Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King have been besties since…well, forever.

But Gayle's all grown up now and leaving OWN to make another station her own.

The last episode of The Gayle King Show will air Thursday. After that, if you wanna see the gal, tune in to the Early Show on CBS!

Yep, she landed a prime career spot! But no worries in the friendship arena. The split was an amicable one.

OWN's presidents Sheri Salata and Erik Logan say:

We are so happy for Gayle's opportunity of a lifetime. She’ll be a fantastic host for the new morning show on CBS and we wish her all the best. Although her show will not continue on OWN, we look forward to her joining us from time-to-time as her schedule allows.

Awww. Someone tumble her a picture of a warm and fuzzy little cat!

    It's a sinking ship, I don't blame her! Without Oprah's fantastic group of producers, her compass is off, and her ego has become ridiculous!



  2. 2

    Oprah just LOVES eating out GAYle's stinky , smelly twat!!!



  3. 3

    Gayle King is a horrible interviewer and an obnoxious presence. She gets jobs because she is Oprah's friend. She and Charlie Rose will be impossible to look at early in the morning.



  4. 4

    I actually liked her and was the only show I watched on OWN. At this point if she jumped the ship we might as well call the OWN network dead. I always watch the Early Show so it's a win for me. All the other morning shows are too loud and obnoxious.



  5. 5

    Gayle who? She is about as interesting as watching paint dry. CBS is desperate to improve thier morning show low ratings but sorry this wont help.

    THIS DUDE IS NOTHING BUT OPRAH'S BOYFRIEND, IF OPRAH GETS ANGRY WITH HER, NO ONE WILL CARE ABOUT HER



  7. 7

    This is a horrible move by CBS. It wont help at all. Gayle is a crappy interviewer. I cant believe that you can get a job because your best friends with Oprah.



  8. 8

    I don't think Oprah had anything to do with Gayle getting that job. I remember reading about Gayle & Oprah having some words about money. Maybe that's why she is leaving also OWN is not well anyway.

    That's not someone I would call a friend. Oprah started a new network and hired Gail King to bring something to the table and help Oprah and herself build OWN. I can tell you right now it was all about money. She wanted more, CBS has it and Oprah doesn't have the revenue from OWN to pay her what she wants right now. It could have been something really wonderful. Gail could have really made a name for herself but instead she abandons ship and used Miss O's back as a stepping stone. Talk about humpday… Watch her come crawling back to Oprah when this CBS gig doesn't work out.

    I also wanted to add that Gail King has a drug problem, and there have been many times where she wanted Oprah to smoke out with here because she was so stressed and Oprah gave in. That;s why Oprah had trouble with her eight because after smoking marijuana you have a voracious appetite.

    Her show on OWN was the worst talk show I have EVER seen, she is soooo boring and what's up with the "mommy hugs to you" bullshit line! pathetic, O is probably glad she's off her Network, she probably gave her the talk show on OWN because she is her friend now she has an out. Gayle will not make it on CBS that's for sure, O needs to revamp, get rid of all the depressing shit she has on now, stop with the repeats , so far the only thing worth watching on OWN is the ROSIE show!!
