    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..." :lol:.

    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

    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? :p

    That's it?

    Way to work the hype for ratings. I'm assuming Oprah Inc is not happy that it is out before the show airs everywhere.

    Can I be her long lost sister?

    I hope they do some DNA testing before the sister gets included in the will.

    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 :bribe: perhaps? Or trouble getting past Oprah's outer perimeter to share the happy news?

    If you were rich, like Oprah, would you automatically pony up money to your new 1/2 sister?

    Big secret? She is preparing to pony-up the money that it will take to buy the Illinois Supreme Court for Rahm Emanuel.

    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. ;)

    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.

    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.
