Gayle King doesn't dance around sensitive issues as editor at large of O magazine, and she's not about to dance around on national TV, either.
King recently revealed to Us Weekly that she turned down three separate offers to appear on ABC's hit reality competition "Dancing With the Stars."
"I think it's good to keep my public humiliation to a minimum," 55-year-old King explained of why she said no-can-do to doing the can-can. "I would never want to embarrass my children ever...or myself! I can't dance."
Oprah Winfrey's BFF prefers to watch the show instead, and counts Disney Channel star Kyle Massey among her favorites.
"I didn't know him," she tells Us. "but he has personality and moves."
