Yes, there's a family out there that's going to be millionaires soon. And that's because she's related to Oprah.
Recently, Oprah Winfrey says she has discovered a long-lost half-sister. The Queen of All Media had made a big to-do about how she'd reveal a family secret on Monday's show. And this is it.
In 1963, when Oprah was 9, her mother, Vermita Lee, put a child up for adoption and never told Oprah. That child had a father who was not Oprah's dad. On Monday's show, 48 years later, Oprah and Patricia (last name withheld) were reunited with Lee.
DNA tests confirmed the sisterhood. In searching for her birth mother, Patricia stumbled on the astounding truth. She then began the long work of contacting Oprah privately ("family business needs to be handled by family," she said).
Patricia has a daughter, Aquarius, and a son, Andre, giving Oprah a half-niece and -nephew. Sadly and ironically, Oprah had another half-sister named Patricia; she died in 2003.
