As one can imagine, a lot can transpire throughout an over forty year friendship. Gayle King & Oprah Winfrey met in their 20s at a small TV station in Baltimore, and decades later this duo is comprised of two of the most sought out journalists in the biz. Through the highs and lows, Gayle and O have maintained an unbreakable bond.

One day the two were talking on the phone, and Oprah was expressing how sad she was.
“I was really down. I felt wounded by a betrayal,” the television mogul explained.
Gayle recalled the moment saying, “I had been talking to [Oprah] on the telephone. I could tell that she was very upset about something. And I literally, hung up the phone, and I said to the babysitter, ‘I’ve got to go. Is there any way you can spend the night?’”

Four hours later, the doorbell rang and she and Stedman [Graham] were at the door! She had been planning to come. I didn’t know that,” Gayle explained.
“We went grocery shopping — Stedman liked to cook spaghetti. We went grocery shopping, got all the stuff to make spaghetti. He cooked. I just kept saying, ‘I can’t believe you guys were here.’ That was something that I’ll never, ever, ever forget.”
