We're happy to hear that they're taking the time to cultivate a real relationship instead of just rushing into it!

Oprah Winfrey appeared today on The Gayle King Show to talk further about her newly-discovered half-sister, Patricia - who was given up for adoption as an infant by their mother, Vernita Lee - and she revealed that they're taking their new relationship slowly!

She explained:

"We're taking it slow. I think it's about building a relationship one conversation – one experience – at a time. I think we have…the common interest of our mother. Everybody who's dealing with an ailing parent understands that process of getting care for them. And we're speaking regularly about that. I had her to dinner at my house the night before we taped the show. There were conversations about [Patricia's] family and how I can be helpful. She coming into the family at this time has been a great peace offering, a great symbol of peace-making in this family. I would say I see her as a gift."

We're pretty sure that the feeling is mutual, bb!

Luckily, you two now have the opportunity to really know each other as sisters, and hopefully build the relationship that you've deserved to have since childhood!

Things happen for a reason, and it's wonderful that you're both aware of what a gift it really is!

Thoughts??

    YAAAWN, THE REAL HALF-SISTA IS GAYLE. SHE'S BENEFITING MORE THAN ANY REAL FAMILY MEMBER THUS FAR. POOR PATRICIA. THE ODD SISTA OUT. GOOD LUCK CLIMBING UP THE MOUNTAIN.

    I can't believe that OPRAH thinks that many people give a sh*t.
    Her background is so screwy and like many African Americans, she's got HALF sibling this and HALF sibling that all over the place.

    Just goes to show, you can't predict what life will throw at you. Patricia seems like a kind, gracious person. Oprah should feel lucky (yet again).

    awwwww I would never know how that feels but I am glad things are working out.
    >>> whats the hate for? She was asked a question!! Its the topic of the week! Perez took a snippet from an interview so stfu!

    I can understand what she's saying. After all these years of being separated, I realize I wouldn't cross the street to say "hi" to my older sisters. To be related to them doesn't necessarily make me love them.

    This is really great news and I highly commend Oprah's half sister Patricia and her children for being discreet about this family secret for years. Like Oprah said she's been 'sold out' by family before, and Oprah's grateful thanks to Patricia was lovely to watch. Hope their relationship is a beautiful one and she continues to be one family member Oprah can truly trust.
