Oprah Gets Her Ears Pierced on National TV

One of the great joys of The Oprah Winfrey Show was watching Oprah experience something for the first time and seeing her reaction. Whether she was babysitting five children or golfing with Clint Eastwood, her authentic self always came shining through.

Here, we look back on one such hilariously honest moment: the time Oprah had a small meltdown seconds before getting her ear pierced for the first time.

All month long, we’re celebrating the fifth anniversary of the final telecast of The Oprah Winfrey Show with commemorative online programming, including unforgettable show moments, follow-ups with your favorite guests and never-before-seen footage.

Viewers also have an opportunity to own their very own piece of The Oprah Show. Until Monday, May 16, a select number of studio audience chairs will be available for auction, with net proceeds going to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation.
