Even with their friendship, King said that does not mean Winfrey wouldn't cancel King's new program if she decided it wasn't working.
"I'm not going to act like I have job security," King said. "If she doesn't think the show is working, I'm not sitting here saying, 'Oh my God, I will never get fired.' … I think the only person that can't get fired is Oprah."
Although she is grateful for the life she has been given, King said there's one thing that's missing from it at the moment -- a love interest. Although rumors had been circulating that she and Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, N.J., were romantically involved, King said they were just friends.
"I really do look forward to the day when I share my life with somebody again," she said. "I think everybody wants someone to share their life with. Do I have that special person? No. Do I think I will find it? Yeah, I do."
Nonetheless, King seemed focused on keeping an open mind about the future.
"I know for sure that nothing is guaranteed," she said. "Life always changes. I know for sure that I'm open to all possibilities always...let's just say my life is never boring."
