The former queen of daytime returned to talk television with her new traveling interview show. Her first guest, the American Idol judge and Aerosmith front man, took the host to his New Hampshire home on Lake Sunapee. He opened up about his drug addictions, jealousy among his band members, and admitted to having several life regrets.
There was a moment when Oprah confronted Steven over saying that the births of each of his four children changed him. She points out that he continued his rock and roll lifestyle after his children were born.

“You are [correct],” Steven said after Oprah asked him about the contradiction. “I had them, but obviously the drugs got in the way, the lifestyle got in the way.”
Then Steven began to elaborate on how special the sex with his children’s mothers was that he claimed created each of his four children – Liv with model Bebe Buell, Mia with model Cyrinda Foxe, and then Chelsea and Taj with his last wife, clothing designer Teresa Barrick.

“Don’t get me wrong, every one of those girls I love them dearly. When we made love, we cried and we had a kid,” he explains. “It was that heavy. It was magic.”
“It never happens like that all the time,” he continues. “Never cry as you climax. And it’s something I never told anybody. It was just those four times.”
