Gayle King to Matchmaker

Your Lawsuit Is BS!

Equals No Lawsuit

Gayle King wants the lawsuit filed against her by a prominent matchmaker thrown out of court -- and it's all because she says she never signed on the dotted line. 

As TMZ first reported, King was sued in September by Orly the Matchmaker ... who claimed Gayle promised to get her on "Oprah" in return for her matchmaking service. Orly claims she waived her $500,000 fee and Gayle went on several dates ... but never lived up to her Oprah promise.

According to docs filed in federal court in California this week, King says the entire lawsuit has no merit because California law states that oral contracts -- which is what Orly claims they had -- involving "dating services" are void and unenforceable.

A hearing on King's motion to dismiss is scheduled for January 9, 2012.

$500g fee... that cracks me up. I'd just hit the club and take my chances with NSA - No Strings Attatched.

Oprah's your best friend and you can't find a date!?! How pathetic is that!?! On the other hand, anyone who thinks they deserve $500,000. to find someone else a date deserves to get screwed out of the fee.

She can't find a date because she's a greedy mooch who's always looking to get something for free because she's Oprah's best friend.

STFU Gayle. You're only famous because you and Oprah are lovers.

So is the article saying that King made an ORAL agreement, but she is now saying since it was made in California she doesn't have to honor it?

If so, that means her word is useless, which means her life is useless. You have nothing but your honor.

If you wanna use a good match maker that wont screw you over and who will work to entertain you as well, all you have to do is go on freaking youtube!

Mike.. from guess what?

"The match making with Mike show!"

Works on agreed upon donations and also he does monologues that are hilarious. Just sub to his channel and when you need to find a job or a date his show will hook you up!

So in other words Ms. King did use her service, hooked up with the guys, and probably did make the promise to get her on Oprah's show. She just never signed! Sounds pretty shady to me. I think half a million is an outrageous fee but Ms. King should owe her something.

Gale already GOT Oprah. Why would she need a date, unless these two gals like threesomes?
