Oprah Winfrey Is Scared Of Balloons!

Think Oprah Winfrey is superhuman and fearless??! THINK AGAIN!

While balloons are a symbol of celebration, they're Oprah's worst nightmare.

The mega entrepreneur explained:

"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?' It reminds me of gunfire. [It] really freaks me out."

But being the bad ass she is, Oprah conquered her biggest fear!

And of course, used the opportunity to teach her fans a life lesson.

Oprah continued:

"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."

So true, Oprah! SO TRUE.

Obviously, there's a reason why she's one of the most powerful women in the world!

Nothing — not even balloons — can hold her back!

    Not a big fan of balloons myself, they are bad for the environment, and I do hate the noise when the regular ones pop, but being scared is a little extreme.
