Oprah & Gayle Heat Things Up

9/11/2006 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey nearly fainted from the Mississippi heat on a visit to her hometown last week.

With temperatures hovering near 90 degrees with 80 percent humidity, Oprah had to sit down and apply a cold compress to keep from passing out.

Oprah and her best gal pal, Gayle King, were in the talk show Queen's birthplace of Kosciusko to dedicate a state-of-art Boys & Girls Club, which Winfrey funded.

This is the most heated we've seen Ms. Oprah since the whole James Frey debacle back in January.

Ok. Being from MS, first off, you do NOT wear long sleeves in August in Mississippi. You will roast and die. 2nd off, you should not wear black pants as that attracts the heat. Come on Oprah... get with the program. 90 something degrees here is cool. We were having a cool front.....

Re: Oprah and her friend, my gosh dont you all have better things to write than nasty things, I applaud Ohrah for her success, and she has good Friends. They stand by her, support her,even through all the nasty things that are said about them. Lets look at more important things in this world like the war, poverty, sexual abuse of children and stop speculating on sexual preferences of media stars, newscasters etc.

STOP PICKING ON OPRAH! I wouldn't have known what to wear in that MS God awful heat either. Nor would I want to have been there! I guess you don't remember all the wonderful wishes Oprah has made come true and her fight against child molesters! You're just jealous Rednecks and should be ashamed of yourself. Now slink back to your trailer park and watch something you MIGHT understand! Ashley McKimmy

She's from there and doesn't know how hot it gets?! She's (allegedly) an intelligent women (even if she isn't from there) she should understand the type of weather there that time of year.
How sad, how pathetic...can't even pump gas...and she thinks she has the pulse of the people, america, women etc.....Oprah, I understand why you never pump gas...YOU ARE ALREADY FULL OF IT !!

It's amazing how American's can turn on you at the drop of a hat. Personally, I don't think Oprah is gay, but who cares. This is the same woman that has helped so many people, black, white, gays, etc. The same woman that you can't get in to her show without a waiting list and lets not mention her "favorite things show." Finally, the same woman that every writer would love to have their book endorsed by Oprah.

Personally, I think she is a Saint in many ways, all the power and money she's out there helping people around the world.

The bottom line is, this society is all about color and that she isa Black woman.

Oprah, keep on keeping on and if you and Gayle are the best of friends, God Bless.

I do not think that Oprah is gay, Stedman, yes. All I know is that if the only thing people should worry about is if Oprah is gay or not, something is seriously wrong in this country. Think about impeaching Bush, he's the big worry.
