The media mogul told a room full of thousands last month about her breast cancer scare, which was shocking news to everyone in the room. That included Oprah’s longtime friend King, who was visibly upset despite the fact that Oprah’s scare was a false alarm.
The revelation came last month at a public appearance, as Oprah attempted to deflect criticism of her OWN network, which has endured low ratings since launching in 2011. That’s when Oprah admitted to a breast cancer scare the previous week, and the crowd reaction was that of shock. Thankfully, the scare turned out negative.
