Oprah gets her ear pierced
Everyone remembers Oprah's blowout 50th birthday celebration last year. What could she possibly do for an encore to celebrate 51?

Oprah decided to do something she's never done before: get her ears pierced! "I've worn the most expensive jewelry—all my own—and have always only had clips," Oprah says. "I've been afraid to have my ears pierced."

This was an occasion for another first—Oprah's first treatment with a plastic surgeon! Dr. Emily Pollard performed the ear-piercing procedure.

After this show aired, many women wrote into the show admitting their fear of piercing their ears!
