Oprah Winfrey is the ultimate best friend as she is coming to ease the tension from the backlash her bestie Gayle King endured over the interview she did with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie and asked her about the sexual assault charge back in 2003.

According to E News!, Oprah stopped by Today to give an update on how Gayle is doing after receiving backlash from everybody including Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and even Bill Cosby.

She is not doing well. She is not doing well because she now has death threats and has to now travel with security. She is feeling very much attacked. Bill Cosby is ...tweeting from jail.  She's not doing well and feels that she was put in a really terrible position because that interview had already ran.

King went on Instagram account attempting to plead her case saying her conversation was taken out of context.

In other Kobe news it was announced a memorial for him, and his daughter Gianna will be held on February 24th at the Staples Center.

Do you think it time to cut Gayle some slack?
