In the middle of today's show, Gayle has to slip away for a very important meeting in Hearst Tower, home of O, The Oprah Magazine and Esquire magazine. Gayle says Esquire asked her to be one of 10 women they needed to dance with George Clooney. "We get to dance with George for two to three minutes," Gayle says. After going back and forth between Oprah and George, Gayle said, "Bye-bye, Oprah!"
When she returns, everyone wants to know how her date went. Gayle says after eating three Altoids to make sure her breath was completely fresh, she was ready for the big dance. "George was delightful," she says. "He said, 'Tell Oprah hello.'"
