Cher was caught off-guard during a visit to The Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah didn't warn her ahead of time, that she would be sharing footage of her giving the eulogy at ex-husband Sonny's funeral. Until that moment, Cher was not even aware that such footage existed. She took a 45 minute leave to gather herself and stop crying to rejoin the taping of the episode. Oprah apologized, citing that the footage was not intended to upset Cher, it was just part of a tribute to her legacy.
