“So if you had any doubt about whether Gayle King is a lesbian scratch that, because Gayle is being sued by a famous matchmaker who claims she hooked Gayle up with a bunch of “attractive, fit, and wealthy men,” but Gayle reneged on her promise to put her on “Oprah.”

Orly Hadida — aka Orly the Matchmaker — claims 2 years ago she made a deal with Gayle to provide her with matchmaking services. According to the lawsuit, Orly waived her $500,000 fee, and in return Gayle promised to get Orly a guest spot on “Oprah.”

Orly alleges she spent hundreds of hours hooking Gayle up with 5 men — all fabulous. Orly claims Gayle went on several dates with more than one of the men. . .” –TMZ has the full story.
