Have there ever seen two better friends than Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King?

The pair have been at each other’s side since 1976, with Oprah describing her gal pal as, “the mother I never had, she is the sister everybody would want, she is the friend everybody deserves, I don’t know a better person.”


And luckily for us, the besties are pretty open — and hilarious! — about their friendship.

The television host and editor-at-large for O Magazine have a webseries together called The OG Chronicles, where they “respond to questions from readers, offer their time-tested advice and reveal fun tidbits about themselves in the process.”

On an episode about family drama and contravening “The Code,” the soul sisters got candid about what would happen if Gayle ever got with Oprah’s longtime partner, Stedman.

“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,” Oprah began. “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…”

“If you ever catch me and Stedman, you know, boinking around, fooling around, you catch us in bed. She [Oprah] shouldn’t even be mad at me, because she should say I’ve lost my mind,” Gayle piped up.

Her best friend agreed, saying: “Yeah. She goes, ‘Call someone. Put me in the jacket and have me carried off because you will know that I have lost my mind.’”

You gotta love them!
