Oprah Exploits Family for Ratings by Revealing Big Secret

CHICAGO, Ill. ---- Oprah Winfrey desperate for attention and ratings revealed Monday that a Milwaukee woman named Patricia was her long lost half-sister.  

"Yes, it is true," Winfrey told the audience of her daytime talk program, "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

“My mother Vernita is also Patricia's birth mother. That means Patricia is my half sister who I never knew existed until last November," Winfrey said.

Winfrey’s half-sister revealed Monday that she had been raised in foster homes since she was 7-years-old.

Exploiting her family for ratings, Winfrey said that her mother had given Patricia up for adoption because she thought it would be impossible to get off welfare with two children.

The 56-year-old Winfrey said she had no idea her mother was pregnant at the time because she was only seven and had been living with her father.

Patricia said she had known Oprah was her half-sister since 2007 but kept it quiet because unlike Oprah, she didn’t want the attention.

Winfrey's personal life has been well publicized by Winfrey herself and has talked ad nauseam about how she was born in Mississippi to unmarried parents and raised by her grandmother early in her childhood. During her teen years, she was shuttled between parents, and was the victim of abuse.

This recent family revelation only goes to show that Oprah may not be the devil, but she is sure as hell made a deal with him for fame and wealth. This writer thinks if given the opportunity, she would exploit him as well. Is there nothing sacred in Oprah’s life that she will not reveal for ratings? I seriously doubt it.
