I can’t tell you how many times people have introduced me to their best friends as, “She’s my Gayle.” The reason our friendship has worked for over 40 years, without arguments or fallouts, is that we’ve always been happy with our own lives. A true friend can’t be jealous of you, or want to take advantage of you in any way. Ever since we met in 1976, we’ve been doing the same thing. Listening. Talking. Laughing (a lot). Building dreams. Cheering. Being a shoulder to cry on. Speaking the truth. Being the truth. And now? Posing for our FIRST @oprahmagazine cover for September’s friendship issue. Link in bio for more. 📸: @ruvenafanador
Some people need proof. Others become it. Team China, and Nations more, will compete to turn their dreams into proof on the global stage-the 2019 FIBA World Cup. #betheproof #fibawc #justdoit
In the beginning was the Word. Toni Morrison took the word and turned it into a Song…of Solomon, of Sula, Beloved, Mercy, Paradise Love, and more. She was our conscience. Our seer. Our truth-teller. She was a magician with language, who understood the Power of words. She used them to roil us, to wake us, to educate us and help us grapple with our deepest wounds and try to comprehend them. It is exhilarating and life-enhancing every time I read and share her work. This pic was her first appearance on the Oprah Show. She was Empress-Supreme among writers. Long may her WORDS reign!

Most comfortable show I’ve done EVER! IN SNEAKERS 👟👟 Almost burned last night’s heels but instead I gave them to an audience member in tonight’s show.

It doesn’t matter what you play. Nobody wins alone. ⠀ Whether it’s our team, our community, or anyone else who recognizes our victories as their own — progress only comes if we get there as one. ⠀ Inspired by decades of dedication from LGBTQIA+ athletes, and all who work to make sport a more inclusive space, we’re proud to be on this journey together. ⠀ #BeTrue #UntilWeAllWin
And what about this scene? @niecynash1 you killed it with @msisisking. Still haunted by @whentheyseeus. If you haven’t seen yet...please do. And for everyone who says it’s “hard to watch,” think about the people who still find it “hard to live.” All those families impacted! So proud of my sister friend @ava!

Maya would have been 91 today! This is my favorite picture of us. Even in death I feel the “unbroken continuity” of her mother-sister-friendship referenced in the Henry Scott Holland canon 🙏🏽❤️ Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away to the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, That, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect. Without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was. There is absolute unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you. For an interval. Somewhere. Very near. Just around the corner. All is well.

Can’t stop thinking about this movie. #Capernaum Saw it 3 days ago. Didn’t know when I watched it that the cast members were real people. Including these 2 phenomenal kids. Story of a young boy who sues his parents to stop having children they can’t afford. It’s about that and so much more. Surviving the daily traumas of being poor,proving your existence matters with no “papers.” Was nominated for Golden Globes. Hope the same happens for Oscars so more people can see it. Really worthy of your time. #Capernaum means chaos.
I couldn’t think of a better way to show how powerful and intense this season of @iyanlavanzant is going to be, besides showing you this. Iyanla stirring that tea cup gives me chills ☕️Everybody, breathe. The new season of #FixMyLife starts Tonight, 9p|8c.
