It is stated that one evening in Baltimore there was a really severe snowstorm. It was Winfrey’s recommendation that Gayle stay the night at her residence in the neighborhood rather than risk the hazardous drive back home. According to what Gayle has been quoted as saying, at first she was hesitant to participate because she didn’t have any other clothes with her to change into.

Oprah also mentioned that she did not borrow any of her clothing from anyone. They spent the evening getting to know each other better by chatting, joking, and exchanging rumors while also laying the groundwork for their friendship. Gayle remarked that all of them shared similar perspectives on life and even had similar preferences for the coworkers they liked and disliked.
