Wow! It's truly touching to hear her talk about their relationship!
You can really tell what a deep and valuable friendship these two share!
Oprah Winfrey recently opened up to Barbara Walters about longtime BFF Gayle King, and got so emotional that she started to cry when explaining the role that her friend has played in the talk show icon's life!
"She's the mother I never had. The sister everybody would want. The friend everybody deserves. I don't know a better person. It's making me cry because I'm thinking how much I probably never told her that. We're not like, 'Oh, you, you're my dearest friend . . . thanks.' The therapy I didn't have and don't need is because of my thousands and thousands of hours on the phone with Gayle. I get to release the day by talking it through. And I just realized she's the friend everybody should have. I have said we are not gay enough times. I am not lesbian. Not even kind of lesbian. That irritates me because it means somebody must think I'm lying. That's No. 1. No. 2, why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life."
Now we want to cry too!!!
Well-said, bb! And we agree!
You're very lucky to have such a close friend on whom you can rely!
Not enough people do!
