Grab your hankies

The Oprah Winfrey 'Surprise Spectacular' juggernaut rolled into Chicago yesterday for the final installment in the chat show host's farewell tour. But the star didn't just get handed a gold clock and bouquet of wilting flowers for her efforts, oh no, she had the cream of Hollywood society fighting to out-gush each other. But it was Winfrey's husband, Stedman Graham who got the tear-ducts into action, with his moving tribute.

Oprah's hubby told his wife, 'You are so special. I'm so proud of you. It really amazes me that I got to be around a woman who changes people's lives every day and who also takes her own lunch to work. I can't believe that a coloured girl from the back woods of Mississippi has done all that you have done. But what is really amazing is that you have done this... through God's amazing grace. I love you for making the difference in my life.'

Oprah is giving up her chat show to focus on her 'OWN' TV network, which she established in January.
