Oprah My God! Gayle Takes Manhattan

Let the Oprah sightings begin! Gayle King, who is Oprah's best friend but not her lesbian lover, has purchased an apartment at Place 57 on East 57th Street, according to the Post. The three-bedroom, $7.4 million penthouse features a 768-square-foot wraparound terrace, Viking appliances, two fireplaces in front of which Oprah and Gayle will not snuggle, and three marble bathtubs in which they will not take long luxurious bubble baths together. Could Gayle, who has until now lived in Connecticut, be moving to the big city in order to run Oprah's new network, OWN? WWD thinks maybe, since Gayle has a background in TV and grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, where Discovery Communications, which has a 50 percent stake in OWN, is headquartered. Also, Oprah likes giving Gayle, who is currently the editor-at-large of Oprah's O magazine, jobs. But not because they are lesbians.
