By now you've definitely heard about Raven-Symoné's controversial Where Are They Now? interview with Oprah.

In the special, Raven finally opened up about her relationship with AzMarie Livingston and her distaste for labels.

However, while abolishing said labels, she also made a few statements about not being African American that were bound to be taken the wrong way…

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayOprah Winfrey

Did we just hear what we think we heard?!

Oprah's bestie Gayle King might've just come out as gay on her show CBS This Morning! (Key phrase being might've)

In the clip (above), she and co-hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell are talking about choosing the right mate or partner…

Then, Gayle jokes that she and Charlie would be an ideal match — but immediately backtracks, saying what sounds a lot like she's saying, "I'm just kidding. I'm, I'm gay."

Sources from CBS have told TMZ that's not what she said, but we're on the fence.

We know Miz King has joked and shot down the coupling rumors with Oprah before, but her statement sounds like the Freudian slips to end all Freudian slips!

So now we ask U…

Did Gayle King say "I'm Gay" or "I'm…mmkay"???

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayOprah WinfreyRaven Symone

That's so Raven of her…

Sorry, we HAD to do it! LOLz!

Raven-Symoné is finally speaking out about her forever questioned sexuality in a new Where Are They Now interview with Oprah Winfrey!

In a clip from the sit-down, the former child star dishes about her infamous August 2013 tweet regarding a certain Supreme Court ruling, which so joyously read:

"I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you."

Most people thought this was the actress' official way of coming out, since rumors of her dating preference have been chatted about for years — but after the tweet, Raven continued to play coy for many months.
