Surprise-a-day Oprah Winfrey introduced her sister today.  That is, the sister she never knew she had.

Seems Winfrey‘s mother never told her about this half sister named Patricia.  That’s because Patricia spent her early life in orphanages and foster homes until she was finally adopted at seven.

Oprah‘s mother only recently revealed the existence Patricia.

On her show, Winfrey led her mother and Patricia to the stage for a frank and emotional discussion where they all reunited.
