Tyler Perry's well-intentioned birthday gift to longtime pal Oprah Winfrey didn't go over quite how he expected. The actor, director and screenwriter sent Winfrey a huge bouquet for her 59th birthday, but Winfrey's joy was short-lived, Perry shared on his Facebook on Wednesday, Jan. 30.
"I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion," Perry wrote in a message under the heading "I feel so bad." "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," he continued, adding a sad-face emoticon for effect. "Next year I'm sending her one rose."
Winfrey and the 43-year-old "Madea" director are longtime friends, and the pair are set to collaborate on several sitcom series on the media mogul's OWN Network later this year.
On Tuesday, however, Winfrey's focus was less business and more pleasure.
"Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes. Enjoying lunch with Stedman," she shared with her fans on Twitter. "No plans to leave p.j.'s all day."
The iconic talk show host enjoyed a plethora of birthday wishes from her famous friends throughout the day in addition to her fans' messages.
