Fans pray for Oprah Winfrey, 70, after she is hospitalized


Oprah Winfrey recently faced a health scare that kept her from appearing on CBS Mornings to announce her latest book club pick. Over the weekend, Oprah fell ill with a stomach virus, leaving fans concerned about her absence.

Oprah’s close friend, Gayle King, stepped in to explain the situation. “Ms. Winfrey is recovering following a stomach virus and received an IV due to dehydration at the recommendation of her doctor,” a representative shared with CNN. “She is resting and feeling better every day.”

In a touching video call posted on Gayle King’s Instagram, Oprah shared her struggle. She told Gayle that she “couldn’t keep enough water down to keep her hydrated,” which led to her needing hospital treatment. Gayle reassured everyone that Oprah will be okay, adding with a smile, “[I hope] she’s not mad at me for sharing that detail.”

The bond between Oprah and Gayle is a heartwarming example of true friendship. In a recent interview with the New York Times, they praised each other. “She is a blunt truth-teller. Even if you don’t want to hear it,” Gayle said of Oprah. “[We] enjoy each other very, very much.”
