Oprah’s BFF Gayle King sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to promote a slew of shit like hosting six hours of royal wedding coverage this weekend, but somehow she managed to drop in there that Mama O likes that good kush. Snitches get stitches, Gayle!
The Cut says Gayle brought up Ellen’s 60th birthday party and how Amy Schumer was there trying to get her to toke up. Gayle admits to being a square but is also willing to try it. But she somehow slipped in a detail about her BFF has lit up before:
“I said I’ve never smoked a marijuana cigarette. I never have. Maybe that’s part of the problem — [I call it a] cigarette…Oprah has also smoked a little marijuana, too, I don’t mind saying. I’m not telling tales out of school.”
Oprah did admit to Letterman once that she knew her way around a joint or two.
Well that explains why Oprah always had an ethereal look during even the episodes where she had to interview skinheads, racists, and all other fungi of life. Ellen wanted to know if Oprah liked it, but Gayle, likely remembering her allowance and invitations to Chez Winfrey were about to get whacked in half, jokingly replied:
“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 whole thing starts at around the 3:40 mark in the clip below:
Someone who was a tad surprised by this was Martha Stewart. TMZ caught up with her leaving ABC studios in NYC, and one of the paps yelled at her wondering if she had heard about Oprah blazing up. If there’s one thing that lady moguls like to have, it’s leverage on Oprah, so Martha do-si-doed over to autograph shit for a fan and get the tea on Oprah. She joked, “The end of Oprah,” and the photographer wondered what Martha bakes when she is with her friend Snoop. Martha responded in such a mom way by saying, “I do the baking, and he does the smoking.”
Someone really should have all three of them over for a ganja party because Beyoncé could be put to shame with new lyrics along the lines of, “I take your billion dollars on an elevator, and raise you half a trillion dollars on ‘dis couch gettin’ fuuuuuuuuucked on nature’s finest!”
