Holy shiz! It's LEGIT!
Oprah Winfrey announced this morning that the family secret she's been teasing since last week is, in fact, that she has a HALF-SISTER, named Patricia, that she knew nothing about until this past November!
"For the most part my life has been an open book. I thought nothing could surprise me but I was wrong."
According to the talk show host, her mother, Vernita Lee, gave up the child, now 47, for adoption when she realized that she couldn't afford to raise her. Patricia was in foster care until she was seven, at which point she was adopted.
She's currently a single mother living in Milwaukee.
Such unbelievable and HAPPY news!
We cannot wait to see this entire interview in-full today! We imagine that there are going to be a lot of tears!
