Chevalier reached out to Gawker's Kitty Kelly, the author of "Oprah: A Biography," to reveal that he had been Oprah's lover in the '80s, before she dated longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham.
According to the scorned lover, he met Oprah, who was 32 at that time, when he appeared on her show in 1985. She was doing a segment on look-alikes, and he was there because he looked like Billy Dee Williams. She later told her producers to keep him backstage after the show or else she would fire them.
They went to lunch and began their relationship the very same day. Chevalier, who's seven years younger than the media mogul, said the age difference didn't matter.
Neal and Mozzie discuss building the antennae from the fractal found in the music box. Who knew this thing would get so complex? Mozzie's relishing the challenge to build it using 1940's technology, including vacuum tubes which were used in TV's, radios, and early computers. Neal: "I'm sure you will figure it out. Good work, Moz." Mozzie: "I don't like that expression…Well, work implies I have a job." I love Mozzie, but it must be for Neal to keep track of his quirks. Makes me feel sorry for Neal.
At the apartment, Neal yells for June. Is this typical or is Neal particularly excited? By the way, what happened to June's granddaughter from the pilot? You'd think she'd show up as the female eye candy. Instead, we welcome Billy Dee Williams as Ford.
Oprah will reveal the secret on Monday's show that she says "literally shook me to my core."

Kitty Kelly, Winfrey's unauthorized biographer, discovered Oprah had a younger half-sister named Patricia aka Bunny, who was put up for adoption by their mother,
In Kitty Kelly’s 2010 biography about The Big O Kelly alleges that Vernon Winfrey isn’t Oprah’s biological father and that she claims that she discovered who is the real father but was keeping it secret until Winfrey learns the truth herself so it’s possible that Monday’s show might be centered on that.
One thing though,
Talk about must reading!
Oprah herself doesn't seem to be too worried about the book since she happily poked fun at it while delivering a speech at the Matrix Awards (where her best friend Gayle King was being honored).
"Last week was a rough week for Gayle when a so-called biography came out," Oprah said. "Every day she's getting herself more and more worked up about all of my new daddies that are now showing up. New daddies who are saying, 'Hello daughter, call me, I need a new roof.' Well, this too shall pass."
We kind of think it already has.

Winfrey spoke Monday at The New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards, where she presented an award to pal Gayle King.
Winfrey skipped the red carpet but wasted no time when she took the stage bashing Kelly’s book, which includes reports the daytime diva abused drugs and questions the extent of Winfrey’s longtime claim of being sexually abused as a child.
Winfrey described King as a friend who “sometimes cares about my life more than I do,” and told the audience last week “was a rough one” for King when a “so-called biography came out.”

Success in such surgery is not unheard of. It didn't happen that way. The second surgery was also intended to restore my speaking ability. It seemed to hold together for awhile, but then, in surgeon-speak, also "fell apart."
A third surgery was attempted, using a different approach. It seemed to work, and in a mirror I saw myself looking familiar again. But after a little more than a week, that surgery failed, too. Blood vessels intended to attach the transplanted tissue lost function,
