Gayle King

Sued By Matchmaker

For Not Delivering "Oprah"

So if you had any doubt about whether Gayle King is a lesbian scratch that, because Gayle is being sued by a famous matchmaker who claims she hooked Gayle up with a bunch of "attractive, fit, and wealthy men," but Gayle reneged on her promise to put her on "Oprah."

Orly Hadida -- aka Orly the Matchmaker -- claims 2 years ago she made a deal with Gayle to provide her with matchmaking services.  According to the lawsuit, Orly waived her $500,000 fee, and in return Gayle promised to get Orly a guest spot on "Oprah."

Orly alleges she spent hundreds of hours hooking Gayle up with 5 men -- all fabulous.  Orly claims Gayle went on several dates with more than one of the men. 

According to the lawsuit, back in May Orly panicked, realizing Oprah's show was coming to a quick end.  So she says she sent Gayle an email, saying since she clearly wasn't going to appear on Oprah she wanted to get paid.

Gayle's rep had no comment.

Geez, I can't imagine how big a loser you have to be to have tons of money and still have to get a matchmaker. Money can get you anything these days. She must suck ass!

Do people really pay 500k for a hookup? I'm sure Gayle is exposed to many super wealthy men. Why would she need a match maker?

$500,000 fee. How desperate can you get. And all she has to show for it is some underwear stains.

File that lawsuit, I am Lindsay Lohan!    

"Orly alleges she spent hundreds of hours hooking Gayle up with 5 men" all those hours and only came up with 5 men? Maybe Gayle should be suing her instead!

It's very difficult for successful people to find a suitable mate.. don't you watch Millionaire Matchmaker?

I find it hard to believe that her fee is that high. If it is, she's a fool for not getting their agreement in writing, with a stipulation of remuneration if the Oprah deal falls through.

500k for a matchmaker, seriously? Craigslist is free. Use the 500k to buy yourself a sugarbaby. In this economy you'll have them lined up around the block.

www.newcarcolection.com . Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

The reason the fee is so high is Gayle thinks she deserves a wealthy man, one who won't use her for her money. I believe it did take the matchmaker hundreds of hours to find any man who would go out with Gayle's fugly ass, esp. a wealthy one. BUT-

The matchmaker should have known the last season was all about Oprah and the last thing they would do is have a matchmaker on who could spill the beans on Gayle. Please! Gayle's a skinflint, just like the big O.

Possible the dates sucked so she didn't want to feature the agency? Not that she doesn't suck too...

Fixing Gayle up with a bunch of men doesn't prove she isn't a lesbian. Did she marry any of them? Is there any proof she had sex with any of them?

And who cares if Gayle and Oprah are lesbians? They probably are, but who cares??

A woman like Gayle can't find her own dates? Who would believe this baloney?
