By Brooke Benjamin
Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has revealed a major family secret on today’s show. She informed viewers that she has a half-sister whose existence was kept a secret by her mother, Vernita Lee, until very recently.
Oprah’s sister, Patricia, 47, is a single parent of two who lives in Milwaukee. She had been given up for adoption at birth in Milwaukee, Wis. in 1963. At the time, Oprah was living in Nashville, Tenn, with her father and was unaware that her mother was even pregnant.
