Did we just hear what we think we heard?!
Oprah's bestie Gayle King might've just come out as gay on her show CBS This Morning! (Key phrase being might've)

Then, Gayle jokes that she and Charlie would be an ideal match — but immediately backtracks, saying what sounds a lot like she's saying, "I'm just kidding. I'm, I'm gay."
Sources from CBS have told TMZ that's not what she said, but we're on the fence.
We know Miz King has joked and shot down the coupling rumors with Oprah before, but her statement sounds like the Freudian slips to end all Freudian slips!
So now we ask U…
Did Gayle King say "I'm Gay" or "I'm…mmkay"???
- "I'm…mmkay" (34%)
- I'm Gay! (66%)
