Oprah Winfrey shows off her ‘new knees’ while hiking in Hawaii with Gayle King: ‘Another hike!’


Oprah Winfrey showed off her ‘new knees’ while on another hike with her longtime best friend, Gayle King, in Hawaii on Thursday afternoon. 

After having both knees replaced last year, the television personality, 68, was seen wearing a white t-shirt with thin black stripes and off-white sweatpants on her latest excursion. 

She accessorized her casual look with a wife-brimmed hat, oversized sunglasses and black fanny pack.

The Mississippi native was joined with King, 68, who wore a purple floral tank top and neon pink shorts, as they trekked through dirt on a scenic trail. 

They both used walking sticks to help themselves make it up the hill as they enjoyed some fresh air in the Aloha State. 

‘Hey everybody. On another hike today because it’s my new passion,’ Oprah said to the open the clip alongside King, who added that she has ‘new knees.’

Winfrey underwent two knee surgeries during the latter half of 2021. She then went through many difficult months of rehabilitation. 

‘So I’ve been hiking since literally March of this year,’ Oprah continued in the clip. ‘Now, for the first time ever, I moved to another island. I never go off island.’ 

She then revealed that she and Gayle had decided to go to Kauai to look for new hikes, and they encouraged others to come out to the gorgeous island as well.

They both agreed that the hike they’d chosen wasn’t too difficult though Gayle joked that she ‘certainly didn’t look’ like she was going on a relaxing stroll.   

Oprah talked about some of the movies which had been shot on the island including Jurassic Park before coming up with the phrase ‘State of Hawaii is the state of health.’

Gayle and Oprah have been hiking a ton over the last week or so, with Winfrey documenting a number of clips from their adventures earlier in the week. 

The pair even joined up with a group of friends for an end-of-year gratitude hike, as a way to bid farewell to 2022 and hello to the year ahead.

The television icon documented the 10-mile trek in a series of four videos posted on her Instagram page, which were full of fun and light moments where the two longtime friends joked with each other and their fellow hikers.

Off the top of the first video, Winfrey stood with the group, who were all decked out in their hiking gear, as they prepared to take on the hills and mountains with a spiritual mantra in mind.

‘So here’s the deal,’ The OWN founder began dressed in a pink sweatsuit and hat. ‘We’re doing an end-of-year hike. This isn’t just hiking up a mountain, this is a gratitude hike.

‘So, the whole intention of this hike is to show gratitude for the life you live, for the year you’ve had, for the blessings you’ve received, so it’s a gratitude and praise hike.’

‘I’ll be doing this in the name of Barbara Walters, who has been a great mentor and friend to me’ she added.

The group then all shared their ‘mantras’ for going up the hill, with Winfrey’s being, ‘In God I move and have my being.’

The third video was shot when the group made it to the top and celebrated with a bread and cheese picnic. 

While laying on the green lush grass, Winfrey and King showed off their incredible chemistry, which oftentimes includes lots of comedy and laughter.

‘This is confirmation: I love bread,’ Winfrey declared, while seemingly still catching her breath, as she opened up a white covering to reveal a gorgeous loaf of bread.

King then chimed in about how she was ‘poo-pooing bread but now it sounds like a good idea.’ 

In the caption, Winfrey offered a bit of words of wisdom: ‘As you walk into this new year, take this as a reminder to put one foot in front of the other. One foot in front of the other. One foot in front of the other. And whether you’re hiking an actual mountain or just tackling a problem, remember to look at how far you’ve come and not how far you have left to go. Happy 2023’

The fourth and final video showcased the group as they finished the Gratitude Hike.

The clip focused largely on King, who sounded winded in the final homestretch. And like many of the other moments, the two BFFs still found the time to joke about how they took longer than expected to do the trek.

‘How did @gayleking do during our 5-hour hike? (7 hours for Gayle, actually.) Here you go—she says her toes hurt today,’ the former host of The Oprah Winfrey Show shared in the caption of the last post.

The two ladies’ friendship dates back more than 46 years when they met in the early 20s while working at WJZ-TV in Baltimore in 1976 —Winfrey as a news anchor and King as a production assistant and writer, according to Yahoo.
