In recent interviews Oprah Winfrey revealed that last fall she suffered signs of a nervous breakdown.

Last fall the media mogul was running her OWN television netowrk, magazine and starring in Lee Daniels’ film The Butler.

During an interview with Access Hollywood, Winfrey said, “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.'”

Winfrey said she “just couldn’t take any more stimulation.”
