If anyone is capable of giving the best relationship advice of all time, it’s definitely Oprah Winfrey.
Taking to the Instagram account for O, The Oprah Magazine this week, the TV mogul answered questions from fans on a number of topics. Of course, one fan couldn’t help but ask the slightly personal question, “What is the perfect date night with Stedman?” Thankfully, Oprah didn’t shy away from answering it.
Opening up about her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, with whom she’s been in a relationship for over 30 years, Oprah revealed: “My favorite date night is to make him black-eyed peas and cornbread as a surprise for dinner.” And that’s not all. Oprah also revealed, “Honey, hush. That’s all you need. Little black-eyed peas, cornbread. That’s it. Perfect date night. Me cooking and then it’s on.”
So there you have it. Cornbread and black-eyed peas, that’s really all you need:

Oprah met Graham in 1986 at a charity event in Chicago. According to an article in People magazine in 1992, Oprah revealed that not everyone was thrilled about her relationship with the divorced former college basketball player. Oprah told People at the time, “They figured if he looked like that, he either had to be a jerk or want something. Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo. But you want someone who’ll help you catch the bus.”
However, Oprah’s relationship stood the test of time, and after 32 years together, it’s pretty appropriate that we’re all taking relationship advice from the icon.
