Native speaker’s answer

Rebecca

Oprah Winfrey is a famous American celebrity and billionaire, and her long-term boyfriend is Stedman Graham. Therefore, the speaker here is making a joke saying that the non-disclosure agreement he wants Eddie to sign is that same one Oprah made her boyfriend Stedman sign, even though we do not know if Oprah made Stedman sign a non-disclosure agreement. He is suggesting that Oprah made her boyfriend Stedman sign a non-disclosure agreement because she is wealthy and famous, and kept her boyfriend Stedman a secret for a long time.
