Gayle King has gushed about her BFF Oprah Winfrey saying being the media titan’s wife would not be hard.
The This Morning anchor proclaimed that if Oprah was a man she would definitely tie the knot with her and she claims that marriage to her pal would be the easiest thing.
“She has all the qualities you would want in a spouse,” she told the New York Times.
“Somebody who is successful, who cheers you on, understands you, cares about you, supports you, who’s honest with you. There’s nothing difficult about her. Nothing.”
Gayle also addressed Oprah’s insistence that she knew her 1982 wedding to ex-husband Bill Bumpus would be a failure.
“That was a surprise to me,” the mother-of-two said. “It’s only because Oprah knows every single detail about my marriage that I wasn’t offended. And if she would’ve told me at the time, I wouldn’t have believed it. I was in love with somebody and thought that was it.”
Gayle has been at CBS since January but there hasn’t been a huge improvement in ratings.
“Are the numbers where we want them to be? Certainly not,” Gayle admitted. “But I’m encouraged by the reaction I’m getting from people.”
“It took Good Morning America more than 10 years to really get in the game. I think CBS will give us a good two years and if by then there’s no change, you have to think, ‘Well, should we try something else?’”
