Oprah Kingpin Was Mental Over Dental

TV titan Roger King's wife, Raemali, is suing his former dentist for faulty bridgework -- by the way, King is also dead.

So why, you ask, would the widow of the King World empire (yes, as in "Oprah") sue a tooth jockey? According to the lawsuit, Raemali King claims Dr. Deborah Davis held a drill to Roger's head and it was all about money. According to the Palm Beach Post, Raemali claims Dr. Deb wouldn't complete Rog's bridgework unless he forked over extra cash.

Raemali says Roger suffered "physical and emotional injuries" that deprived her of his "support and services." So let's get this straight ... the guy who put "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy" on the map wouldn't pay his dentist bill. Holy molar!

We talked to Dr. Davis' office, and they weren't aware of any lawsuit.
