Oprah Falls On Stage While Discussing Importance of Balance

Talk about being upstaged.

Oprah Winfrey took a nasty fall during a speaking engagement—where she was ironically talking about “balance.”

It’s not clear what caused Oprah to lose her footing while addressing a audience in attendance for her wellness tour.

Oprah Winfrey’s wellness tour in Los Angeles got off to a shaky start.

The media mogul, 66, took a nasty tumble at the Forum arena Saturday during her “Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus” while ironically talking about “balance.”

“Here’s my definition of what wellness means to me… Wellness to me means all things in balance. And balance doesn’t mean all things are equal or at peace at all times,” Winfrey said before losing her footing and tripping on her shoe onstage.

Social media footage from attendees showed Winfrey went down hard, landing on her hands as the crowd gasped. A stage assistant rushed to help up the talk show host as the shock among the audience turned into a supportive applause.

“Wrong shoes!” Winfrey quipped.  [USA Today]
