Oprah

Buys Gayle

a Maxi Pad?

3/27/2008 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gayle King really could be movin' on up to the east side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky ... and it just might be courtesy of gal pal Oprah Winfrey. We just got -- pardon us -- the skinny.



TMZ has done some diggin' and found Oprah's LLC -- called Sophie's Penthouse -- purchased the $7.1 million phat Manhattan penthouse two weeks ago. BTW, Sophie was the name of Oprah's dog, which just died. And Sofia was her character in "The Color Purple." Good detective work, we think.

Floor planThere are reports Gayle is moving in. A well-placed source connected to the property tells us it's "uncertain" at this time if Gayle will live large in O's pad. Gayle has said she wants to spend more time in NYC to work with O's magazine and her XM radio show.

O had no comment. Gayle's peeps tell TMZ they don't comment on her private life. They leave that to us!

What does Gayle actually do for Oprah that she deserves this special treatment? Oh wait, don't answer that question. I don't want to burn my retinas with those images in my head.

Maxi-Pad. HarHarHarHar. *snicker snicker" (slapping knee)!

Seriously, what's the average age of TMZ? Most people get over thinking women's hygeine products are a hilarious punch line after about the age of 17.

How much detective work did it take to find that out? Perezhilton.com reported it YESTERDAY....wow...you guys are REALLY on top of things.
Not to mention was the Jefferson's theme song because she is black? That is fairly racist....do you assume that people who are black shouldn't be livin' in such high faluttin' places? Should those coloured folk be back in the slums eatin' they fried chicken and waddy-melon pickin' they cotton where they belong?
Racist jerks!!!

Gayle King wouldn't even have a life, but for Oprah. She is the biggest no talent around. Oprah's generosity knows no bounds. Gayle King's a taker, a grabber, a user.

No reason to hate Gayle King for having a good friend like Oprah.

I met Gayle King when I lived in CT and she was anchoring the news on WFSB. She has always been sooo nice and very sincere. She's a very funny lady. Once again...people passing judgement based on what the media tells them.

If anyone of us had the amount of money that Oprah has we would do the same for our BF. She has done so much good for the world she is allowed to do what ever she wants with her money.
