Oprah Meets Secret Sister

Oprah has revealed the identity of her long lost half-sister, Patricia, to the public.

The talk show host had her mother, Vernita Lee, and Patricia on the show Monday to talk of the family discovery.

Lee gave to birth to Patricia and then put her up for adoption when Oprah was nine years old. Oprah was never aware of her mother’s pregnancy as she was living with her father at the time.

In the past, Patricia had tried to find her birth mother through her adoption agency, who later told Patricia that her birth mother did not want to get in touch.

After seeing a televised interview of Lee revealing information that matched Patricia’s adoption papers, Patricia was able to track down Oprah’s niece.

With the DNA test results proving that Patricia was Lee’s daughter, Lee confirmed that Patricia and Oprah were indeed half-sisters.

The two met for the first time during Thanksgiving of last year.
