Gayle King may be one of TV's friendliest personalities, but she knows how to throw shade when the time is right.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the 61-year-old was asked to name a living person who "you most despise."
"'Despise is a strong word," she replied, before finally admitting, "I'm not a huge fan of the woman I caught naked with my now ex-husband on June 24, 1990, at 9:16 P.M. But I don't remember the details ."
King was officially divorced from husband, Connecticut Assistant Attorney General William Bumpus, in 1993.
In 2006, the CBS co-anchor told radio guest star Will Smith that time healed all when it came to her ex's infidelity.
"I was married to a cheater . . . I went to marital counseling," she said. "I have been divorced since 1993, so I'm all healed and everything. I have worked it out. I'm not bitter. I'm OK. I'm really OK."
King chose not to identify the "other woman" during her interview, and ex Bumpus did not reply when reached for comment.
As for who King most admires, the famed journalist named close friend Oprah Winfrey, saying, "She always does the right thing — even when no one is looking."
