Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King are the world’s most solid BFFs, but just in case King were to somehow wind up in the sack with Winfrey’s longtime beau Stedman Graham, the two actually cooked up a plan for how to handle it.
That nugget of knowledge comes courtesy of the duo’s YouTube advice show, “The OG Chronicles”, thanks to a question from a viewer who asked for some guidance after revealing she’d been secretly exchanging flirty texts with her sister’s ex-boyfriend.
The ensuing discussion led Winfrey to recall a conversation she and King had many years ago.
“This is interesting. Years ago, I think I’d been dating Stedman… I don’t know. I’ve been dating him since 1775. So we’ve been together a long time,” she explained.
“But early on in our relationship, I was doing these shows [like] ‘My sister slept with my sister’s husband’ or ‘My sister slept with my boyfriend,’ and all that. And Gayle said…”
“If you ever catch me and Stedman, you know, boinking around, fooling around, you catch us in bed,” King interjected. “[Oprah] shouldn’t even be mad at me because she should say I’ve lost my mind. Take me to the hospital. You shouldn’t even be upset.”
“[Gayle] goes, ‘Call someone. Put me in the jackets and have me carried off because you will know that I have lost my mind,” Winfrey continued, with King agreeing: “Lost my mind.”
Besides, King added, “You should be mad at him.”
