(AllHipHop News) Oprah Winfrey has been the symbol for Black excellence in television since she made her first billion dollars and has not stopped since. However, ambition usually comes at a price and Oprah recently revealed to Access Hollywood that she nearly had a nervous breakdown last year.
According to Oprah, her brain was so overly stimulated that reading pages proved difficult:
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.
Last year, Oprah was filming for her recent role in The Butler, interviewing celebrities as well as attempting to run her television network OWN, which was struggling much of last year.
Times are better for Oprah as The Butler has grossed over $150 million and her OWN Network experienced their highest rated month this past August. Oprah recently partied at Jimmy Iovine's house this past Sunday (September 24th) with Kim Kardashinan, Kanye West, R. Kelly, P. Diddy and many others.
