Oprah Winfrey Is Afraid Of Balloons

Talk show titan Oprah Winfrey is afraid of balloons! Who knew?!?

For the October issue of her magazine, O, she revealed her fear. She said, “I don’t like balloons, and for my 40th birthday my entire staff decided to surprise me. I come downstairs and the entire audience is filled with balloons. Literally, I’m stepping over balloons, having to walk through balloons and I’m so, like, ‘Oh! When is one going to pop?'”

She went on to reveal why she has this particular fear. She said, “It reminds me of gunfire. It really freaks me out. No way around it – just had to walk through them.”

She added, “There are a few things that in life, if you allow them to, can really keep you from moving forward. You have to really walk through it.”

Sage words from a wise woman indeed! We could definitely say that her statement applies to a variety of situations, wouldn’t you agree?
