Oprah's secret revealed; readers offer better revelations
Well, after a whole morning of wild anticipation, the big secret's been revealed: Oprah Winfrey has a half-sister. It turns out that when the talk show host was 9, her mother gave up a child for adoption. Forty-eight years later, the two sisters were finally reunited in November and promptly recorded for Oprah's last season.
As Lisa de Moraes writes with absolutely no cynicism whatsoever:
So, on today's show, you're going to see Oprah and her Newly-In-November-Discovered Half-Sister Patricia sit down with their mother, Vernita Lee, so Oprah can ask Lee how she feels about being reunited with Patricia. Which does NOT, in case you were thinking, qualify as being "exploited by the media." Because it's Oprah.
While it's quite lovely to have a sister, the secret is a bit of a letdown. I was hoping she was going to announce her three children that she had studiously kept out of the spotlight by sending them all to finishing schools in Sweden. Or perhaps she would admit to finally making an honest man out of Stedman Graham.
What do you think? Is the secret a letdown? What should have Oprah announced?
Let us know what you think Oprah should have revealed.
Tomorrow's Oprah spolier: *I* am her father!
I wish Oprah's announcement was that she was going to marry Deepak Chopra. Because Oprah Chopra would be hilarious. Ruff
Am I the only one who thought the Oprah story was going to be Angelina & Brad adopts multimillion dollar tv queen?
