Oprah has left her mother upset after commenting that her best friend, Gayle King is “the mother I never had” during an interview with Barbara Walters. Oprah’s mother is said to be devastated about the comment. A source close to Oprah’s mother Vernita has said about the remark:

“Vernita is devastated, it was the final straw after years of insults and betrayals. She just doesn’t understand why Oprah still has to be so cruel to her.”

Oprah’s mother was reportedly watching the interview, filled with pride for her daughter, when she heard the hurtful comment:

“But her joy turned to tears and embarrassment as Oprah described her friendship with Gayle, Vernita knows she wasn’t the perfect mother, but she loves Oprah, and she is hurt by the way her daughter put her down in public.”

The friend also says that Oprah’s mother just wants to get on with her famous daughter:

“Vernita says Oprah keeps bringing up the fact that she was the result of a one-night stand, that Vernita didn’t protect Oprah from abuse or help her when she was raped when she was 9 years old. She wishes Oprah would forgive her after all these years.”
