Being brutally honest with your best friend and getting away with it is the best—and it’s probably why you’re best friends.
The greatest BFF’s of all time—Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey—who we’ve watched sweetly love each other over the years, say the things we all say to our best friend, like ew, that shirt looks terrible on you.
And the always classy and thoughtful Oprah can be as uncensored as the rest of us, especially when it comes to giving Gayle advice. On Tuesday, Gayle wore a holiday-colored bib necklace (ok, it was large) on her CBS This Morning anchor hosting duties. While her loyal friend Oprah was tuned in, she definitely had an opinion on Gayle’s fashion choice.
Gayle posted a pic of herself on set on Instagram, explaining that while she was on air that Oprah sent a note to Gayle’s assistant saying: “plz tell Gayle I’m on treadmill & it’s hard to focus w/the circus around your neck.”
Gayle responded by writing, “I think she’s WRONG thoughts?”
Praise to the only woman (and human) who can call Oprah wrong—and live to tell about it.
A year ago, a similar diss happened when Gayle posted a pretty picture of herself on air, with the caption: “Oprah ust called & said tell your makeup artist waaaay too red on the lips today and I said proudly ‘I did that MYSELF’ Dead silence on the line ... Hello ??hello?…”
These two are perfect friends though, Oprah has said she watches Gayle on air daily—and what better fan is there than Oprah?
