Oprah On Not Having Children: ‘My Kids Would Hate Me’


Oprah talks not having kids

Oprah’s got it all….except children. The media juggernaut covers The Hollywood Reporter for a second time and inside, the “Power 100″ honoree says not having children is one of the best decisions she’s made.

“If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them,” she says candidly.

Despite not having little Oprahs running around, she’s seemingly managed to live a full and happy life, building an empire and sustaining a 20+ year with partner Stedman.

“Gayle [now a mother of two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade Home Ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children,” she said. “While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King.”

Vixens: do you think Oprah could have achieved such success while being a mother?
