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.

What is wrong with so many of the posters here? I think it is major major jealousy - MAJOR jealousy. If you don't like Oprah or Patricia, that's your right. Why be so mean spirited? Can't you just be happy for these people and be done with it. Are you truly that small? This woman, no matter what you think of her has done a lot of good for a lot of people. Whether it is for ratings or not or just out of the goodness of her heart - she has helped a lot of people. I think you are jealous because you're not one of them. She hasn't helped me either but gee give the woman a break.

Didn't Oprah also have a child she gave up for adoption? Will that be the next "Big Secret"?

If I was an adopted child I'd be making sure she was MY MOTHER!

JACKPOT!

Thanks a lot, TMZ. You do realize a whole bunch of us don't get Oprah's show until the afternoon, right? Was it really necessary to put a BIG FAT SPOILER right at the top of the page with no warning?

Anything for the ratings. I'm sick of OPRAH. Can you imagine how much of a drama queen she must be in real life. Who brings all this **** out in the public, only someone who thrives on attention and wants her new network to get a boost in ratings...

It's kind of pathetic, cause she's using her sister and mom...I hope they get well taken care of for the **** they have to go through for Oprah to get ratings and face time.

I am so sick of people putting Oprah down and calling her names. She said that she is not gay and just because she has a good close friend doesn't mean she is gay. You all are a bunch of haters and will not get to where Oprah is. Not everyone is like you because you did not make that connection with you long last brother, maybe because you are a jerk.

Gayle will alwsys be her friend and guess what she does not care one iota what you all think. Get a life.........losers

Leave it to Oprah to turn a private family matter into subject matter for her television show. I mean, the questions she asked were questions that you ask someone in private, not in front of cameras with millions of people watching. Way to capitalize on an opportunity O.
