Oprah Winfrey Big Secret

Oprah Winfrey says she’ll reveal a deep family secret on her show Monday. Whatever it is, notes CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller, Winfrey promises it will be a real bombshell.

All she’s said so far is she “was given some news that literally shook me to my core. … I’ve been keeping a family secret for months, and you’re gonna hear it straight from me.”

After years of reuniting loved ones, Winfrey is promising viewers the most anticipated one in her show’s 25 year history and it’s her own, saying, “This time I’m the one being reunited.”

Through the years, Winfrey has shared some of her most intimate secrets, ranging from an abusive childhood to drug abuse. Now, with her show in its final season, the Queen of Talk has done a series of high-profile interviews, addressing, among other things, rumors of a lesbian relationship with best friend Gayle King. “She’s the friend that everyone deserves,” Winfrey told Barbara Walters. ” … I’m not even kind of lesbian.”

Winfrey even revealed she considered suicide after learning of an unwanted teen pregnancy, telling Piers Morgan, “I was 14 years old and … I thought, before the baby was born, I’m gonna have to kill myself.”

With a life lived so openly in the public eye, Winfrey’s always had a skill for capturing attention.
