the August issue of O, the Oprah Magazine, the US talk-show host explains that some people misunderstand her close friendship with King.

"I understand why people think we're gay," she says.

"There isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. So I get why people have to label it - how can you be this close without it being sexual?"

In a long article, Winfrey, 52, and King converse about their 30 years of friendship and "four-times-a-day phone calls."

The two friends say they would have no problem telling the public if
they were in a sexual relationship.

"The truth is, if we were gay, we would tell you, because
there's nothing wrong with being gay," says King.

Says Winfrey: "Something about this relationship feels otherworldly to me, like it was designed by
a power and a hand greater than my own.

"Whatever this friendship is, it's been a very fun ride."

Oprah may have a finger in nearly every publishing pie, but no one owns [T]he Colo[u]r Purple:

"Cadbury to appeal ruling it doesn't own purple"

"Cadbury Schweppes today lodged an appeal against a Federal Court ruling which said the multinational chocolate maker did not own the colour purple...

The Federal Court found Darrell Lea did not attempt to pass off its goods as Cadbury products, which is illegal under the Trade Practices Act.

'Cadbury does not own the colour purple and does not have an exclusive reputation in purple in connection with chocolate,' Justice Heerey... said."
