Oprah Winfrey and her half-sister, Patricia are simply beautiful!!
Two years ago, the talk show host revealed that her mother, Vernita Lee had a daughter who she had given up for adoption because she realized that she couldn't afford to raise her, and now that Pat and Oprah are like BFFs, they're making up for lost time.
Yesterday, Miz Winfrey posted the pic of her and her sis (above) on Twitter, and wrote:

Patricia Arquette and her daughter Harlow Elliott were shopping until they dropped, but it turns out they are warrior champions whom cannot be stopped!
Or at least that is how it appeared to us when we saw them shopping for CVS pharmacy supplies - we hope they DIDN'T get everything that they needed.
Not because we're malicious or anything.
Just because we want to see them again, and again, and again, and again, and again!
They're that CUTE.

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!
"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!

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!
