Oprah Reveals Hidden Breast Cancer Scare

Posted Monday November 26, 2012 11:04 PM GMT

Though talk show legend Oprah Winfrey has always been open about her own struggles with her audience, a recent health scare was hid from everyone, even long-time bestie Gayle King.

Back in October, Oprah told an O Magazine conference audience that she had a breast cancer scare the week before. Though it turned out to be a false alarm, Monday's New York Times reported that the revelation made Gayle "visibly upset."

According to the paper, one crowd member scolded the 58-year-old mogul for not telling her friend sooner and suggested she apologize.

Also during the conference, Oprah addressed declining sale of her magazine, even leaving open the possibility of switching to a digital format. She explained, "I don't care what the form is. I care about what the message is."
