'Wrong Shoes!': Oprah Recovers Like A Pro After Stage Tumble

Oprah Winfrey didn't miss a beat after tripping and falling on stage in front of fans in Los Angeles.

The talk show queen was discussing the importance of "balance" as part of her new cross-country arena tour, which features celebrity guests and a focus on the transformation of mind, body and spirit.

"Here's my definition of what wellness means to me," she told the audience in LA, adding that it was her personal definition, "not yours because you're going to be defining it for yourself".

"Wellness, to me, means all things in balance, and balance doesn't mean all things are equal or at peace at all times," said Oprah, right before her stilettoed foot became unsteady.

Winfrey hit the floor as the entire audience gasped in concern, but the consummate professional recovered gracefully and with a well-timed quip.

"Wrong shoes!" she announced at the end of the footage obtained by the LA Times.

Fans who attended the session or watched the video on Twitter applauded Oprah for her inspirational talk, and ability to bounce back without causing a fuss.

The 2020 Vision: Your Life In Focus tour has so far featured conversations with celebs including Lady Gaga, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Amy Schumer, Tina Fey and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Winfrey spoke to Jennifer Lopez during the recent Los Angeles show, who discussed processing rejection after she failed to score an Academy Award nomination for her role in Hustlers.

"I was sad, I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it," Lopez explained, per the Hollywood Reporter.

‘May The Force Be With Us’: Australia Is Getting A Star Wars Festival

In a drought-ravaged rural community far, far away... locals are proving they're a force to be reckoned with by launching a Star Wars-themed festival in Coonabarabran -- Australia's astronomy capital.

Lopez said the positive reviews and Oscars buzz she received meant it was a harsh blow when Hustlers was ignored altogether.

"I’m reading all the articles going, 'Oh my god, could this happen?' And then it didn’t and I was like 'Ouch,' it was a little bit of a letdown," she said.

"Also I felt like my whole team -- most of my team has been with me for years, 20, 25 years -- and I think they had a lot of hopes on that and they wanted it too, so I felt like I let everyone down a little bit."

Winfrey's final stop on her tour will be Denver, Colorado on March 7 and will feature a conversation with her best friend, Gayle King.
