Read this: Oprah reveals secret half-sister; Ron Reagan writes a book
After promising all weekend that she would reveal a "family secret" on her show, Oprah dished it this a.m.: She recently discovered she has a younger half-sister, whom her mother gave up for adoption when the future queen of all media was 9. Writes our colleague Lisa de Moraes, "Winfrey told her audience she chose to make the announcement herself -- so the media would not exploit it. We'll give you a minute to savor that one."
"Oh, no. Not another aircraft carrier. Not another bridge. Not another highway!"
-- Ron Reagan's typical reaction to the endless lineup of commemorations for his father -- a "fetishistic veneration" of the late president, he says in Manuel Roig-Franzia's profile. And yet, of course, he's now written a book for Ronald Reagan's centennial.
