Oprah Winfrey, one of the most successful entrepreneurs and celebrities of all time, has recently had a nasty fall on stage during a Weight Watchers event.

Mind you, Oprah is 66 years old. She sorta walked it off and acted like it wasn't a big deal, but it was soon evident that she was hurt worse than was first thought.

Jennifer Lopez came alongside her to support her after such a terrible fall on stage, and Oprah posted a clip of them both on Instagram afterward.

It Has Become A Meme, But It Is No Joke

Unsurprisingly, the internet has been in an uproar over this... in laughter. The timing of her fall couldn't have been worse.

Just when Oprah was talking about "balance" she fell down. She says it was due to her shoes, which she quickly took off after the incident.

I think most people don't realize how serious the injury was. I'm in my 20's, a sprained ankle or twisted knee can heal in a week's time, or sooner for me.

Oprah is not a spring chicken and shared that she was going to treat her leg after the event. So what was the damage?

Extent Of The Injury

Thankfully, Oprah didn't break anything and was able to move about after the fall. However, she also said she was in 'a lot of pain' which made many followers very concerned.

After looking into this further, I've been able to ascertain that she is resting and recovering. Though it is still unclear whether she will be able to walk around without support.

I'm hoping she didn't fracture something. Cat scans don't always work, especially for "micro-fractures" which are barely visible.

I had a "micro-fracture" after an accident, and my "quick recovery" lasted weeks. How long would that take for Oprah?

Oprah's Fans Post Support

Fans have been sending their support and best wishes over social media to Oprah.

Most have a jocular attitude about it (due to how many memes have come from the event) but there are those who take this a bit more seriously and show sincere concern for her.

Personally, I've always had a sense of humor about well-timed falls and memes, I'd be lying if there wasn't humor in something like this.

But I'm really glad I'm not the only one sending goodwill to Oprah and not making a joke out of this right now.

What To Expect From Oprah?

Assuming Oprah fully recovers and is able to resume her activities, we should see her host another cool interview with a guest-celebrity like Jennifer Lopez.

Other news just released detailing how every season of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' will be fully converted to a "podcast". Fans and followers were thrilled with the news!

A recent social media post by "Maya Angelou" shows her and Oprah in an interview together. Oprah said this was amazing for her since Maya has been her inspiration!
