The mishap occurred as Winfrey was talking while on stage at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
With this tour, the talk show host has spoken on the ups and downs of her wellness journey while helping others on theirs. Along the way, she has welcomed celebrities such as Julianne Hough and Dwayne Johnson, speaking on their own experiences.

A fan told Hollywood Life, “Oprah was walking around on the stage and talking, giving words of wisdom to the crowd.”
“All of a sudden, she stumbled back, teetered on her heels and then fell right on to the ground, on her butt,” the fan spoke on witnessing the incident.

The TV icon later revealed the amount of pain she was truly in by sharing an Instagram video of her interacting with her special guest Jennifer Lopez backstage at the tour stop.
In the post, Winfrey wrote, “Thank you to the astoundingly age-defiant Jennifer Lopez who came to the show in this yellow stunner and gave new meaning to the word 50.”
She went on to reference the now-infamous fall on stage.
The talk show host continued, “LA: You were lit! In spite of my fall (which now becomes a meme), you brought me UP with your energy. Now I’m headed home to ice my knee and ankle.”
Winfrey was able to find some hilarity in her pain.
Fans of the entertainment mogul were quick to post supportive comments on her Instagram.
One fan wrote, “Glad you’re not seriously injured and hopefully you won’t be too sore tomorrow.”
“Use a little Liniment oil too!” another fan posted. “You’ll be fine.”
Others tried to lift her spirits by mentioning other infamous tumbles from the likes of Lopez and Beyonce.
“Me: It’s okay Beyoncé fell on stage too. You: Oh if BEYONCÉ fell THEN it’s okay,” another fan commented on the post.
Oprah’s longtime partner Stedman Graham lent his support by immediately rushing onto the stage to help her after the mishap.
At the time, he was in the VIP section along with her best friend CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King and Meghan Markle‘s mother Doria Ragland before spinning to her aid. Luckily by the time he arrived, she was already back on her feet and continued on with the show.
For the remainder of the chat, she walked on stage without any kind of footwear.
Over the course of her tour, Oprah has had a slew of celebrities take part in the casual chatty atmosphere.
Over the past month, special guests have included Lady Gaga. The Oscar and Grammy winner chatted with the talk show queen about how she and co-star Bradley Cooper “fooled everybody” about their possible romance going on while filming A Star is Born.
The next stop of Winfrey’s tour will be on March 7 in Denver, CO at the Pepsi Center.
