Who would’ve thought one of media maverick Oprah Winfrey’s biggest fears would be...balloons? In the October edition of O Magazine, Winfrey discusses facing your fears and she reveals what causes her to shake in her Manolos. Winfrey stated:
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?'
