On Monday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” the billionaire host will reveal a huge secret to her fans around the world. She teased about the big reveal last week, and today it’s time for the sh*t to hit the fan. Winfrey’s show airs at various times across the country, and if you can’t wait until it comes on in your neck of the woods, here’s what happens…
When it was initially announced at the beginning of the show, Winfrey decided to confirm the rumors that had been flying around about a secret family member.
“Yes, it is true. It is true that my mother, my mother Vernita is also Patricia’s birth mother. That means Patricia is my half sister who I never knew existed,” Winfrey said.
Winfrey’s mother gave birth to Patricia in 1963, but put her up for adoption because she couldn’t financially support another child. Patricia moved back and forth between foster homes until she was seven years old. Patricia first learned that she was the younger sibling of the famous mogul in 2007 but decided to keep the news a secret. She said she didn’t want to cause a media frenzy that would hurt Winfrey.
Patricia appears on today’s episode of the show and she reveals intimate details about her upbringing and how it was one of her children who discovered that Oprah Winfrey was her long lost sibling.
Are you surprised by this revelation? Did you think Oprah’s secret was something else?
