Oprah Winfrey has a sister

Like many things on Oprah’s show, this sounds like a soap opera plot, but it’s actually the real deal – Oprah Winfrey recently discovered that she has a half-sister she never knew about, and they had a big, tearful reunion on the show this week.

Her sister’s name is Patricia, she’s nine years younger than Oprah, and according to Oprah, she never even knew her mother was pregnant.  It’s difficult enough to imagine what an emotional thing it must be to find your family, no matter who they end up being, but to discover that your sister is Oprah?  That’s just crazy.  It’s like winning the lottery twice in a row!
