Gayle King to Host CBS 'Early Show': Meet 4 Successful Black Women Who Once Worked for Oprah

After graduating from Columbia University in 2002, Helena Andrews scored a $5.15 per hour internship at Oprah’s O Magazine. She says she survived on Ramen noodles, free food in the break room and the kindness of strangers.

In 2005, Andrews earned a master’s degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. A former staff writer at Politico and New York Times Style Section contributor, Andrews now writes a popular weekly column called “Single-Minded” on being “free, single and disengaged” for The Root, a division of The Washington Post.

HarperCollins published her first book in June 2010, a memoir in essays titled Bitch is the New Black. “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes has optioned the book as a feature film for Fox Searchlight Pictures.
