A week ago during Wendy Williams’ Hot Topics segment, Wendy talked about the rumor circulating that Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King’s friendship was on the rocks because Gayle was leaving Oprah’s OWN Network for CBS and hanging out with Rapper 50 Cent who supposedly said some nice so nice things about Oprah.
A day or so later Wendy read a letter to her audience that she said came from Oprah personally. The letter supposedly denied there was any truth to the rumors.
“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!”
Wendy was amped about her a letter from Oprah insinuating that it meant Oprah actually watched her show.. But Gayle was none to tickled by the incident. She announced on her radio show that Oprah didn’t write the letter and doesn’t know anything about it…
Gayle notified her audience that Wendy’s letter was a fraud:
“The letter that I heard Wendy read – I didn’t see it – I know Oprah never wrote a letter to Wendy. I said [to Oprah] ‘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,’ … [Oprah] said, ‘Are you kidding? This is so what you do, the news is what you love … you would be crazy to pass it up!’”
So we just make up news now??? I may as well just write a letter to myself from Diddy..
I guess Wendy thought since Oprah was off of the air it would slide by… To her defense though, who would believe that Oprah of all people told someone to stay black..
