    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 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?

    If I were as rich as Oprah I'd pony up money to the man walking down the street.

    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.

    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.
    Erm.... I got nothin'

    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.

    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 )

    Gun Control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.
