Gayle admitted that she wasn't sure what happened during Oprah and Cindy's interview, but she insisted that "it's not Oprah's thing to humiliate or make anybody feel bad." Gayle continued, "I have to see it, but, as far as I know, everything is good between Oprah and Cindy."

Cindy appeared with her Elite Modeling Agency representative, John Casablancas, on an episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' in 1986.

Oprah was heard introducing the then-20-year-old actress, asking, "Did she always have this body? Stand up just a moment, now this is what I call a BODY."

Before complying, Cindy flashed a tense smile. She then stood up so that everyone in the studio and viewers at home could get a better view of her body.

Cindy reflected on the situation and said on 'The Super Models' that she felt like "chattel or a child, to be seen and not heard. Looking at it through modern eyes, Oprah would say, 'Stand up and show me your body. Show us why you're worthy of being here.'"

The mother of Kaia Gerber continued, "In the moment I didn't recognize it... Watching it back I was like, 'Oh my gosh, that was so not okay really.' Especially from Oprah!"
