In a recent interview Oprah Winfrey admits her OWN network's initial failure nearly caused her to have a nervous breakdown...
Oprah tells People Magazine she was interviewing KONY 2012 founder Jason Russell about his nervous breakdown and realized she was suffering the same symptoms.
"Jason was talking about having a nervous breakdown, and I was thinking, 'I have those symptoms'."
"After 25 years of being number one, I had become accustomed to success. I didn't expect failure. I was tested and I had to dig deep. The schadenfreude (pleasure from misfortune of others) was very painful for me, because I had never experienced it."
