made her first Oprah Show
appearance in 1987. "It was just before Steel Magnolias
, so we've always talked like girlfriends," she says. "Everybody owns a little piece of Oprah, they feel like they do or they want to. She's like this precious thing that everybody feels proud to be part of."
Dolly has one parting message for Oprah: "I would just like to say to Oprah that I hope life treats you kind. And I hope you have all you ever dreamed of. And I wish you joy and happiness. And above all this, I wish you love. And I will always love you."
