Oprah Winfrey has a hit show on her Oprah Winfrey Network - "Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes," -- but recently, her camera crew went a little too far.

"They had a shot of me in the tub yesterday. I thought it was too much. C'mon people, we went a little too far behind the scenes with this shot!" Oprah joked in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

The TV talk show titan revealed that the program will feature more of her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, but she admitted she's surprised the show has been so well received because she, personally, doesn't feel her life "is that darn entertaining," she told THR.

The behind-the-scenes show, which centers around all the comings and goings behind her final season of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," will stop filming in May, several months before Oprah wraps up the talk show, which ends this fall.

After they're done with "Behind the Scenes," OWN will continue to document Oprah's life with another program - "Oprah's Next Chapter."

"'Oprah's Next Chapter' is a loose feel, like 'Behind the Scenes'... We'll shoot the interview wherever it's happening, in that sort of reality space," Oprah told the trade publication. "It's about trying to stay in the truth space, the reality space. It's also just making it good television."

With Oprah's final "Oprah Winfrey Show" just months away, the talk show host said she feels she made the right decision to end her 25-year run.

"I'm so happy I didn't stay in the wing until I was punch drunk and people had to drag me out with my microphone and say, 'Enough already!'" she said. "I always thought I would take my cues from the viewers. I took the cue from the landscape of television. It got harder and harder and harder to raise the bar every day. What we're doing is primetime television done in the daytime. The amount of money spent, editors... everything it takes to do this show... it got harder to raise the bar."
