Oprah Winfrey may be a billionaire media mogul, but her best friend and television journalist, Gayle King, believes she could have been a successful therapist.

King spoke about how Winfrey supported her as she divorced her ex-husband William Bumpus during Tuesday’s episode of Brooke Shield’s podcast, Now What? With Brooke Shields.”

“She’s one of the best therapists of all time,” King said of her longtime friend. “If she had a second career, it would be — honest to God, she’s one of the best therapists of all time.”

King has spoken publicly about the time she caught Bumpus in bed with another woman in 1990. The couple divorced in 1993 and they share two children, Kirby Bumpus and William Bumpus Jr.

The CBS This Morning co-host told Shields that at first she only told Winfrey and her mother about her ex-husband’s infidelity.

“I knew I could trust them,” she said.

King recalled the night she caught Bumpus cheating during a 2016 Vanity Fair interview.

When asked if there was one person alive that she despises the most, the TV presenter mentioned the woman her husband was having an affair with.

“‘Scorn’ is a strong word,” she said. “I’m not a huge fan of the woman I caught naked with my ex-husband at 9:16pm on June 24, 1990 — but I don’t remember the details.”

In a 2010 interview with Barbara Walters, Winfrey described her close bond and friendship with King.

“She’s… the mother I never had. She’s … the sister that everyone would want,” she said. “She’s the friend everyone deserves. I don’t know a better person. I don’t know a better person.”
