Remember when Oprah Winfrey told Barbara Walters that Gayle King is so very many things to her, including the mother she never had?
Well, Gayle was moved to tears to hear that on TV, since it’s not the kind of thing you get up the nerve to vocalize in person.
But King just told USA Today that she’s not anything more intimate than that to Oprah, despite all the rumors.
She says the murmurings that they’re a lesbian pair used to bother her, but now she feels if she can’t change people’s minds, just let it be.
They’re just friends. Or sisters. Or mother/daughter. OK?
What do you people think? I trust your opinions. You’re the uncles I never had.
