Oprah revealed her major secret to the world yesterday, she has a sister who she recently learned existed. Oprah’s mother had baby nine years after Oprah was born and was ashamed. She left her baby at a hospital for someone to care for because she felt she was unable to. Oprah’s sister, named Patricia, tried to reach out to Oprah’s staff as well as Oprah’s mother unsuccessfully several years ago. Her mother failed to tell Oprah about her other sister due to the shame.
