Oprah Winfrey Hospitalized with Stomach Virus, Dehydration

Oprah Winfrey has been hospitalized with a stomach virus.

On June 11, the 70-year-old was missing from a scheduled appearance on CBS Mornings to reveal her latest book club pick. During the broadcast, Gayle King addressed her absence.

“She had some kind of stomach thing — stomach flu — stuff was coming out of both ends,” she said. “I won’t get too graphic. Needless to say, she ended up in the hospital, dehydration, had to get an IV. 

“It was a very serious thing,” she added, noting that Winfrey tried to “rally” but needed to rest.

“She will be okay. I hope she’s not mad at me for sharing that detail,” King said of her longtime friend. “But I wanted to make it clear, though, that it mattered to her and that it really bothered her that she couldn’t be here for you today.”
