Oprah Winfrey took it all back to where it all began as she posed for her first Oprah magazine cover with her best friend, Gayle King.
The billionaire media mogul said the reason her 40 years friendship with Gayle King has lasted without arguments or fallouts is because they’ve always been happy with their lives. According to Oprah, a true friend can’t be jealous of you or want to take advantage of you in any way.
She wrote as they covered Oprah Magazine September’s friendship issue;
I can’t tell you how many times people have introduced me to their best friends as, “She’s my Gayle.” The reason our friendship has worked for over 40 years, without arguments or fallouts, is that we’ve always been happy with our own lives. A true friend can’t be jealous of you, or want to take advantage of you in any way. Ever since we met in 1976, we’ve been doing the same thing. Listening. Talking. Laughing (a lot). Building dreams. Cheering. Being a shoulder to cry on. Speaking the truth. Being the truth. And now? Posing for our FIRST @oprahmagazine cover for September’s friendship issue.
