Oprah’s secret is out of the bag… Oprah has a sister named Patricia, who she just recently reunited with. But why did Oprah reunite with her sister on the Oprah Winfrey Show?

Wouldn’t you think that Oprah would just make an announcement about it without all the show fanfare? What do you think of Oprah reuniting with her half sister on her talk show?

Oprah explains why she decided to publicly announce the news on her show, saying, “there is no way, with how the media works today, that a story like this wouldn’t get out in the press and wouldn’t be exploited. I didn’t want that to happen, because it’s true. If it wasn’t true, I wouldn’t care what the media says. But it is true. And I wanted you to hear it from me first.”

During the reunion show, Oprah talked about how her half-sister, Patricia, came to the realization that she was related to Oprah, how she pieced it together and the reunion between Oprah, Patricia and their mother was recorded on home video.

Oprah did thank Patricia for not going to the media with the news that they were sisters.
