Gayle King is being sued by a famous matchmaker who claims she hooked the OWN host up with a bunch of "attractive, fit, and wealthy men," but Gayle reneged on her promise to put her on "Oprah."

Orly Hadida, aka Orly the Matchmaker, claims she made a deal with Gayle 2 years ago to provide her with matchmaking services.  According to the lawsuit, Orly waived her $500,000 fee, and in return Gayle promised to get Orly a guest spot on "Oprah."

Orly alleges she spent hundreds of hours hooking Gayle up with five men.  Orly claims Gayle went on several dates with more than one of the men. 

According to the lawsuit, back in May Orly panicked, realizing Oprah's show was coming to a quick end.  So she says she sent Gayle an e-mail, saying since she clearly wasn't going to appear on Oprah she wanted to get paid.

Gayle's rep had no comment.
