Premiere Of The Weinstein Company's "Lee Daniels' The Butler"

Say it ain’t so!

In a recent interview with Access Hollywood when discussing reports that she endured signs of a nervous breakdown Oprah admitted “That is true.”

According, the emotional epiphany came to her last fall, while  she was interviewing Kony 2012 director Jason Russell, whose own running-naked-in-the-streets-of-San-Diego meltdown went viral earlier that year.

The mogul says as she was interviewing Jason and he described the symptoms of his breakdown, she had a revelation.

“In the beginning, it was just sort of speeding and a kind of numbness and going from one thing to the next thing to the next thing. I will tell you when I realized that I thought, ‘All right, if I don’t calm down I’m gonna be in serious trouble.’ I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain.”

So does this mean O was also running around nude?!  She says:

“I mean, I wasn’t ready to go run naked in the streets. Let’s make that very clear. But I had reached a point where I just couldn’t take in any more stimulation. OK? That’s what I meant by that.”

But the network owner says she soon recovered.

USA Today reports:

 A couple of weeks later, while interviewing Fergie, Oprah realized she was ready to regain control of her life.

Thank the heavens.
