Gayle King is looking for love with the main requirement—can he not be married please?
Sound crazy? It’s not.
The CBS This Morning co-anchor reveals that she’s learned to ask a new question of potential suitors: “Are you married?”
“I went on a date recently, I’ve been out with somebody maybe three or four times and now I feel I have another dating question to add to my repertoire, in addition to, ‘Do you think OJ Simpson is guilty?’ — which is one of my dating questions,” Gayle, 62, said on Harry. “It never occurred to me if somebody asked you out and you’ve been on a couple of dates, they are not wearing a wedding ring. It never occurs to me to say, ‘Are you married?’ It really didn’t.”
Well, it happened to Gayle. Somebody call Oprah. Do not mess with Gayle.
“So I’m out to dinner and he’s talking and then he said something about ‘my wife’ and I said, ‘Wait, wait, wait, your wife? You have a wife?’ He goes, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Does she know you’re here?’ He said, ‘But, we’re separated.’ I said, ‘Oh, you’re getting a divorce.’ He said, ‘No, we’re separated, we live in the same house, it hasn’t been good for a really long time.’ And I was like, ‘Check, please, I know that story.’”
In June 2016, Gayle revealed she caught her ex-husband, former Connecticut Assistant Attorney General William Bumpus, in bed with another woman in 1990.
“I was married to a cheater . . . I went to marital counseling. I have been divorced since 1993, so I’m all healed and everything. I have worked it out. I’m not bitter. I’m OK. I’m really OK.”
She's OK. She's Gayle.
