Oprah Winfrey bestie Gayle King wants to be up-to-date on the latest slang. On the latest edition of OG Chronicles for Oprah magazine, Oprah and Gayle try to guess the meaning of today's slang words. "Are we still saying 'turnt'? Are we done with that?" says Gayle, 64.

The ladies define slang words such as "lit", "snack", "shade", and "thicc" ("we're both thicc)."

While Gayle makes it her business to stay current with the latest urban trends, Oprah isn't pressed to learn the language of the streets.

"You can't slang-shame me," says Oprah, 65, after saying she doesn't care if she's up-to-date on the latest slang or not.

Caution: If you're at work, make sure you close your office door. This video is hilarious!

    They, along with the majority of urban people, need to look up FAT in the dictionary cause what's being called "thick/thicc" now, is definitely overweight and sometimes obese....but their stomachs are flat, so I guess fat everywhere else doesn't count. TF

  • Seldomseen

    I want Gayle to get another wig!

    Now she wants to be urban and can translate urban slang but was offended when referred to as "Auntie". Bye, Oprah.

    An older relative told me they dont like people calling them auntie, mama, and all that when you're no relation or close because white folks used to call black people aunt so and so, mamie, etc just a few years ago. They should respect her and not call her that.

    I can understand and respect that. However, generally speaking blacks treat elders with a familial type of respect. Just as an elder would refer to a 50 year old woman as "chile" or "child". I just have a problem with her using a white platform to publicly admonish people that were attempting to respectfully endear themselves to her. Intraracially we know it's not being said in a disrespectful manner...that's my point.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I was so tickled when Earthquake put an announcement on his social media for the holidays saying he would pay for all the layaways left at Toys R Us. It took a while for people to catch on.

  • Chicagowise

    When I was a teenager, there was an older man (late 40s) that used to hang out with me and my teenage friends. We called him "grandma." I don't think he liked it.

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Chicagowise

    You want her wig to be snatched? ?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Ok,that makes sense

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'd say Gayle is thicc. Oprah is a little bit beyond thicc right now.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    They forgot to add that they were both sell outs..

  • Coy little wink

  • Coffee1st

    Wow. Just went straight there, huh?

  • dontgetblocked

    That was cute. I'm like Gayle. I need to know the slang. I still don't understand periodt yet.

  • dontgetblocked

    She wears a lot of weaves and wigs. Plus your hair gets thinner as you age. She probably doesn't feel like dyeing it and getting it done all the time.

  • dontgetblocked

    They wear super spanx.

  • Meagan Good’s Eyebrows

    Fuggin love Gayle “God we sound old, I don’t like this game” ???

  • Miss Thang

    She has thick long hair but she has been doing a lot of protective styling lately with half wigs and weaves.

  • Logan Roberts

    I don't know how Capricorn Gayle does it, I don't like/get along with Aquarius women. They are too weird, sensitive & do too much for my taste. But then again Oprah is wealthy ?

    You have to look at the entire birth cart Gemini and Capricorn are just a persons Sun sign which reveals our personality. If Gayle has a Gemini moon or a Gemini rising that creates a Bond. Oprah though a Gemini Sun sign may have Capricorn energy strongly aspected in her charts her Venus could be in Capricorn both scenerios would help the other understand each other.

  • Seldomseen

    Why was a man that age hanging out with kids.

  • Greatgrape37

    Oprah is an Aquarius

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Thanks ??

  • Kimocha

    I am a Gemini and have always been quiet and shy... So it's not ALL Gemini women.

  • Chicagowise

    Back in the day, it was common for young gays and older gays to hang out. Sometimes, they formed surrogate families.

  • Seldomseen
