Oprah Winfrey's real best friend says she's she's not ready for the show to end, and has told the popular talk show host so."I said to Oprah, 'I'm having a hard time. I'm not ready,'" Gayle King told the Associated Press. "But you know, I am ready for her. She makes the best decision for herself. I totally understand why she's doing it."

She says she can't imagine TV without 'Oprah,' which has run 25 seasons.

King currently hosts a daily two-hour show on Oprah Radio, which can be found on Sirius XM. She's also an editor-in-large for O magazine.

The upcoming OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network will likely have a role for King as well, though that hasn't been determined.
