PAINED: Dr. Emily Pollard, a plastic surgeon, pierced Oprah Winfrey's ears on the TV mogul's show Monday, inserting a small diamond stud. "Ohhhh!" Oprah reacted as the needle did its trick. "I need a shot of tequila!" The audience also screamed, the New York Post reports. Only one question remained: Why hadn't Oprah done this before? "I just turned 51, and I'm feeling stronger and better than ever," she said. "This year, I wanted to give myself a special birthday present." After the procedure, she admitted: "That did not not hurt."
