Gayle King Watches Old Footage Of 'I'll Be Black' News Gaffe On 'Watch What Happens: Live' (VIDEO)

Gayle King got a blast from the past during her visit to the clubhouse on "Watch What Happens: Live." Of course, Andy Cohen and his team would pull out one of the most embarrassing moments from early in her career as a news broadcaster.

The moment came when she was a news anchor in Hartford, Connecticut. It was King doing a simple sign off, but one messed-up word changed the meaning of everything.

"Thank you for joining us. We’ll all be black next ... we’ll all be back next week, and I’ll be black. We’ll all be back," she said in the video.

"That was mortifying at the time, though, because you’re thinking, I am black," King said. "I just said I’m black on TV with white people sitting here."

While it may have been mortifying at the time, King can look back on it now and laugh. And it certainly didn't hold her back, as she's currently co-anchoring "CBS This Morning." Catch "Watch What Happens: Live" on Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
