Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, LIVE with Kelly and Michael

Oprah Winfrey is full of surprises.

No, she didn't hand out any cars on Tuesday, but the former talk show queen did make an unexpected appearance (her first!) on Live With Kelly and Michael, thereby bringing joy to the entire studio audience and, of course, cohosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan.

The visit came thanks to Tyler Perry, who was there to chat up his new series, The Haves and the Have Nots, on Winfrey's OWN Network.

"There are so many things I've always wanted to ask you, but now that you're here, they're out of my head," a stunned Ripa told Winfrey.

"I'm so delighted to be here," Winfrey replied before declaring that Strahan and Ripa are now "the reigning king and queen" of daytime.

Not a bad compliment. Especially considering the source!
