Oprah Winfrey embellished her poor upbringing and made up stories about sexual abuse to boost her ratings, her relatives say in Kitty Kelleys new biography.
Although Winfrey claims she never had any new dresses or dolls, and had to adopt two cockroaches as pets growing up in rural Mississippi, her cousin contends she was actually relatively spoiled as a little girl.
Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches I have no idea, Katherine Carr Esters said. Ive confronted her and asked, why do you tell such lies? Oprah told me thats what people want to hear. The truth is boring.

No surprise here.
Why, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh-out-loud at that!
She actually said that?
And people believed that rubbish?
*** shakes head***
Who watches her show? Hint: Begins with a W and ends with a m.
She never stopped the cockroach collection, did she?
She is a total racist. There are 2 particular radio interviews where she gloats ho she only has white working for her . She’s a pig and always has been .
Whether the ‘allegations’ are true or not, this is a classic example of why you MUST share your extreme, obscene wealth with those that are willing to sell you out to the ‘highest bidder’. s/s/
Guess hearing this ‘stuff’ for what seems like forever, this particular relative decided she would/could start her own road to riches.
Is this purposely timed to the retirement? Now her family can begin cashing in on her ‘fame’ by degrading and selling her out, as the people that fawned at her feet for all these years will snatch up all the dirt and gossip, continuing the cash flow ..
BTW....I am NOT an OW fan
BUT some have accused me of being a tad cynical— in fact I doubt this ‘person’ really exists, just another way OW has come up with to ‘fleece’ her adoring public.....
Sorry....Not true. ;D
yeah, that was rich
Why does any of this matter? Most of what we see on TV is a lie anyway.
Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin’ on the porch with my family, singin’ and dancin’ down in Mississippi.

Amen to that. Propaganda and lies. The best tool the Marxist ever had.
The real p!sser here is that she destroyed the guy who wrote “Million Little Pieces” because it wasn’t true.
LOL! Well put. With props to Oscar Wilde.
A product of liars is they have trouble see a lie themselves.
Kitty Kelleys I quit reading right there.
A hack author writing a book about a charlatan.
Hmm, think I’ll skip this one.
You know the great part of being given two cockroaches as pets? You soon have 4, 8, 16, and then about 4,200 cockroaches. More than enough to give away to other deprived children!
This is the mentality of the DNC.
