    Gayle King Overshares About Oprah Winfrey’s Hospitalization: “Stuff Was Coming Out of Both Ends”

    Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey made headlines at the 66th GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles, but not for the reasons you might expect. While Oprah was unable to attend the event due to a bout of stomach flu that landed her in the hospital for dehydration, her best friend Gayle King took it upon herself to share the details with the world.

    During a segment on “CBS Mornings,” King revealed that Winfrey was dealing with a serious stomach flu that had her “coming out of both ends.” Despite the graphic nature of the explanation, King assured viewers that Oprah was on the road to recovery and would be okay.

    In a follow-up statement from Oprah’s spokesperson, it was confirmed that she was indeed recovering and feeling better every day. In a video call posted on King’s Instagram, Winfrey herself confirmed that she was on the mend and not upset by King’s oversharing.

    While the incident may have been a bit TMI for some, it only served to highlight the close bond between King and Winfrey. As Winfrey put it, King was simply trying to explain her absence in a definitive way.

    In the end, all’s well that ends well, and Winfrey is on her way to feeling 100% again. But perhaps next time, King will think twice before sharing such intimate details with the public.
