Oprah's best friend Gayle King talks about the time she caught her ex-husband naked in bed with another woman

Speaking with the August edition of Vanity Fair, 61-year-old Gayle King, the host of CBS This Morning and loyal best friend of Oprah Winfrey, opened up on catching her husband pants down with another woman.
King was asked: 'Which living person do you most despise?'
King responded to the question by saying: '"Despise" is a strong word. I'm not a huge fan of the woman I caught naked with my now ex-husband on June 24, 1990, at 9:16pm - but I don't remember the details.'
It's not the first time she has spoken of the incident which occurred during her marriage to lawyer and former assistant attorney general for Connecticut William Bumpus from 1982 to 1993.

Back in 2006, she addressed his infidelities on her XM Satellite Radio show saying: 'I was married to a cheater.'

She went on to say: '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.'

The couple have two adult children, son William Jr. and daughter Kirby. King spoke about her kids as well on her radio show, saying: 'It's so important for people who have children together to get along. Regardless of how you feel about the other as a spouse, you still have these children to raise together.'

The Vanity Fair interview also gave King a chance to talk about her best friend when asked: 'Which living person do you most admire?' She responded by saying:
'Oprah Winfrey. She always does the right thing - even when no one is looking.' Their very close friendship has led to speculations about their sexuality but King has shot those down time and time again, saying in a 2011 interview: 'In the beginning, it used to bother me. Like, "Oh, my God, I don't want people to think I'm gay - I'm trying to get a date!" 'But now I don't care. I've given up trying to figure that out. At this stage, if you still think that, it's on you.'
