Oprah Meets Her New Boyfriend

|

If you watched President-Elect Barack Obama‘s acceptance speech Tuesday night, you couldn’t help but notice the chunky nerd Oprah Winfrey was clinging to as Obama brought down the house (seen above on the left). Fans of the O might have gasped nervously, as we all know she’s essentially in a common law marriage with Stedman Graham, but he was there too, standing behind her as she draped herself all over this new man. Oprah’s new favorite thing was not a bodyguard, a publicist, or an anonymous super-rich dude, but a just stranger she felt like embracing. “I don’t know him, but he was very nice to me,” Oprah said she told her friends. “At one point I was just sobbing on his shoulder, mascara everywhere.”

Oprah can hug whoever she wants, whenever she wants, and Sam Perry, volunteer Communications Director of the Silicon Valley Obama office, just happened to be that guy on Tuesday night. But don’t feel too bad for Oprah’s one night stand – he’ll be appearing on her show today for more tears.  [Sun-Times. Photo: GettyImages]
