Oprah's Sister Patricia




Today on Oprah Winfrey's show she revealed finding out this past Thanksgiving that when she was 9 years old her mother had gotten pregnant, hid the pregnancy and secretly put the baby up for adoption...

Oprah's sister discovered Vernita Winfrey was her birth mother in 2007 and began reaching out to her. Patricia made contact with Vernita several times and each time Vernita rejected Patricia's requests to unite.

Eventually Patricia made contact with one of Oprah's nieces and after realizing Patricia had known the truth since 2007 and hadn't sold her out to the tabloids, Oprah decided she wanted to meet this woman whether she turned out to be her sister or not.

I think Patricia is a good person. Oprah lucked out, she could have been an opportunist.

Puffy faced bitch. I dislike Oprah. She has so much compassion for Gay(le) and John Travolta, and Tom, Cruise and and treats her own sister like she wants to do her harm.

Fuck Okra. For real.

Oh yeah and second.

mmm we just have to see about this.

11:48 what are you talking about?
and that 3rd paragraph is inaccurate. oprah said she never saw the email but instead heard about it from her other sister's daughter who was the first to meet patricia.

I am sooo sick of Oprah Winfrey and her "revelations"! She's exploiting this situation for ratings! Who cares is she has a long lost half sister? The economy is down the shitter, people are losing their jobs and their houses, the U.S. is still fighting wars that it cannot win, and people are crying over Oprah?
This is just more coonery from this "white folks nigga"!

There will be no weather girls/two tons of fun reunion. Izola Rhodes Armstesd died in 2004.

12:34 is not me. That profile is blank. Mine is not. This female up there emailed me and told me that if she can't have me in real life, she's gonna have me in the virtual life. So she made her own BeeGee profile. Some crazy people out there, man. I guess if there's nothing That Bitch can do about it then she'll continue to have me in virtual life until she get tired of a nigga and finds somebody else to tie what's left of her sanity to. I aint goin nowhere..

Everything will be okay. Take your valium and lay back on the couch and tell us all about her. Take your time nice and slow.

I listened to the story they put together for Oprah's show. Patricia does come across sincere. As a local Milwaukee resident, Vernita is no stranger to many and she really is delusional in a sense. I am glad Patricia was persistent in being heard. Being a product of a foster care system is wicked...and speaks volumes of Vernita Lee. That is all. Heeeey Bee Gee! I got my toes done yesterday!!!!! *Wink*

Oprah's mom was foul for that!

Divamama said...

so all this hype 4 a sister... Oprah's really starting to hit on my nerve... I'm sick and tired of her so called revelations...when she does it only for the sick of high ratings...I admire her but I think that she needs to work on some of her personal issues behind close doors... It seems that she puts out only what can bring her high rating while keeping for herself the real "revelations", maybe because she doesn't want to ruin her image...But still I'm happy for them, hope they'll be able to build a real and strong relationship... Good luck to her and her sister

Oprahs mom is a bonafide POS. I could understand her doing this in the beginning. But after Oprah blew up (no pun intended) they could have looked for her. But oh no. There is a nice place in hell for a lady like Oprahs mom. POS

Why do we feel like Oprah owes the black community something? It’s my opinion that had she catered to our fickle a$$es, she would have been cancelled a long time ago.
Oprah went with what made her the most successful black woman in history and that bothers people – and I don’t get it because I don’t blame her. The people who kick her the most are the very people who don’t watch her show and had no interest in supporting her once the buffoonery stopped.
She had “change your life” television and we called it “white folks $hit”, why? Because WE weren’t interested in changing our lives because we’re fine exactly where we are. Nobody wants to hear about losing weight and being healthy because black women have let black men convince them that 50lbs extra is “fine”… so, again… that’s “white folks $hit”.
Rappers are JUST getting to the point where Oprah was 20 years ago, catering to the M-O-N-E-Y… not “street cred” – It’s interesting that if Jay Z did a song with the Spice Girls, he would be considered a sellout because he caters to his AUDIENCE and he ain’t trying to lose the people who put that money in his pocket – but Oprah has a responsibility to do the opposite and lose her money makers while catering to people she will be “over” with 2 years later?
Stop blaming Oprah for looking out for Oprah – black folk are the ones who will hate on you the most, but the main ones who feel like you owe them something. Go Oprah.
Oprah don’t owe me $HIT! (And when my book comes out, if white folk support me and y’all don’t – well, damnit, I’ll be sittin right with their a$$es smilin and shuckin’ and jivin’.

Why are people acting all shocked about Vernita Lee's foulness?

She's BEEN foul, but Oprah got bashed and called a liar and a traitor.

Now that another daughter has come forth with solid evidence that she too was abandoned by Vernita, all of a sudden Oprah's behavior towards her mother has some credence?

Black women, we are our own worst enemies at times and we find every excuse in the book to tear another Black woman down, just because we don't like her, not simply because she is foul.

Had Vernita done dirt to say a Black MALE entertainer, Black folks would have called Vernita out a long time ago. It would not have taken finding out about a tribe of abandoned children to prove that Oprah never lied on her mother.

Vernita is lucky that O still financially supports her ass.

And I fully understand why O stays away from the vampire that is Vernita.

this new sister seems to have all the good personality qualities of Oprah and her deceased sister Patricia and none of the bad.
Maybe it's a blessing she wasn't raised around Vernita

You ain't neva lied, just in time for sweeps and launch of new show. Oprah girl sit down and fade to black.

About It said...

This new sister seems like a dignified, respectful, decent person. It was a blessing she wasn't around Vernita Lee.

Vernita Lee is one skank lowdown lowlife whuuuuuuuuore. A true piece of trash, I'm surprised Sanitation has picked her up and thrown her in the back of a garbage truck.

But Oprah, c'mon, we have a black president. Why the constant flow of trash from your family? Why the Precious movie? Oprah, can you not find a better way to make money than to confirm white folks thoughts about blacks? SMDH

@11:01am I agree. Oprah annoys me at times but other times I have learned some life changing things from her shows. The episodes on what not to do when getting robbed,raped,how to prevent them from even happening HAVE saved my ass. The episodes on male survivors of pedophilia were extremely important and powerful. Oprah isnt perfect but she has helped millions with her show.

Oprah, who came from a sexually abusive, impoverished,neglectful background has made a success of her life and some child somewhere who is going through the same thing will be inspired by her.

Half of Oprah's family sold her out to books or a tabloid, AFTER she supported them finanically.

Oprah was born into a family of vultures and vampires, which gives NO CREDENCE for whatever they have to say in order to sell their story.

She supported the gay brother too, but when you feel that you deserve MORE than the gift already given you and for money you did nothing to earn, you are prone to sell stories and lies.

Do you think Kitty was interested in anything good about O?

Now, Oprah finally met her sister who was treated far worse than she was.She was thrown away & then when she found her way back home Vernita did not even want her! : ( I think Vernita is a lowdown old woman and she kept Patricia a secret scared that Oprah would be fed up with her and cut her off money wise. Selfish! Vernita must have been whorish as hell? She threw the girl away and then did not even seem like she was the least bit warm or welcoming on the damn show. This poor girl never met two dead siblings and she missed what could have been atleast 25 years of celebration with Oprah on shows and trips and everything. They could have been each others ROCK but her mother was too damn lowdown.

I am with you Oprah mother seems like a character jt just so happens that she has a very wealthy daughter who can put her on blast. Her mother seems like a woman who has not changed much and is not a good person to have a relationship with. On top of that she kept on denying her daughter once she tired to come back her mother should be gald that Oprah gave her a chance to even speak on her side of this situation.

I must be sheltered because I don't see things like this happening. I've had two women I hardley know in the last year go into detail about how they had 6+ abortions. One was drunk at the time and let it slip the other one brought it up in general conversation like that stuff is normal. I'm pro-choice but damn wtf! I don't know how you keep having kids and abortions and putting them up for adoption. Who names two kids the same name? I now understand why Oprah has so many issues.

Big Kittty said...

I respect O's gangsta, but I am not a fan. In most cases, placing a child up for adoption is best--would you rather see the child abused or killed? I know sometimes that happens in adoption cases, but they are supposed to be monitored. I know that doesn't always happen, but I much rather someone who knows they cannot, will not or does not want to care for a child place said child up for adoption then keep it and destroy it.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Vernita's mama (Ophra's grnny), was a mess? They say kids don't take after strangers????

I personally know Pat, she is genuine lovable person!! I don't know where to start saying the GOOD THINGS ABOUT HER. I was losing my mother at the same time of being pregnant with my 1st child AND PAT DID NOT MISS A BEAT!! Always there FOR ME!! I am soooo HAPPY FOR HER!! OPRAH, PLEASE EMBRACE LOVE AND HOLD ON TO PATRICIA~~SHE IS A GOD SEND!! SHE TRULY WAS THERE FOR ME!

There is no guarantee that a child will be adopted. ESPECIALLY a Black child.

Sometimes, they spend their lives in foster care until the age of 18.

Patricia spent at the first 7 years of her life bouncing around from one foster home to another.

She was eventually adopted, but from what she said and what she did not say, it did not sound very loving.

There is no substitute for doing the right thing by a child who did not ask to be here.

Vernita Lee would have had her tubes tied stat after spitting out her first born and realizing that she was not mother material, had she been an actual human being as opposed to being a demon.

Cleary, you are a very nice person.

Me, not so much when it comes to this kind of mess.

I would have offered to accompany them to the nearest OB/GYN for that tube tying or hysterectomy procedure.

I would not have taken no for an answer.

Those women know damn well they don't want babies, why front and shit?

Those bitches would regret the day they told me that crazy shit.

6 abortions EACH?

WTF?
