Oprah:TeshThere’s a new upcoming tell-all Oprah Winfrey biography from Kitty Kelley that claims the talk-show queen enjoyed a 1970s romance with an unlikely live-in lover: John Tesh. Tesh and Winfrey shared her Nashville apartment until he got the hell on in the middle of the night, according to the first-ever look inside the book, obtained by the Daily News.

According to Kelley, the “social pressure” on an interracial couple in Tennessee at that time proved too much for Tesh to handle.

“He said one night he looked down and saw his white body next to her black body and couldn’t take it anymore,” another Tesh ex-paramour told Kelley.”

“He walked out in the middle of the night. … He told me he later felt very guilty about it.

Winfrey spokeswoman Angela DePaul said Saturday that Oprah was not commenting on the highly anticipated book. A phone call and an e-mail to Tesh’s spokespeople were not returned.

Well regardless, who’s having the laugh last now??? Oprah went on to make a gazillion dollars, can Tesh say the same?
