During an episode of CBS Mornings, King shared that Winfrey needed medical attention due to a severe stomach virus.

“Yesterday, she said, ‘I’m going to rally, I’m going to rally.’ She had a stomach flu with symptoms coming from both ends. I won’t get too graphic,” King stated.

“She ended up in the hospital due to dehydration and had to receive an IV. It was a very serious situation,” King added.

Despite the ordeal, King reassured viewers, saying, “She will be OK. She will be OK,” and hoped Oprah wouldn’t be upset for sharing the details. King emphasized that Oprah was deeply concerned about missing the event.
