Oprah Winfrey is probably used to oversized gifts; as queen of daytime television for decades, she rose to the highest ranks of female businesswomen and became one of the richest people in the nation, which probably commands a little more effort from her friends when her birthday rolls around. But what do you get the lady who has everything?

If you’re Tyler Perry, you get her an enormous bouquet of flowers, which she subsequently strains her back trying to lift.

Perry apologized to Oprah on Facebook, promising a much smaller gift next year, but she took it in stride and waved it off.


I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry. :-( Next year I’m sending her one rose. :-)” he wrote on Facebook.

Oprah responded, “@tylerperry no need to feel bad, love the roses and got an extra day in bed. Can you say #icepack”.

Perry is rumored to be collaborating with Oprah on at least one sitcom series on her OWN network this year.
