Oprah took a tumble while in LA during her speaking tour. The 66 year-old media mogul was right in the middle of explaining what her meaning of wellness is.
“So here’s my definition of what wellness means to me. This is my definition, not yours. It’s just an idea because you’re going to be defining it for yourselves.
‘Wellness to me means all things in balance, and balance doesn’t mean all things are equal or at peace at all times.’ said Winfrey
By the time the final hiss of the letter “s” left her lips Winfrey was laying in a face full of stage. The irony is uncanny and hilarious.
I know this should not be funny. I am concerned for her well being. But, part of me wonders if this is some karmic nudge telling Oprah to back up off us brothers.
Oprah and her best friend Gayle King have been accused of targeting successful Black men while they are alive and in their death.
Most recently Gayle King received death threats for her line of questioning in an interview with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie. In the wake of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna’s death in a helicopter accident, King found it appropriate to ask Leslie about Bryant’s sexual assault case. Leslie maintained her composure and stated that she did not know Kobe to be the type of man who would assault women.
The internet, specifically Snoop Dogg was not so forgiving. Snoop addressed King’s questions and called her a profanity laced name. Snoop has since apologized.
Russell Simmons, Bill Cosby, R Kelly and Micheal Jackson (who is dead) have all come under the scrutiny of Winfrey and King. While Charlie Rose and Harvey Weinstein, white men, accused or have been convicted of similar crimes, who are close friends of King and Winfrey do not experience the same type of scrutiny.
It is because of this that I can’t help but think that the ghost Michael Jackson moonwalked across the stage and caused Oprah to fall while whispering “Just leave me alone” in her ear, or maybe not.
What do you think? Did Mike do it? Share in the comments.
