25 Years of Oprah and Gayle on The Oprah Show
Watch Stedman talk about Oprah and Gayle's friendship
"What's made their friendship so successful is they both love to talk," he says. "So they made a pretty good living out of talking, and they're interested in the same things. They basically are sisters." Stedman also says that Gayle is like family to him and Oprah, and he's glad Oprah has such a good friend.
"Someone was just asking me the other day, 'Do you and Stedman get along?' And I said, 'Very, very, very well,'" Gayle says. "I mean, there's really nobody like him."
