Birthday girl: Gayle King gets a cake from BFF Oprah and films a Taylor Swift music video with her family as she turns 63 in style during Hawaiian vacation
It has been a difficult few weeks for Gayle King in the wake of Charlie Rose’s ousting from CBS This Morning, but on Thursday it was time to celebrate.
The popular morning show host left all her troubles behind – 4900 miles behind to be exact – as she enjoyed a birthday bash for the ages in Maui.

This included a massive feast of dover sole meuniere, braised short ribs, cauliflower au gratin, buttered carrots, skillet potatoes and a butter lettuce salad.
And to top it all off was a special cake in her favorite color from her favorite person, with Oprah Winfrey singing ‘Happy Birthday’ while presenting King with a yellow-frosted confection.
