Oprah Winfrey Throws Best Friend Gayle King an Epic Birthday Dinner


Oprah Winfrey knows how to throw a birthday dinner!

The media mogul threw a lavish get-together to celebrate Gayle King's 63rd birthday on Thursday. Winfrey took to Instagram to share a video of herself with her best friend, showing off the dinner menu, which included glazed carrots, braised short ribs, skillet potatoes, butter lettuce salad with pears and more delicious selections pre-chosen by the CBS This Morning host.

"It's almost Weight Watchers-approved," Winfrey says in the clip as King, in a stunning yellow dress, follows along.

After the feast, King was treated to a gorgeous cake.

"Yellow cake with yellow frosting for Gayle who loves YELLOW! #happybirthdaygayle," Winfrey wrote alongside a video of everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to King.

King also shared some snapshots from her special day on her Instagram account on Friday.

"Birthday DAY! Swipe left how it started-b’day menu (i picked) b’day song led by @Oprah & “modeling” in Maui. 63 ROCKS! Yep this happened yesterday," she captioned the slideshow.

King ended the night with her daughter, Kirby, and son, William, watching movies and dancing along to Taylor Swift.

"B-day nite ends w/fav daughter @kirbybump we wore matching camo outfits but don’t tell & truffle popcorn! swipe left for movie-it involves a lady and a bird," King wrote.

"And finally! A BRIEF music video w/fav daughter @kirbybump & fav son ..background @taylorswift LOVE her! swipe left BUT better video @jznotthatjayz Instagram story who showcases warts & all of my life," she shared in another post.
