Oprah Winfrey Reveals Her Family Secret on Her Show: She Has a Half-Sister, Patricia!

Oprah Reveals Her Big Secret: She Has a Half-Sister!

Oprah really is saving the best for the last season of her long-running TV show. Fresh off airing four episodes of Oprah’s Ultimate Australian Adventure in the US and Australia, Oprah revealed on Monday (US time) that she has a half-sister! When Oprah was nine, her mother Vernita Lee fell pregnant and gave up the baby for adoption. Oprah had no idea and only found out last October. On her show she said, “It was one of the greatest surprises of my life. It left me speechless.” She then introduced her half-sister, Patricia. The TV queen had hinted from last week that she was going to share a huge family secret with her audience, leading people to speculate on Twitter over what it could be. She had said last week, “I’ve been keeping a family secret for months, and you’re going to hear it straight from me.” What’s also amazing is how Patricia managed to stay mum on the whole thing. “She never once thought to go to the press,” Oprah said. “She never once thought to sell this story.”
