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.
Had Ernie Kovacs lived he would have been 92 years old on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011. We can only imagine what sort of funnyman he would have been at that age, but we do have proof of his comic genius by way of a complete DVD box set.
The Ernie Kovacs Collection will included hours of entertainment on six discs from his body of work. The DVDs won’t be available until April, 19th, 2011, but The Shout! Factory, the company releasing the collection, is encouraging us all to give Kovacs a Happy Birthday shout-out via Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.
Fans can celebrate Kovacs’ birthday via their own social media outlets or visit the following sites:

And now, just to get the party started…Happy Birthday, Ernie! We miss your genius!
