Oprah Winfrey took 5,000 audience members, including her best friend Gayle King, for a wild ride recently when she announced she suffered a breast cancer scare, reports The New York Times.
The queen of media took to the stage of O magazine’s annual conference to discuss a number of business-related topics but revealed the shocking health news without warning.
Winfrey, 58, calmed fears when she said it was ultimately a false alarm. King reportedly became visibly upset by the announcement. A woman in the audience “chided” Winfrey and demanded she apologize to King and the audience for the unnerving moment. Winfrey reportedly withheld the information from King until she got confirmation from her doctors.
