Oprah Breast Cancer Scare

Well, whaddya know? Oprah is a mere mortal after all.

The Queen of Talk is spilling the beans (okay, a few beans) on her recent breast cancer scare.

During her annual O magazine conference in New York on Monday, Oprah announced to best galpal Gayle King and an audience of 5,000 fans that she had a breast cancer scare just last week. Luckily for O, it was a false alarm.

Oprah revealed very few details surrounding the incident, but the mere thought of the words “Winfrey” and “cancer” in the same breath was enough to leave Gayle visibly shaken, according to reports.

The New York Times wrote of the event:

“When [Oprah’s friend] Ms King grew visibly upset, one woman chided Ms Winfrey for not telling her friend ahead of time and ordered her to apologize to Ms King — all before an audience.”
