Gayle King made a statement about Michael Richards‘ use of the “n” word over the weekend. She said, “You know, I have to say, in the privacy of my own home, with my closest friends, who shall remain nameless, you know, we have – we have used that [word] when we’re talking about other people. So I go back and forth between a term of endearment, sometimes, the way it’s used, and just a very hateful, bad thing.”
Everyone including myself knew she was talking about Oprah. I mean, what other friends does she have? She swears on her copy of “The Color Purple” that she wasn’t talking about Oprah. Sure…
Gayle said, “I was not talking about Oprah, Stedman [Graham] or Maya [Angelou]. Maya will ask people to leave her home if they use that word. People act like I have no other friends than Oprah . . . I am starting to rethink [the use of the N-word]. I no longer think that [its use] is a good thing . . . Oprah’s whole thing is [that] words have power, and I am mortified that this would be out there with her name attached to it when it’s not true.”
Gayle, honebear…Oprah is your only friend. She pays extra to keep it that way. Oprah probably got to her and threatened to expose her wig-wearing ass if she doesn’t take it back! The power of the O!
