Oprah

Oprah Winfrey is setting the record straight about her long, luscious locks.

Answering questions from her "Tweeple" (fans on her Twitter) about the authenticity of her flowing tresses on Friday's show, Winfrey let a never-before-seen photo of herself do the talking.

"Am I wearing a weave? Everybody's like, 'Oprah, we love your weave.' This is not a weave; this is my hair," Winfrey said on Friday's show before unveiling a photo of herself with her naturally puffy 'do.

"This is what my hair looks like. This is me before it gets pressed and curled in the morning," she continued.

She also set the record straight on Twitter, writing "no i'm not wearing a weave" during Friday's taping. (Follow TVGuide.com on Twitter too.)

Apparently not many are privy to seeing the un-coiffed talk-show queen. The picture prompted Gayle King, Winfrey's Friday cohost and best friend, to yell "Yowza!" while the audience gasped and cheered.
