Kitty Kelley sez she knows....
But that is hardly earth-shaking....
Kitty Kelley is sleaze.
And a guilty pleasure
No, I don't like biographies to be fiction.
Well, the thread is about Oprah's secret...never mind about Kitty and her sources. That was just a theory.
That will be one lucky half-sister. She's probably prancing around her house right now singing "I'm in the money..." .
I almost wish it were me....
Now, to Oprah everything is earth-shaking. I wouldn't be surprised if it's just that she has a half sister.
she already had some half siblings, what is one more?
now if her half sibling was sarah palin or something to give it a twist, then yes, that is earth shaking
Or that she discovered a toe-jam cleaning machine.
When I first saw the commercial I guessed something like a half-sister. Which frankly isn't that earth shattering I don't think. I mean, well .... I bet there's lots of people out there with half-siblings they know nothing of. I think if it was something like she had a child at 14 and gave up for adoption or something, we woulda been hearing it all over the place. That's my guess anyway.
PS: Can I be Oprah's half-sister too?
Maybe she and Stedman are married!
Or her and Gayle are married? Or she has found the magic pill to lose weight and will make a jillion dollars more!
Oprah finds a half sister she didn't know she had.
Is Oprah going to give Patty lots of ?
Way to work the hype for ratings. I'm assuming Oprah Inc is not happy that it is out before the show airs everywhere.
Whatever the sekret is , if it involves OPRAH, it's gonna be really weepy and everyone is going to be drowning in each other tears
It's a good week to buy stock in Kleenex
Can I be her long lost sister?
I hope they do some DNA testing before the sister gets included in the will.
Do people still care about Oprah Winfrey?
I think those that always have still do and those who never did still don't.
ITA. It's the last year of her show, so long time fans are glued to their tvs.
Interesting that the woman found out in 2007, but Oprah didn't find out for 3 years. Consulting lawyers perhaps? Or trouble getting past Oprah's outer perimeter to share the happy news?
i would aim higher for the group of people who got the free trip to australia
I think Oprah has known about this for longer than she is letting on...
If you were rich, like Oprah, would you automatically pony up money to your new 1/2 sister?
How's the O network doing that kicked off January 1? I don't get that channel.
If I were as rich as Oprah I'd pony up money to the man walking down the street.
Big secret? She is preparing to pony-up the money that it will take to buy the Illinois Supreme Court for Rahm Emanuel.
Give it up - what you don't know about politics fills Soldier's Field.
It seem the birth mother really didn't want to br found. How was this woman able to find out anyway?
Is Oprah's mother still alive? if so, how's she taking this?
Sorry, I didn't read the link, not an Oprah fan but still mildly curious.
Especially JOHOOOOOON TRAAVOOLTAAAAAAA!!!
True -- Rahm is more likely to give people dead fish than money.
I'm not exactly an Oprah fan. I'm not really into talk shows. But, whether or not a fan, Oprah is an amazing human being. She has done remarkable things with her money. I have a lot of respect for her.
Quote of the day!
so what is her secret? I always thought she had too much make up on.. maybe she is a man? a drag queen?
She has a half sister. The sister has known since 2007 that Oprah was her sister, but never went public with it.
Sounds like this woman is Oprahs 1/2 sister thru her mother. From what I read earlier, the 1/2 sister knew that she had two 1/2 siblings that died, and that she had a 1/2 sister who was being raised by her father in Tennessee. She tried contacting her birth mother, but she refused contact. Then, she saw Oprahs mother doing an interview, and describing the same family situation (2 departed sibs, daughter in Tennessee). She then contacted a cousin of Oprahs and they did DNA.
If I find where I read this earlier, I'll post the link.
ETA: no need for me to look... the post above mine has all the details.
But my point is that the mother clearly did not want to be found, for whatever reason. What are the rights these days for parents who give up kids for adoption? Obviously this woman was able to circumvent that by finding a cousin to provide DNA, but I just wonder if the mother is allowed to keep refusing contact.
And Whitney Houston…
Have you ever seen Kathy Griffin's bit where she imitates Oprah interviewing Whitney Houston? (the part I'm talking about doesn't start until 5:30, but it's worth the wait )
ETA: Or even better, Deeeeep Fried BUUUUUUUTTTTEEEEEERRRRRR at the Texas STATE FAIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
