Your OWN Showâ€™s Oprah Winfrey has offered inspiring television content over the past 25 years, including the recent launch of her very own network, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). Fans have watched Oprah reunite many family members together on her ABC television talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show. But this time, Oprah is the one being reunited!
Today, Oprah herself will reveal the family secret she’s been keeping for months. â€œI thought Iâ€™d seen it all but this my friends is the miracle of all miracles,â€ She said in a promotional trailer for the episode on her website, â€œI was given some news that literally shook me to my core, this time Iâ€™m the one being reunited.â€
Oprah continued, â€œOnly a handful of people in my life know about this. Iâ€™ve been keeping a family secret for months and youâ€™re going to hear it straight from me.â€
According to SheKnows.com, 56 year old Oprah will reveal she has a half-sister named Patricia, who she never knew about until this past November. During Oprahâ€™s show,Â it’s beenÂ reported that the family explains how Oprahâ€™s mom, Vernita Lee, gave Patricia up for adoption because she didnâ€™t think she would be able to get off of welfare if she had another child. Patricia said she had been raised in foster homes since she was seven years old. At the time Oprah was nine years old and living with her father and had no idea. Patricia claims she found out Oprah was her half-sister in 2007.
Many viewers feel closely connected with the Queen of Daytime Talk as sheâ€™s been very open about her past experiencesâ€”especially those having to do with her familyâ€”including poverty, sexual abuse and the death of a son shortly after giving birth to him as a teenager.
