What Really Freaks Oprah Out?

Oprah revealed in O The Oprah Magazine (damn, wonder who she had to screw to get that coverage!) something that “really freaks” her out. And it’s Billy Joel.

Hey, just kidding!!! Oprah would never be afraid of one William Joel. No, Oprah’s big fear is BALLOONS!

Not kidding this time, promise. Here’s what she said in O (via People):

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?’ It reminds me of gunfire. [Being around them] really freaks me out.

You know what? I agree with Oprah on this one. Balloons are f-cking terrifying.  The following image is NSFO (Not Safe For Oprah).
