Oprah's Mystery Man Exposed!

11/6/2008 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The man whose shoulder Oprah Winfrey used to cry on at Barack Obama's victory rally was a total stranger -- but we found out who he is.
Oprah Winfrey
Sam Perry, a corporate development consultant, happened to be in the right place at the right time and comforted lady O as she cried for joy.

Stedman better watch his step.

UPDATE 4:43 PM ET -- O and Perry have already set up a second date -- on her show! He'll appear on Friday's episode.

Thank God, TMZ lightened the picture. I couldn't see anything but the whites of Oprah's eyes before.

OK, now that we've elected a black President, does that mean I don't have to pay reparations for what my great great grandparents did to somebody's black great great grandparents?

Hey Oprah,

Lay off the fried foods and cut back your portions.

I hate that b*tch! For her to call someone a racist is RICH! What an utter phony hypocrite.
Now go celebrate with 36 buffalo wings, 4 strawberry daquiris and a half gallon of DARK CHOCOLATE Haagen-Dazs, pudgy.

Is Canada even a real country?

Kevin, Canada is the country north of the U.S. You know the country that helps the U.S. every time the U.S. gets into a war overseas.

I dont care if he is black, purple , white whate ever color- Its sad your race has to vote on skin color rather than what the persons beliefs are.

Oprah, it's interesting that you turned to a stranger when Stedman was right there. I don't get it.

Oprah's relationship with Stedman is nobody's business with the exception of themselves.

Congratulations to the voters who got this election right! After eight years of suffering and feeling oppressed, we can now celebrate an authentic leader and his beautiful family, including two pretty little girls and maybe a puppy, living in the White House.

Blessings to President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden and their respective Families!

Jon Stewart said it best last night. He talked of the white guy Oprah had purchased to lean on during the Obama acceptance speech. Then he went on to say on the next episode of Oprah's Favorite things they would announce to the audience to look under their seats, shouting "you get a white guy and you get a white guy and you get a white guy!"
It was priceless.

And the only thing I don't like about Oprah is that she is always all over my man Bono every time she sees him. She has one hell of a crush on him.
