On her talk show later today, Oprah Winfrey will reveal a family secret that she has quietly hyped as "the miracle of all miracles."
What is the news that has "literally shaken" the television goddess to her "core?"
According to Kitty Kelley, who penned "Oprah: A Biography," Winfrey will present a half-sister who was given up for adoption as a baby.
Citing an “inside family source” to The Chicago Tribune, Kelley claims Winfrey’s mother gave birth to a girl, Bunny, who she then “gave away shortly after she was born because she couldn’t afford to take care of her.” Bunny will appear with the host on today’s show.
Kelley has made an infamous name for herself in Hollywood by writing unauthorized biographies of celebrities, relying on third-person and anonymous quotes to reveal supposedly shocking secrets on stars from Oprah to Frank Sinatra.
UPDATE: Oprah taped today's show earlier this morning and confirmed this story; she introduced Patricia to the world, a woman who was given up for adoption in 1963 and who currently resides in Milwaukee.
