Money guru Suze Orman say she wants to be known as the Money Lady, not the Money Lesbian.

During a conference call to discuss her upcoming six-part series America's Money Class, which is set to debut Monday, January 9 on cabler OWN, Orman, who came out gay in 2007, was asked by lesbian entertainment website why she doesn't talk much about her personal life.

“Well, you know, the one reason that up until now that, you know, you haven't seen a lot about my personal life is because I didn't want anything to get in the trouble or in the way of money,” Orman answered.

“And I didn't want people's minds to be troubled by the fact that – you know, that I'm gay and I've been with KT now for 11 years. So I always wanted to be known as the Money Lady, not, you know, the Money Lesbian,” she said, referring to Kathy Travis, whom she married in South Africa in 2010.

Orman added that Travis is included in her web site because “I love her so much.”

“I don't make a habit of talking about it only because the truth of the matter is people whenever they get on the phone with me they don't ask me about it. They ask me about money.”
