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.

Enjoy and be happy for what life brings. Concentrate on that needle in your haystack better yet, the skeleton in your closet. Life is full of surprises good and bad. Now, How are you going to act. Regardless of the other persons situation or Life Choices just be happy for them especially when they have really in a sense and in many instances tried to be there for you. Stop worrying about Oprah, her sister and Gayle. They can all be friends. Keith C.

it's called "spreading sisterly love"....exposing someone your mother created due to her own lack of control/morals and exposing this woman to the media and public as the "bastard" of the family her mother gave away.......nice Oprah.......another way for Oprah to gain notary.......this is not what we know sisterly love to be......glad WE arent related to Oprah! That was really in poor taste to expose this woman as she was. and what was the reasoning of it? so Oprah could handle it better? or get more noticed? hummm, all these family horror stories she comes out with to benefit tho she was the only one ever to be sexually abused.....or have a sibling nobody knew about.....OPRAH.....the one who needs fame using others to get it. Really sad/ hope she gets therapy AGAIN soon.(and we mean Oprah, not the sister)Good luck to the other new sister found......we hope Oprah shares her fortune with you for exposing your story as hers..

I think it's wonderful to be in contct with your family.That is truley a blessing and I don't think that they should be angry with their mother for that.We all go through things it's always good to know where you come from no matter who you are.For all the Oprah haters sit down seriously.Do you think Oprah cares if you give a dam or not.She is sitting on top while you are just sitting.For the record who ever said she brought her sister out like a bastard definetly wish they were that BASTARD.......LMFAO............LOL
