Gayle King

It certainly doesn't hurt to have friends in high places. That couldn't be more true in the case of Gayle King, the most famous BFF in modern history. Gayle and Oprah's friendship dates back to Oprah's days as a TV news anchor in Baltimore, where Gayle was also working before she moved on to a job as a newscaster in Hartford, Conn. When a couple of attempts at hosting TV shows didn't pan out, Gayle left broadcasting behind to become editor-at-large at O, The Oprah Magazine in 1999. She rekindled her relationship with TV by appearing as a special correspondent on several episodes of Oprah. In 2006, King moved on to yet another medium, landing her own talk show on XM Satellite Radio.
