Oprah Reveals She Almost Suffered A Nervous Breakdown

Oprah Winfrey has revealed a shocking confession. The woman who seemingly has it all revealed that maybe she took on a little more than she could chew last year and nearly suffered a nervous breakdown.

She said that her health scare came last year when she attempted to juggle two major projects – her new cable network and filming The Butler.

“It was just sort of speeding and a kind of numbness and going from one thing to the next thing to the next thing,” Winfrey told Access Hollywood, via ABC News. “I thought … if I don’t calm down I’m going be in serious trouble.’ I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain.”

She said that her “a-ha” moment came when she was interviewing that Kony 2012 director Jason Russell – who suffered a very public meltdown of his own – and that’s when she realized she was experiencing many of the same symptoms as he was describing.
