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. Â 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? Â That’s just crazy. Â It’s like winning the lottery twice in a row!
