Taylor later apologised to Winfrey, who is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her hugely-popular programme, for her behaviour.
Winfrey recalls, "She later apologised to me, because she realised it was such a painful interview. She was in a lot of pain at the time, but I didn't know that.
"I just knew she was causing me a lot of pain. And she started off saying, 'Don't ask me about my husbands or relationships.'"
