I wonder how her BFF Gayle is taking the news? Also, why, after all these years, hadn't her mother told her she had a sister somewhere. I could understand if Mom were dead, but nope.

O.k. Oprah if you say she's your long lost sister that you banished from your life!Because she revealed just a little to much information. So be it, my guess is the networks are ready to see you sign off but had to put a carrot in front of you. signed Respectively Bunny!

Whoop de doo. I have a half brother and half sister I've never met. I'm sure they are perfectly nice people but I couldn't care less if I ever meet them or not.

I don't understand why if she was afraid of media storm in 2007 when she found out about the sister, that she would choose to bring it to light now? It couldn't be for ratings, because I don't think this will be what people are expecting as a "surprise secret". I think this will create huge backlash for the show. People will gradually stop watching before this show comes to an end.

Oprah says she found out about her sister last November? Then why are there articles (with true or not true info in them) dating back to 2003, saying that Oprahs half sister Patricia died of an overdose?

This only goes to show Oprah runs the show - the world and the universe. Everyone stops and listens and gasps of what in the world could be so important. Meanwhile, they are children starving with no food every minute of the day right before Oprah big face.

Why do so many people feel they have to make rude, uncalled for comments about anyone famous. Stop and think about how you would feel if people said these things about you, or someone you care about.

Grow up.

My two cents ;)    

I am really impressed with her sister. She seems like a really good lady for rising from a sad situation. I hope Oprah stays close to her
