Oprah's Sister -- My Old Wisconsin Home

1/26/2011 9:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This house in Wisconsin belongs to Oprah Winfrey's half-sister ... TMZ has learned -- but now that O knows she exists, it probably won't be Oprah's sister's house for long!!

O's half-sis Patricia -- who just met Winfrey for the first time back in November -- lives in this 1,070 sq. foot house in Milwaukee ... that includes 4 bedrooms and only 1 bathroom.

According to Zillow.com -- the estimated value of the house is somewhere around $55,500 ... which Oprah could probably find in her couch cushions. 

So we gotta ask ...

Here is a similar story

She was the family secret that Oprah Winfrey called "one of the greatest surprises" of her life.

But on Monday's Oprah Winfrey Show, Patricia, the media mogul's half-sister, stepped forward in a very public way.

During the show, Winfrey revealed that she learned she had a sister last October, saying the discovery "left me speechless."

Good for Patricia for keeping that secret as long as she did! It would have been really easy for her to go to the press and sell Oprah out, but she never thought of doing that b/c it's
"family business." This woman is set for life!!!!

The douche bag behind NASCAR's Dale Earnhardt Jr's demise....

Apparently he is a major investor in PEPSICO and wants the same girl Jr does, but she doesn't want him, so he forbids them to be together. I guess when your a trillionaire you aren't used to being told "NO" very often. If he can't have her, he won't let anyone have her. And he beats his employees.

Oprah doesn't seem to care much about family members. She nearly broke up on the show when she talked about how her other sister went to the press with the story that Oprah was pregnant at 14. But she doesn't hesitate a minute to broadcast worldwide --even to do promo's-- to spead the story that her mother had a child she couldn't afford to keep. Doesn't matter that her mother tried to keep the secret for 47 years. Doesn't matter that her mother is still ashamed. Doesn't matter that her mother --oh, by the way-- can't speak so well because she just had a stroke! And what does Oprah "give" to her mom? Only the message that her mom should can the shame. Can't believe that Gayle went blabbing on her show about this "invaluable gift."

If I were Oprah, sister or not; I would wait and see how the relationship developed. You have to have a bond/feelings for a person, in order to feel that way. I think her sister is 90% genuine, and Oprah doesnt owe any of her family squat.

I really love this story. I feel so happy for Pat, but, I do think Oprah will let Pat decide if she wants to upgrade. I agree about the ratings aspect of this because after all Oprah is an actress!!BUT at the same time she has a heart and hopefully they will form a wonderful bond. They have years of catching up. I actually feel happy for Oprah as well.

Oprah's compassion and sense of responsibility will compel her to take care of her relatives as long as they are halfway decent people.

Patricia did not go to the tabloids or anywhere else for that matter upon finding out who her family is. Her house looks very well kept inside and out and she bought it by herself through hard work. This is a woman who just wanted to find out who she was and who her family is. Her sister could just have been some junkie living on the streets, but, it happened to be Oprah. So what. She has two children that seem to be well adjusted and she has done well for herself alone. I wish the family nothing but the best.

I cannot believe that the media is just now finding this out. If you people were from the WI area, then you would know that Oprah just found this out. She has been knowing this for years, we have proof. She just saved this info for her last shows before her departure.

I think Oprah is wonderful and has done some excellent things with the $$ she has been blessed with, but I believe she did just what she complained her sister did - sold her mother out. She and Patricia could have had a wonderful life together outside of the public eye. Was it ratings or revenge against her mother who she does not believe treated her fairly as a child? Makes me question her motive on this one.
