CBS News anchor Gayle King has opened up once again about the backlash she faced over her controversial interview with former WBNA star, Lisa Leslie regarding the late Kobe Bryant.

King headed to her bestie, Oprah Winfrey's 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Tour, to speak about the incident and the lessons that she learned.

"I have moved on. Is there a scab? Yeah. But I have moved on," King said, according to PEOPLE.

"I put on my game face and my big girl pants because I never lost sight of who I was, what I believe I am, and my intention. I've never lost sight of that. But it certainly was a learning curve, and it was very painful," King continued.

The journalist caught some heat after she pressed Leslie to speak about the 2003 rape allegations against Bryant less than a fortnight after he, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash.
