Oprah Winfrey REVEALS Secret -- I Have a Sister!

1/24/2011 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey spilled the beans on her big secret today on her show ... she has a long lost sister!

Oprah's Sister
Turns out The Big O has a half-sister named Patricia -- who was put up for adoption at a young age and bounced around foster homes until she was finally adopted at the age of 7. Oprah said her mother Vernita Lee never told her about Patricia.

Oprah, Patricia and her mother were all reunited on the show.

Buh-bye, Gail! No, only kidding. That's so sad and wonderful at once. Gail probably filled the void of that sister Oprah, deep down, knew she wanted/had.

I have a long lost brother who I met about 8 years ago, when I was about 26. When I found I had a long lost brother I didn't care. I met the guy and didn't have any emotions at all and have never talked since.

I've never understood why people care about siblings they've never met. They're not your family anymore.

orca doesn't help her mama and daddy. remember when her mama went ape sh*t crazy buying clothes? $200,000+. didn't pay the bill. shop owner sued her. she didn't think she had to pay cause orca is her daughter.

orca only shares with gayle.

i feel sorry for patricia. finding out she's related to the biggest famewhore on the planet. bless her heart.

Wow. Stop the freakin' presses!!

Oprah acted like there was gonna be a second coming or something.

This just makes her more like the rest of us humble people.
Hopefully it will bring her down a notch or two.

There are so many people that do good things but they don't publicize it.

Well I guess dead people can make a come back. As I read back in 2003 that Oprah's half-sister Patrica died of an over-dose in a Wisconsin Apartment. So, I mean what the???
