Nothing like a cozy little camping trip to get rumors of romance flying again!
Oprah Winfrey and best friend Gayle King, long the subject of speculation that they might be a couple, saw the humor in their situation on a recent camping trip, even joking about their sleeping arrangements in footage broadcast Wednesday on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
As the friends prepared to spend the night in a small pop-up camper, Winfrey, 56, said: “Gayle, want to go in first?” To which King, 55, replied with a smile: “Why don’t you just add to that lesbian rumor?”
