Oprah is probably helping her heart by keeping down all the stress. Gayle talked to Ellen and spilled the tea. Check out the interview and what Vanity Fair says about it.
As Jane the Virgin has reminded us, if you ever want a favor from Oprah Winfrey,you have to ask her best friend, Gayle King. It turns out that if you also want to know any possibly incriminating secrets about Winfrey, King is the one who will crack. During her interview on The Ellen Show earlier this week, King shared with Ellen DeGeneres that while she has never smoked “a marijuana cigarette,” the Almighty Oprah, indeed, has.
“Oprah has also smoked a little marijuana, too. I don’t mind saying that,” she said. “I’m not telling tales out of school.” But she didn’t want to go further: “I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate her . . . It’s not something that happens on a regular—I’m going to change the subject.”
The fact that King just shared this information isn’t exactly scandalous; marijuana is legal in California, where Winfrey lives. Actually, it kind of makes a whole lot of sense. If you were Oprah Winfrey, and you lived in a home where you were surrounded by what Vogue once described as “stacks of gardening books and voluminous green wicker sofas and chairs,” you too might take a hit or two before climbing into your custom-made bathtub for an evening, pre-bed soak.
