Oprah Winfrey revealed on her talk show yesterday that she has a half-sister who was given up for adoption by Winfrey’s mother, Vernita Lee.The woman, who was identified only as Patricia, lived in foster homes until she was seven, at which point she was finally adopted. Oprah, her mother and Patricia were reunited on the show. Oprah found out she had a sister just before Thanksgiving and said she decided to discuss it because she thought the news would be “exploited.” Said Oprah, “I wanted you to hear it from me first. Patricia is my half-sister I never knew existed.” Vernita gave Patricia up when Oprah was nine and living with her father Vernon. Patricia, who has two grown children, said she had known Oprah was her half-sister since 2007, but never went to the media because she thought it was important Oprah hear the news from her, not someone else. Said Patricia, “I did not want her hurt.”
