Gayle King was on the Harry Show today, where she shared with the host a dating nightmare. Oprah’s bestie revealed to Harry Connick Jr. that she was out on a dinner date with a man, whom she found out during dinner was married, and immediately asked for the check.
Gayle explained she was recently out on a date and found herself in that very situation:
‘So I’m out to dinner and he’s talking and then he said something about my wife and I said, ‘Wait, wait, wait, your wife? You have a wife?’ He goes, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Does she know you’re here?’ He said, ‘But, we’re separated.’
‘I said, ‘Oh, you’re getting a divorce.’ He said, ‘No, we’re separated, we live in the same house, it hasn’t been good for a really long time.’ And I was like, ‘Check please, I know that story.’
Gayle knows the infidelity story too well, she opened up about her own experience in 2006 on her XM satellite radio show.
‘I was married to a cheater . . . 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,’ she explained.
