The TV star, who ended her talk show in 2011, said she does not miss having to do a show every day. "I don't miss that because you know you're only as good as the last show. You're always chasing the numbers," Winfrey said. "And this is the thing: The 25 years are a blur to me because I just worked." Winfrey said she is been enjoying life more since her show ended.
"For example, I'm going to do something I've always wanted to do. I wanted to do that truffle hunt, with the pigs and the dogs. So, I'm at least taking some time," she said.
Talking about her long time partner, Stedman Graham, Winfrey said, "As we grow together, as we get older together, he becomes a more affirming and more loving part of my life than he's ever been."
