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.

"Oprah: Sister, no sister, anything Oprah..don't care."

To all the haters out there..Oprah takes very good care of her mother and father believe that! She paid off her mothers large clothing bill that mom neglected and if anyone has ever seen Oprahs dad they look exactly alike so to assume he isn't her real dad is just stupidity.

How convenient that she "found" this long lost sister during sweeps. Wonder what sort of contracts this sister was made to sign before Oprah acknowledged her What amount of money was agreed on before she was trotted out for the adoring masses?

I have two half sisters that don't claim me or their father.

It's their loss. I fully look for them when my Father passes on to cause all sorts of Legal Hell for me, too.


Hope Bunny (not Patricia - the dead one - this one is named Bunny) isn't like hem!

lentina Inc. filed suit against Vernita Lee in July 2008 after the Oprah-birther failed to make good on her minimum monthly payments. Attorneys for Lee played the blame game in their defense, saying the store was at fault for extending her a line of credit in the first place, what with her history of less than stellar repayment practices.

Still, the suit has now been settled and will remain sealed, giving some credence to the report that it was Oprah herself who stepped in to bail out her mother. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the store will receive a partial payment of what was owed.
