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 [click here if you missed that].
A day or so later Wendy read a letter to her audience that she said came from Oprah personally, denying the rumors.
Needless to say Wendy was very excited about her a letter from Oprah, but Gayle put Wendy on blast when she announced on her radio show that Oprah didn't write the letter and doesn't know anything about it...
The letter Wendy read went like this
“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!"
Gayle shot it all the way down telling her listening audience,
"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!'"
