'Oprah's Next Chapter' travels to India

Oprah Winfrey said that her next move following the end of her long-running talk show would be to get out of the studio and start exploring, and she does just that in Sunday's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter."

The media mogul chronicles her first trip to India in Sunday's episode, and she packs in quite a bit. Not only does she visit the Taj Mahal and meet Bollywood stars, but she also sees what it's like to live in a 10-foot-by-10-foot home, as one family does, and visits with another for a traditional Indian meal.

"There is nothing like this country," Oprah says in a preview clip. "I'm forever changed by this experience."

You can check out photos from Oprah's visit to Mumbai here, and watch her experience in the country Sunday on OWN at 9 p.m. ET.

Oprah Winfrey opens up on her OWN mistakes

Having her OWN network has been more than she bargained for, CEO and media personality Oprah Winfrey said Monday.

After canceling Rosie O'Donnell's primetime program on OWN and conducting what she calls the painful task of laying off 30 of her staffers at the developing network, Winfrey told "CBS This Morning" that the road to developing OWN has been so rocky, that she might even consider doing something different if given the opportunity.

"Creating a network was something that I'd wanted to do. Had I known that it was this difficult, I might've done something else," she told "CBS This Morning's" Charlie Rose and her gal pal Gayle King. "I didn't think it was going to be easy, but if I knew then what I know now, I might've made some different choices."

Whitney's sister-in-law: Singer looked for love in wrong places

When Winfrey inquires if Patricia thought drugs would one day cause Houston's death, Patricia says, "The handwriting was kind of on the wall. I would be kidding myself to say otherwise."

But, she continues, "things were changing" with Houston, and "very much so."
