Oprah is speaking up about mental health again in a new Apple TV+ series she has created along with Prince Harry. The programme entitled The Me You Can’t See sees the pair open up about their own experiences and features other celebrities doing the same, including Lady Gaga and Glenn Close. Oprah has previously spoken about how her CBS colleague and best friend Gayle King has been a rock for her over the years.

The US TV legend said on the Drew Barrymore Show earlier this month: “What I realised is that Gayle was my regulation. “It makes me want to cry now thinking about it. “Every night after the show I would come home and I would have these sessions with Gayle where we talked about what happened on the show, what didn’t happen on the show and that was the way that I regulated myself. “So I would talk to Gayle before bed and then I would be calmer.”

The two TV stars have been best friends for decades and this was not the first time Oprah has spoken about how much Gayle means to her.

The two have even worked together for TV shows, including a huge road trip back in 2006, which they filmed for the Oprah Winfrey Show.

The expedition was an 11-day 3,600-mile journey from Santa Barbara to New York dubbed ‘See the USA in a Chevrolet’.

On the second night, the pair slept in a rather unusual motel called the ‘Wigwam hotel’ where the rooms were shaped like teepees.

The woman at reception, who explained her father had built those rooms himself 55 years ago, asked the two travelling women whether they would like two rooms or one.

While Oprah suggested they shared a bedroom, Gayle insisted she wanted her “own teepee”.

The woman then asked whether they wanted to register together or separately.

Gayle quipped: “We’ll fill it out separately. We’re not a couple, despite what you’ve heard!”

Both women burst out laughing at the joke.

Gayle continued: “I know it looks a little suspicious right now, America.”

Oprah held her stomach as she laughed, before adding: “I know it looks a little suspicious, however…

“Listen, I want my wigwam on the other end of the village.”

The woman joked back: “That can be arranged.”

Gayle and Oprah were in a very giggly mood, having driven for 11 hours that day.

Gayle said later that it was “crack out loud hilarious funny to us” simply because they were so tired from the day’s driving.

Oprah and Gayle explained to the woman at reception that they had been driving for a long time and that they did not mean to be rude.

They then realised the women did not know who they were and Gayle asked whether her friend “looked like Oprah”.

When they revealed it was really Oprah Winfrey, the woman could not believe it and asked whether she was on Candid Camera.

The Me You Can’t See is available on Apple TV+ now.
