Tyler Perry Gets Oprah Winfrey in Bed With Roses

Tyler Perry's birthday gift to Oprah Winfrey was so big, she ended up spraining her back 

A rose might be a rose by any other name, but when it comes to the roses that Tyler Perry sent to Oprah Winfrey for her birthday, they also translate to a whole lot of pain.

Getty ImagesMedia mogul Winfrey — who turned 59 on Tuesday — revealed via her Twitter account that a bushel of roses sent to her as a b'day gift  from Perry totally bowled her over. And left her laid up in bed for a day after she injured herself moving them.

"In bed with an ice pack most of today. Moved a bushel of roses sent by @tylerperry and sprained a back muscle," Winfrey tweeted on Thursday to Twitter pal Lonnell Williams, adding the hashtag #birthdaylove.

By later in the day, however, Winfrey appeared to be on the mend, and informed her 16 million-plus Twitter followers that she was on the path to wellness.

"Standing upright again after a day in bed with an ice pack," Winfrey wrote. "Sharing birthday cake with my Daughter Girls!"

Even so, a wave of guilt washed over "Madea" mogul Perry, who tweeted, "I feel so bad" with a link to a Facebook post that expanded on the situation.

"I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday," Perry wrote. "She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry. :-( Next year I'm sending her one rose. :-)"

Probably a wise idea. Just make sure it's de-thorned.
