Oprah Family Secret: Half Sister

January 24, 2011

It has been revealed that Oprah’s family secret is a half sister she didn’t know she had. Learn more about Winfrey’s newest sibling as well as how the big reveal came about. Plus check out a preview video clip for today’s show as well as some photos for the big “O “.


The queen of daytime talk said it would be a reunion that would top any reunion she had in the past 25 years and now we all know why. Turns out that Oprah’s family secret is Patricia, the half sister Winfrey had no clue about until this past Thanksgiving. It is a big reveal for sure and it is all going down today on the infamous daytime talk show.

Here is what Winfrey has released so far. Her mother gave up Patricia who went into foster care and was then adopted at age 7 because she couldn’t afford another child. The talk show host has been teasing viewers that there will be a reunion that will top all the reunions she had on the show in her past 25 years because it involved her.

So how did this news come to light? Well USA Today gives a vague recount of how back in 2007 Patricia was watching an interview with Vernita Lee, her and Winfrey’s mother and began to put the pieces together. Her son Andrew did an online search that resulted in Patricia realizing that Winfrey could be her sibling but she kept it quiet because she didn’t want to cause a media frenzy. I told you very vague so if you want answers like how did the two finally meet up, how did Winfrey learn she had another sibling, those kinds of things you will just have to watch the show today.

Oprah’s family secret reveals a half sister she didn’t know about and she talks about it for the first time on her show today. Get the tissues out my friends I have a feeling this is going to be a happy/sad episode that will make you cry for sure.
