When Oprah turned 50 years old, her best friend, Gayle King, and the Harpo team wanted to make the party a true blowout bash. While Oprah was away, they filled the studio with friends, family and special decorations. They also prepped a few special guests behind the scenes. One of them, a household name and dear friend of Oprah's, gave a toast so moving that it brought tears to the birthday girl's eyes.
