- by admin
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Sunday, Oprah Winfrey said that her mother’s death was a “unjust, senseless thing to go through.”
“It was gut-breaking.
It was not a pleasant thing to do.
I have no words,” Winfrey told Cooper.
“It’s an ugly thing to know that your mother was killed in the most senseless of ways.”
Winfrey, 83, told Cooper that she was “terrified” and “angry” after learning that her mom, Oprah, had been diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer.
The Oprah Winfeldt Show was filmed on November 14, and the interview aired live on CNN on Sunday.
“The death of my mom was not something that we had any kind of control over.
It’s the nature of the beast,” Winfleth told Cooper, adding that she and her husband, Chris, had no idea until they got to the hospital that Oprah had the disease.
“I have no idea where I would have been without my mom, and I don’t know how I would be without my husband,” she said.
“My mom was my life, and it was taken away from me.”
Winfords daughter, Toni, was diagnosed with lung cancer in January 2016 and died three weeks later.
Winfrey had previously spoken out against the way her mother was treated in the aftermath of her death, saying that she would have preferred her to be able to walk.
The former ABC News star had said in October that her life had been “devastated” by the diagnosis.
“If my mom had known, I think she would not have been in the hospital,” she told People.
It doesn’t belong in this world. “
This is what’s happened to my family, the pain and the trauma of this disease.
It doesn’t belong in this world.
On November 8, the day before her death was officially announced, Oprah was hospitalized with pneumonia, according to TMZ. “
In the end, it was the only way that I could live my life,” Winfers daughter said.

The day after the interview, Winfrey released a statement through her personal account: “My family and I are heartbroken.
I am in shock and mourning for my mother, who passed away last night, from lung cancer, on Tuesday.
My thoughts are with her and her family.
She was a pioneer for me and so many others in helping people, particularly the young, through this difficult time.”
Win Fords daughter has since tweeted that she is “shocked, devastated, and heartbroken.”
In the meantime, Oprah is not in the best of health.
The actress had been scheduled to perform at the Grammys on Sunday but was unable to attend due to illness.
On Thursday, Winf’s longtime manager, the actor Mark Burnett, confirmed that Winfrey was diagnosed in early February with lung and liver cancer.
“Oprah is a wonderful human being, a talented actress and a brilliant and inspiring person,” Burnett told TMZ.
“As a longtime friend, she will always be a special part of my life.”
On Friday, the actress and her publicist released a joint statement from the couple: “Opraha and I will never forget her kindness and generosity, her courage and strength.
We are so proud of her.
She will be forever missed by all.”
