NEW YORK, Sept 30, (Agencies): Gayle King has weighed in on the recent controversial comments made by Cindy Crawford regarding an early interview with Oprah Winfrey. In the inaugural episode of the new AppleTV+ docuseries titled “The Super Models,” Crawford took a trip down memory lane, reflecting on her very first appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1986, when she was just 20 years old. During this segment, she criticized Winfrey for making her feel like a “chattel,” akin to a piece of property.

King, a close friend of Winfrey’s, discussed the matter with Rachel Smith at the Clooney Foundation for Justice’s 2023 Albie Awards in New York City. She admitted that she had “heard about it” but had not yet seen the clip of the interview or the new show.

“I haven’t seen it, and I want to see it, but I’m surprised and a little disappointed,” shared King. “Because I know Cindy’s been on her show many, many, many times, and it has always been a pleasant experience, so I would hate to think that something that happened years ago could have bothered her.”

Although King reiterated that she was unclear about the specifics of the interview, she emphasized that it was not Oprah’s style to humiliate or make anyone feel uncomfortable.

“I have to see it, but, as far as I know, everything is good between Oprah and Cindy,” King added.

In the controversial clip, initially removed from YouTube but later reposted, a young Crawford, at 20 years old, was joined by John Casablancas, her representative from Elite Modeling Agency. Winfrey, after introducing Crawford from DeKalb, Illinois, asked Casablancas, “Did she always have this body?” She then requested Crawford to “stand up just a moment.”

Winfrey exclaimed, “Now this is what I call a body,” with an emphasis on the word “body.”

Reflecting on the moment in “The Super Models,” Crawford expressed her feelings about the interview: “I was like chattel or a child, to be seen and not heard. When you look at it through today’s eyes, Oprah’s like, ‘Stand up and show me your body. Show us why you’re worthy of being here.’ In the moment, I didn’t recognize it, and watching it back, I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. That was so not OK, really.’ Especially from Oprah.”

It is worth noting that Crawford went on to make 10 more appearances on “Oprah” following her 1986 debut. She also appeared as a featured guest on “Oprah’s Master Class,” which aired on OWN in 2013.

As of now, Winfrey has not publicly responded to Crawford’s commentary from the episode.
