Oprah Turns 60 and 11 of Her Famous "Friends" Send "Gifts"


If you thought you had it hard shopping for gifts for your friends, try having to shop for Oprah Winfrey. The Queen of Everything and New Cars turns 60 today — Happy Birthday, O! — and even though she decided to forgo a birthday party because she's too totally popular doesn't mean those closest to her aren't going to reach out and gift anyway.

Considering O's status as a humble and non-braggart, we're sure she won't be dishing on what her famous friends got her, but with a little bit of ingenuity and a lot a bit of hypotheticals, we've deduced what gifts she's likely to receive.

Only by deduce we mean "completely made up" but hey — some of them sound pretty legit, if we do say so ourselves. But click through to see what you think.
