Gayle King Accused of Being Cheap


Oprah Winfrey's bff accused of being an extreme cheapskate by prospective make-up artists...

From Naughty Gossip
“Gayle has a fancy apartment where the elevator opens right up into her home. She has pictures of Oprah everywhere and the place is beautiful. I did a makeup test on Gayle’s face, which was harder than you might think because her phone constantly distracted her. Finally, I finished and she liked my work. But the problem was she was only offering $500 a week. And you have to be at her apartment before 5am each day,” a source tells Straight Shuter. “It was fun meeting her and she was super nice but ultimately I passed on the job.”

Hopefully this person tried to negotiate travel expenses..if car service is included for pick up& drop off nothing wrong with a fixed monthly income of $2k. Plus the perks of meeting more clientele.....This make up artist needs an agent

I'm with you @9:32, cause I must be missing something. I mean how long does it take to do her makeup and then go about your business?

$24k isn't bad for a pt gig.

Exactly! I probably takes all of an hour at the most 90 minutes to do her makeup. Hell I would do that at 5am and be ready to hit my full time job by 7:30. These young people think they should become millionaires because they do a rich person’s makeup thanks to YouTube and other social media platforms. Smh. Gotta put in work. This person passed on an opportunity to network with some heavy hitters. Hope they enjoy their PT gig at American Apparel.

This woman is hideous, so I imagine just making her look halfway normal is probably a task in itself. As far as being cheap, well she's been rocking that same tired beaver on her head since 2004 so, yes she has to be cheap.

Waking up at 3 am or 4 am to do someone's makeup for $71 a day isn't my my cup of tea.

@12:25 i feel you.

i find it hard to believe that she knows Oprah and is so well connected at CBS (or wherever studio...) that she pays for her make-up artist out of her own pocket. They probably give Gayle a make up budget and she's prolly spending it. But yeah, I would need alot more that $71 to throw make up on that grill everyday.

500 a week? chile please these youtube MUA gurus make that per video and they do multiple videos a week. they would laugh at those peanuts. People up top talkin all that "She should take it" mess ain't got no skills so they'll take any damn dollar somebody waves at them. #KnowYourWorth

People can be so mean and vicious. Isn’t having a hideous personality worse than wearing a beaver wig? Ya’ll act like she slaughtered 12 million Jews or something all because she doesn’t like like a pencil faced shaped broad who has been instafiltered to death with ashy lipstick and bone straight hair. This world is going to hell.

That's probably why her wigs look the way they do. U get what U pay for.

Nope. Gayle is pocketing that budget that CBS gives her for hair and makeup. She needs some who will do both that hair is tired.

12:25 thank you, exactly. Please understand MAC and other makeup counters charge you $50 a face. And they don't have to sign a nondisclosure, or wake up at 3 a.m. in the motha f*cking morning drive to yo crib aka travel, set up all their products then pack up, to beat your face. come on.

Additionally in home service is an added risk, especially in the entertainment industry. Did "Gayle" speak up or out regarding Matt Lauer? Then she wouldn't speak out if in house staff was taped by one of them freaky Hollywood motherf*ckers.

I see what y’all are saying, but plenty of record executives and media personalities had to sweep floors, get coffee, etc for pennies just to get their foot in the door. Hell plenty of these make up artists do reality star’s makeup for free and a shout out on Instagram. It takes one bomb ass beating of Gayle’s face and someone could be put on to be a resident makeup artist and command big dollars. It’s about long term vision, not short term again. If I had the chance to work with Gayle and make an impression, I’d sure take it.

But again, ain’t no one trying to put work in ... just get rich overnight. 🤦🏽‍♀️

*short term gain

If someone paid me for a couple of minutes work I wouldn't complain. Who ever this person is they aren't thinking long-term big time. Word of mouth is what spread more business around.

What fool would miss the opportunity to comb Oprah's wifes weave. Two weeks of that convince her to get a makeover and you get a car!!!

We all known Gayle is cheap as shit. Look at that old ratty wig she wears on top of her head. I don't blame that make-up artist. You have to let people know that they can not treat you any kind of way. Good for her.
