Oprah Hosts an ‘Almost’ Healthy Birthday Dinner for Gayle King

Oprah and Gayle King.

To celebrate best friend Gayle King’s 63rd birthday on Thursday, queen of the seas Oprah Winfrey hosted a lovely birthday dinner — that was almost healthy.

“Hi, everybody, it’s Gayle’s birthday so we’re having a birthday dinner,” Oprah said in an Instagram video. “It’s almost Weight Watchers–approved.” She then showed off a buffet of glazed carrots, Dover sole meunière, braised short ribs, scalloped potatoes, butter lettuce salad with pears and truffle au gratin cauliflower. (“Because cauliflower is having a moment,” Gayle explained in the video.)

Then, to top it all off, Oprah presented Gayle with a “yellow cake with yellow frosting” because, if you didn’t know, “Gayle … loves YELLOW!” Oprah wrote.

So nice of Oprah to do this for Gayle … but rude of her not to invite us.
