Stedman Graham worships his long-time girlfriend Oprah Winfrey -- and he thinks fans should too!

"I don't think they understand the value of who she is as a human being and what she's done," Graham, 49, told Chicago Fox affiliate WFLD. "Because a prophet has no honor in his own town."

(The claim that Winfrey, 56, is a prophet is actually a Biblical reference from John 4: "For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.")

The businessman insists that Chicagoans don't appreciate the talk show queen and all she's done for the Windy City. She plans to move to Los Angeles to launch her own TV network, OWN, when her talk show goes off the air in 2011 after 25 years on the air.

"I think they take her for granted a lot," he continued. "I'm just saying, from an insider's point of view, that I don't think she gets the just due based on who she really is and what she's done for the Chicagoland area... she's a great humanitarian, a great leader."

But Winfrey is more than just humanitarian -- she knows how to party too!

Last month, Winfrey told UsMagazine.com she planned to let loose at the Met Gala afterparties in NYC. "I like tequila and I will have a few shots this evening!" said an Oscar de la Renta-clad Winfrey.
