“This is our Thanksgiving so we got to work the points however best we can,” she told fans on Instagram as she toured the lavish spread.

Not all of the turkeys were for the Own network creator and her guests, though they did plan on going through the majority of them.

Charlie Rose’s ‘CBS This Morning’ Co-Host Gayle King on Harassment Allegations: ‘You Still Have to Report the News’

Charlie Rose’s ‘CBS This Morning’ Co-Host Gayle King on Harassment Allegations: ‘You Still Have to Report the News’
When Gayle King booked her Tuesday night appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” weeks ago, the “CBS This Morning” co-host and O Magazine editor-at-large was prepared to chat about “Oprah’s Favorite Things,” best friend Oprah Winfrey’s annual super-luxe wish list. But, as King sagely noted during the episode, things change…and fast. Initially imagined as a fluffy, fun, holiday-ready segment, King instead was tasked with talking about the very recent firing of her former co-host Charlie Rose, who had been ousted from CBS for allegations of sexual harassment mere hours before King took the “Late Show” stage.

“I came this close to canceling,” King admitted when she first came out.

Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey's Fierce Bond: How Their 40-Year Friendship Has Outlasted Every Rumor, Spat and Scandal
As we continue to find out that certain people we once looked at with reverence (or at least without disgust) are not what they seemed, and that others we never thought much of are even worse, it's nice to have friends you can always count on, people you really know—people you can share your thought process with, before you've figured out what's right and what's wrong, when you need to face a million strangers and say the right thing. And this week especially, we're glad that Gayle King has Oprah Winfrey. While Oprah's no-last-name-needed status as a dominant force in entertainment and beyond is unparalleled, the very mention of her also has the power to...

Gayle King 'Still Reeling' From Charlie Rose Sexual Misconduct Allegations: 'He Doesn't Get a Pass'

Gayle King 'Still Reeling' From Charlie Rose Sexual Misconduct Allegations: 'He Doesn't Get a Pass'
At the top of CBS This Morning on Tuesday, Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell addressed the sexual misconduct allegations against Charlie Rose.

Rose co-anchored the morning show alongside King and O'Donnell for five years, but was suspended from the network on Monday after eight women came forward in an article published by alleging that the 75-year-old newsman sexually harassed and/or assaulted them when they were working on his PBS interview show, which has also been put on hold.

King admitted that she was "still trying to process" the news, calling the allegations against Rose "deeply disturbing, troubling and painful" to read.

"I really am still reeling. I got an hour and 42 minutes of sleep last night," she told viewers. "Oprah [Winfrey] called me and said, 'Are you Ok?' I am not Ok."

King noted that while she and her coworkers are "deeply affected" and "rocked" by the Post piece, she is supporting

Ava DuVernay Wants ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ to Be ‘a Lynn Shelton Movie, Just on a Larger Budget’
Ava DuVernay and Ryan Coogler first met as indie directors at Sundance in 2013, yet their conversation at Vulture Festival at the Hollywood Roosevelt November 19 wasn’t exactly a long-overdue reunion. “Yesterday you were in our suite, looking at fruit wraps?” DuVernay asked.

They are respectively editing “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Black Panther” on the Disney lot (“behind doors two steps away from each other,” according to DuVernay). The expected blockbusters — each budgeted in excess of $100 million — hit theaters three weeks apart in early 2018.

Trailer Watch: A Girl Becomes a Warrior to Save Her Dad in Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time”

A Wrinkle in Time

“You can’t keep using your father’s disappearance as an excuse to act out,” Meg (Storm Reid) is told at school in a new trailer for Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time.” Rather than sulking and waiting for a miracle, Meg decides it’s up to her to save her scientist dad (Chris Pine) and takes along her younger brother (Deric McCabe) and friend (Levi Miller). The trio defy rules about time and space, and travel through the galaxy and dimensions. It’s not long before their epic adventure takes them to a trio of supernatural-seeming women.

“We heard a cry out in the universe … we believe [your father is alive] and we’re here to help you find him,” Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey) informs the kids. He’s trapped by an evil energy. Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon) explains that they’re looking for warriors “who serve the
