Did Gayle King Just Come Out?

Oprah Winfrey has taken her share of heat about whether she might possibly be in the closet over the years. Some have speculated that she might have a secret relationship with close friend, co-anchor at CBS This Morning and editor of O, the Oprah Magazine, Gayle King.

In what might be a surprising turn of events, Gayle King may have made an attempt to come out about her sexuality earlier on CBS This Morning. The clip can be seen here.

You can observe in the clip that Gayle makes a joke about her and Charlie Rose being a couple, but she quickly backs out of it, murmuring, “I’m–I’m gay.”

What no one knows is why Gayle would make such a statement in this manner. Was it a nervous admission? Was it a secret that simply couldn’t be kept any longer? Or was it at an attempt at a joke, an acknowledgement of everyone’s perception of her sexuality?

Either way, the statement was bizarre, and you get the sense that King is very lucky for co-anchor Norah O’Donnell not to have heard and to have begun speaking practically before the word “gay” came to surface.

That’s how it appeared if you watch the video. though CBS claims that Gayle says that was not what she said. Instead Gayle claims that she was stuttering after saying that she was kidding.
