Hey Kids. As much as I LOVE Oprah Winfrey and HATE reporting this story, I must because here at http://www.heavenhollywood.com we’ve promised y’all to give the News. All I can say is with “Family” like Oprah’s, who needs HATERS!!??? Kitty Kelley is writing this unauthorized, BullSh#t, tell-all about Oprah. AND, it seems she’s getting help from Oprah’s cousin to do it! Sell-Out B#tch!
Winfrey was born in Kosciusko, Miss., in 1954, and, the way she likes to tell it, she was so impoverished that she never had any new dresses or dolls and had to adopt two cockroaches as pets, naming them Melinda and Sandy.
But her family says that’s nonsense.
She may not have been well off, but Oprah was relatively “spoiled” as a little girl, her cousin said.
“Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches I have no idea,” said the relative, Katherine Carr Esters. “I’ve confronted her and asked, ‘Why do you tell such lies?’ Oprah told me, ‘That’s what people want to hear. The truth is boring.’ ”
A friend of Esters added that the manipulation of her past is a key to her success.
“Every move is calculated to further her brand and lift her image, which is why she does good works,” Jewette Battles said.
As a teen, Winfrey was a wild child, promiscuous to the point of prostitution, her relatives said.
The future star would steal from her mother’s purse, pawn her jewelry and even turn tricks. She was eventually sent to live in Nashville with Vernon Winfrey, who was her mother’s former lover and who is listed on her birth certificate as her father. He has been described as the domineering disciplinarian who set her straight.
Oh, and I Forgot, now DAD wants to chime in. Vernon Winfrey says he’s been dismayed by how Oprah plays fast and loose with the truth.
“She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth,” he says. “So does God and so does Oprah. Two of us remain ashamed.”
Vernon reserves his harshest words for Winfrey’s best friend, Gayle King, who put the kibosh on a biography he was working on.
Calling her a “dirt hog” and “street heifer,” he blames King for a rift in his relationship with Oprah.
“She’s become too close to that woman Gayle,” he says.
King and others in Oprah’s entourage worked hard to keep a tight grip on employees in order to keep her out of the tabloids.
“I thought I would be working for the warm and fuzzy person I saw on television,” a former employee at Winfrey’s Harpo production company said. “But, God, I was conned. It’s a cult at Harpo. So oppressive it’s frightening.”
Perhaps the biggest secret of the book is left a secret.
Oprah allegedly does not know the true identity of her father.
Esters told Kelley who he is, on the condition she not publish the information until Winfrey’s mother comes clean to her daughter.
“And you’ll know when that happens because Oprah will probably have a show on finding your real father,” Esters said. “As I said, the girl wastes nothing.”
In the words of ‘Atlanta Housewives’ NeNe Leakes; these Mother F#ckers “Ain’t Nothing But A Low Down Dirty Monkey With A Wig On!” When are we gonna stop selling one another out, ALL for the almighty dollar you haven’t received because you haven’t reached YOUR full potential? Hatin’ on Oprah’s bucks. And I DON’T like using the term “Haters”, but …
