Gayle King wants you to know that she had Oprah Winfrey's full blessing to ditch her show on OWN in favor of a hosting gig on CBS' The Early Show.
On top of that, she also wants you to know that Wendy Williams is a liar!
On Friday's episode of The Wendy Williams show, the talk show host read a letter allegedly written by Oprah that addresses rumors of a falling out between the two BFF's, reading:
“I know there’s been some speculation that Gayle and Oprah had a falling out because Gayle will be hosting the new morning show on CBS. I wanted to make sure everyone knows that there is only happiness for Gayle and this wonderful opportunity.
P.S. Stay black!"
The letter not only reveals that the Big O refers to herself in the third-person and Wendy Williams may be in danger of suddenly changing races, but more importantly, Oprah has no animosity toward Gayle.
We say, "Yay!" Hosting The Early Show was a great opportunity for Gayle and we're glad she took it.
During an appearance on a radio show Friday morning, Gayle threw her own two cents into the ring to address the nasty rumors AND the letter Williams read on her show, saying:
"The letter that I heard Wendy read - I didn't see it - I know Oprah never wrote a letter to Wendy. I said [to Winfrey] 'I'm getting all these messages that you wrote a letter to Wendy,' and she goes, 'Gayle, you know more than anybody knows that that's not true,' number one. Number two, when Wendy was saying, 'You know, I think it's gonna put a dent in their friendship?' When this opportunity was presented to me - and make no mistake; it is an opportunity - the first people I talked to were Oprah, my son and my daughter. And I said, 'I don't know; I don't know. They approached me, but I don't even know if I should entertain it,' … [Winfrey} said, 'Are you kidding? This is so what you do, the news is what you love … you would be crazy to pass it up!'"
If we're reading that correctly, it looks like Gayle and Oprah are as tight as could be, while Wendy is spending her free time writing Oprah fan fiction.
Considering how long Gayle has been friends with Oprah, we totally believe her story, but are completely baffled as to why Wendy would write a fake letter.
Maybe this is all just one big understanding. Or maybe…Oprah is the liar!
What's going on here!? Quick! Someone run that letter for fingerprints! We want the truth! LOLz!
Do U think Wendy Williams would write a fake letter from Oprah?
