Oprah Winfrey Hospitalized for Severe Stomach Flu, Says Gayle King


Reporter Gayle King, a longtime friend of media icon Oprah Winfrey, disclosed on Tuesday that Winfrey had been hospitalized due to a severe case of the stomach flu.

King mentioned on Tuesday that Winfrey had been scheduled for an appearance on her show, CBS Mornings, but had to cancel due to her hospitalization.

A spokesperson for Winfrey also told Page Six that the talk show icon is “recovering following a stomach flu and received an IV due to dehydration at the recommendation of her doctor.”

“She is resting and feeling better every day,” the statement added.

“I wanted to make it clear that [the book] matters to her and it really bothered her that she couldn’t be here today. She so, so loved this book,” King said on her show, adding that Winfrey will recover and make an appearance in the future.

“[I hope] she’s not mad at me for sharing that detail,” she said.
