Gayle King Defends Oprah After Cindy Crawford Calls Her Out: ‘I’m Surprised & A Little Disappointed’

Gayle King admitted she hadn't seen Cindy Crawford's 'Super Models' docuseries but stressed it's not 'Oprah's thing to humiliate' anyone.
“I haven’t seen it, and I want to see it, but I’m surprised and a little disappointed,” Gayle, 68, told ET at the Albie Awards on September 28.
“Because I know Cindy’s been on her show many, many, many times and it has always been a pleasant experience, [so] I would hate to think that something that happened years ago [could have bothered her].”
“It’s not Oprah’s thing to humiliate or make anybody feel badly,” Gayle stressed.
She added, “I have to see it, but, as far as I know, everything is good between Oprah and Cindy.”
“This is what I call a body,” Oprah said to Cindy on her show. After Cindy took a seat, the supermodel took a moment to deny the rumors that she weighed only 100 pounds.
“I was like the chattel or a child. Like, be seen and not heard,” Cindy said.
“When you look at it through today’s eyes when Oprah’s like, ‘Stand up and show me your body. Like, show us why you’re worthy of being here.’”
Cindy continued, “In the moment, I didn’t recognize it. Only when I look back at it and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. That was so not okay, really.’ Especially from Oprah.” Oprah has yet to address Cindy’s claims about what happened on her talk show.
Gayle stunned in a colorful striped dress. Cindy also attended with husband Rande Gerber and looked fabulous in a pink lace gown.
