At least that's what she called herself!
According to biographer Kitty Kelley, Oprah's family denied that she was ever sexually molested. The TV queen has been through a lot in her life and Kelley gives the deets that she found tragic.
"Her family, I think, is in great denial of her sexual molestation. I believe Oprah. Now, her family doesn’t believe her, but that’s part of her life story. That she wasn’t believed, that there was nobody she could confide in. I happen to believe she was and that comes through in the book.
We’re talking about her secrets and at one point in her life, she was ready to get rid of some of those secrets when she was writing her autobiography. She was going to talk in detail about the men who had abused her, and she was going to name all of her abusers. And she was going to lay great blame on her mother for not taking better care of her. And she was also going to reveal that she was, in her words, a prostitute. I felt that was really a very harsh description that she would give herself.
She was literally saying that she was a prostitute. You know, she had talked about her sex abuse and her promiscuity in the past, but she had never used the word prostitute.
We can't believe what she's been through. So sad.
