Gayle King had some breaking news brought to her for once — she got told that a bear was roaming around outside of Oprah‘s house … and no, she couldn’t sneak a peek.
The CBS News anchor is quarantining at O’s pad in Santa Barbara, and as such … she documented the message delivered to her by mogul’s own guards who are standing watch at the crib. Long story short … there was a black bear outside, and they wanted her to stay put.
You gotta watch how Gayle receives the word though — it’s pretty freakin’ hilarious. While she seems shocked at hearing there’s a fully-grown bear out there, she also sounds equally intrigued.
Unfortunately, the security personnel stands firm … telling her she really shouldn’t venture out to get a look. And, don’t worry, Oprah herself was notified as well — doesn’t appear she was home for the bear scare … a phenomenon we’ve been seeing a lot more of lately.
Maybe the fact people are cooped up indoors is reason enough for these fuzzy creatures to be a little bit bolder these days. That, or maybe they just got a whiff of some leftover grub.
That usually brings ’em out … even to the homes of the rich and famous, apparently.
