Monica Gayle Husband Cheating
Gayle King recalls catching her husband in bed with a naked woman and slams his mistress saying she is ‘not a huge fan’
Gayle King is known to many as the cheerful host of CBS This Morning and loyal best friend of Oprah Winfrey, but she recently revealed that there is one person she does not like.
In the August issue of Vanity, Fair King answered the Proust Questionnaire, and was asked: ‘Which living person do you most despise?’
King responded to the question by saying: ‘” Despise” is a strong word. I’m not a huge fan of the woman I caught naked with my now ex-husband on June 24, 1990, at 9:16 pm – but I don’t remember the details.’
King, 61, was married to a lawyer and former assistant attorney general for Connecticut William Bumpus from 1982 to 1993 and has spoken about their split in past interviews.
Back in 2006, she addressed his infidelities on her XM Satellite Radio show, according to CBS News, saying: ‘I was married to a cheater.’
She went on to say: ‘I went to marital counseling. I have been divorced since 1993, so I’m all healed and everything. I have worked it out. I’m not bitter. I’m OK. I’m really OK.’
The couple has two adult children, son William Jr., and daughter Kirby.
King spoke about her kids as well on her radio show, saying: ‘It’s so important for people who have children together to get along. Regardless of how you feel about the other as a spouse, you still have these children to raise together.’
The Vanity Fair interview also gave King a chance to talk about her best friend when asked: ‘Which living person do you most admire?’
She responded by saying: ‘Oprah Winfrey. She always does the right thing – even when no one is looking.’
The friendship between the pair has long lead to rumors of a relationship between the two but King has shot that downtime and time again, saying in a 2011 interview with TV Guide: ‘In the beginning, it used to bother me. Like, “Oh, my God, I don’t want people to think I’m gay – I’m trying to get a date!”
‘But now I don’t care. I’ve given up trying to figure that out. At this stage, if you still think that, it’s on you.’
The two ladies will likely be heading to Sun Valley, Idaho on Wednesday where Oprah Winfrey has been invited to attend the annual Allen and Co. conference.
Also attending this year’s event will be King’s This Morning colleague Charlie Rose, who she has become close with ever since they began working together on the CBS show four years ago.
