Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King have reunited to celebrate the holidays together.
The best friends were pictured sitting around the table wearing matching onesies on Thursday night, with Gayle, 61, posting a photo on Instagram and saying that Oprah had bought them for the group.
They were joined by Oprah’s longtime partner Stedman Graham and Gayle’s son William and daughter Kerby for their holiday getaway.
The two women had plenty of reason to celebrate as well, with Gayle signing a $16.5million contract to stay on at CBS This Morning earlier in the month and Oprah, 62, pocketing $10million on Thursday alone thanks to her stake in Weight Watchers after revealing she had lost 40lbs. on the program.
Gayle wrote on her Instagram photo of the group Thursday: ‘Dinner!@oprah surprised us w/@burtsbeesbaby onesie no size big enuf for @officialstedman-I think he was bummed (smile) it was most popular on @oprahmagazine favorite things list.’
She also posted a photo earlier in the day of Oprah sitting in her onesie by the fire with Stedman, writing: ‘Stars they are just like us! @oprah & @officialstedman relaxing by the fire -beverage of choice hot apple cider …’
Gayle and her two children had spent the day skiing during the getaway while Oprah and Stedman appear to have chosen to stay back at the house and relax.
‘First skiing lesson in THIRTY years today -praying to Jesus it goes ok. That’s a big a** mountain back there ….’ wrote Gayle on Wednesday soon after arriving at their destination this week.
She later updated fans on her progress Thursday, writing the she had been skiing with the youngsters in the bunny slop, saying it was ‘great for ego to watch 5 year olds whizzing by.’
Gayle spoke about how much she admired Oprah in an interview with Vanity Fair earlier this year when asked to name the person she most admires.
She responded by saying: ‘Oprah Winfrey. She always does the right thing – even when no one is looking.’
The friendship between the pair has long lead to rumors of a relationship between the two but King has shot those down time and time again, saying in a 2011 interview with TV Guide: ‘In the beginning, it used to bother me. Like, “Oh, my God, I don’t want people to think I’m gay – I’m trying to get a date!”
‘But now I don’t care. I’ve given up trying to figure that out. At this stage, if you still think that, it’s on you.’
Oprah meanwhile continues to give Gayle her honest opinion at all turns, most recently telling her how little she cared for a necklace she was wearing on her CBS show.
Gayle posted a photo of her look on Instagram and wrote: ‘Note @oprah sent to my asst this am “plz tell Gayle I’m on treadmill & it’s hard to focus w/the circus around your neck” I think she’s WRONG thoughts?’
She also wore a statement necklace a few days later for a meeting with Oprah in hopes of changing her mind on the oversized accessory, but it did not appear to work.
