Oprah Winfrey has a half sister named Patricia, of whom she was unaware until October.
During her Oprah Winfrey Show on Monday, the popular host said that her biological mother, Vernita Lee, had given birth to another daughter besides Winfrey, and she had placed her for adoption. Patricia is now 47 years old.
“It was one of the greatest surprises of my life,” Winfrey said. “It left me speechless.”
In this way, Oprah confirmed the information revealed earlier by Kitty Kelley, author of an unauthorized biography entitled “Oprah: A Biography”.
“My life has been largely an open book. I thought nothing could surprise me, but I was wrong, “said the popular host.
Oprah Winfrey, her half-sister and their mother met on the set of the show.
For several days now, rumors were rife about the big family secret that was about to be unveiled.
Last Friday, Oprah said: “I thought I’d seen it all. But this, my friends, is the miracle of all miracles.”
