Oprah Ditches Her Troublesome Shoes And Resumes Her Motivational Speech Barefoot After Taking A Scary Tumble In A Room Full Of People At The Forum In Los Angeles.
Oprah Winfrey took a tumble on stage during her motivational tour stop at The Forum in Los Angeles. Ironically, the former daytime talk show host was talking about balance before she suddenly tripped and came crashing down in front of her audience.
“Wellness to me means all things in balance. And balance doesn’t mean all things are equal or at peace at all times,” the 66-year-old who donned a white pantsuit said before losing her footing and falling on the ground. “Wrong shoes!” she quipped.
A stage assistant rushed to the stage to assist her before she stood up and decided to just ditch her shoes. “It’s nice to be talking about balance and fall,” she took a jab at her own misstep before resuming her speech barefoot, earning a supportive applause from the crowd.
Among the audience were allegedly Oprah’s best friend Gayle King and Meghan Markle’s mother Doria Ragland. Her longtime partner Stedman Graham reportedly attended the Saturday, February 29 motivational speech as well.
Oprah’s special guest at the event was Jennifer Lopez joining past guests like Lady GaGa, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Michelle Obama. Oprah is scheduled to conclude her “2020 Vision: Your Life on Focus Tour” on March 7 in Denver, Colorado, with her friend Gayle as a guest.
Her sit-down with Lady GaGa in January was an emotional one as the singer opened up on suffering the trauma from sexual assault. “I was raped repeatedly when I was 19 years old, and I also developed PTSD as a result of being raped and also not processing that trauma,” Gaga said.
“I did not have anyone help me. I did not have a therapist, I did not have a psychiatrist, I did not have a doctor help me through it – I just all of a sudden became a star and was traveling the world going from hotel room to garage to limo to stage, and I never dealt with it. And then all of a sudden I started to experience this incredible intense pain throughout my entire body that mimicked the illness that I felt after I was raped.”
