Gayle King: Oprah (still) smokes weed


(Around 13:40 in the video.)

Oprah has confessed to smoking the Devil's lettuce in the past, though she said in a 2015 interview that she hadn't blazed in "30 years, really." In her last interview on the now-defunct Late Show with David Letterman, she and Letterman compared go-to stoner snacks; while he liked ice cream (two pints at a time), she satiated the munchies with a sleeve of Oreos.

Letterman says he quit toking because "it makes you feel dumb," but Oprah didn't seem to buy that.

If longtime friend Gayle King is to be believed, Oprah is still in touch with Mary Jane. On her first visit to The Ellen Show, she accidentally tattled on her famous friend.

GAYLE: I’ve never smoked a marijuana cigarette. I never have. Maybe that’s part of the problem — I call it a cigarette. [...] Oprah has also smoked a little marijuana, too, I don’t mind saying. I’m not telling tales out of school.

ELLEN: Does she like it?

GAYLE: I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate her. It’s not something that happens on a regular — I’m going to change the subject.



Maybe things have changed since Oprah's 2015 interview or maybe she was fibbing about sucking 9s. 👌🏾 Either way, it's hardly the "end of Oprah" like celebrity tax evader and Snoop Dog smoke buddy Martha Stewart seems to think.
