Gayle King -- It Doesn't Pay to Be Oprah's Half-Sister

2/10/2011 12:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey isn't going to cut a huge check to her newly discovered half-sister Patricia just because they're related ... at least not yet ... because Gayle King says "that isn't how Oprah operates."

Gayle was out in New York City last night, where she told us Oprah and Patricia were off to "a really good start ... and they're both taking it very slow."

Gayle says Patricia earned serious points by not exploiting the fact that she was Oprah's half-sister -- despite knowing about the relationship since 2007.

Agree with #2. Empress Oprah done this show for RATINGS!! Brown-Nosed Gayle is threatened by her half sister that is why Gayle made that statement. You don't hear much from Stedman.

Oprah only gives away on TV for huge tax right-offs. The people who are given this stuff are on the hook for taxes.

She has exploited 200 men for ratings, her sister and her own hooker mother.....If she was not black her show would have ended years ago.

She will come out after her ABC show ends.

Get real, her new "sister" is well aware that "Oprah's check" is going to be much bigger than the "tabloid check". THAT'S why she didn't sell her story.

Why does Oprah like this gold digging skank. This woman needs to be cut off and she should get a real job.

Gayle King says "that isn't how Oprah operates."

Correction, "That isn't how Oprah operates and I should know because we've been lovers for years and I've only gotten my own TV show one time."

If her sister has known since 07 and hasn't said anything, I'm pretty sure Oprah has been paying her to keep her yapper shut since then..because any normal person would tell somebody!!

I don't care for Oprah personally but she will never run out of money. That woman is a mogul. She will set up a trust for her sister then her and Gayle will ride off into the $un$et.
All people in her line of business are ratings wh*res so of course she will do what she needs to for ratings but let's face it, she isn't starving for followers.

To Javera, Why do you keep calling everyone a racist? You're the racist. You started with "Margo" and if you read her post non aggressively you might realize she's making a statement. Unlike all of your name calling. Read the post as an individual, not as a black person or a white person or any other color. He who screams Racist loudest IS the racist!!!!!!

What a bunch of pathetic bigots, rooting for a black woman's failure all because you're too lazy to achieve anything yourself.

Why don't you knock off the "BLACK" woman crap. She's a very successful woman, simple as that, the fact that you continuously refer to her heritage just makes it sound like "Black" is the only colour that matters and the rest of us don't. Sounds a lot like Racism to me!!!

Wow what is wrong most of you. Good gravy - Whether you like Oprah or not, she has done some wonderful things to help people. Be happy for them instead of being jealous for yourself.
