Bridgette's Big Break
But during breakfast, Bridgette starts feeling sick. "I was eating my breakfast—cottage cheese, flaxseed and raspberries," she says. "My eyes started to kind of itch a little bit. I couldn't breathe. Everyone on my team was like, 'You need to get to the emergency room right now.'"
Bridgette arrives at the emergency room to discover she's having a near-fatal allergic reaction to raspberries. "It's my first ever one-on-one—just me and Oprah pre-show—and I am not missing it for an allergic reaction to raspberries," she says. "This happened on the worst day possible."
