OPRAH LIED re her POVERTY & SEX ABUSE per New Biography

Saw this headline & link at Twitter this morning.  Wow!  We knew Oprah was New-Age-whacked, but who knew she was a big fat liar, too?

I already had long grown a distaste for Oprah, but this really seals it, especially because she says she lied merely for “ratings sake,” meaning she sold her scruples for the almighty dollar. 

She may have lied about the poverty, but if it’s true she lied about the sex abuse, that is REALLY bad, because she did SO MANY shows about it FOR YEARS (late 1980’s thru the early to mid 1990’s) & certainly seemed sincere in wanting to help expose & educate re the frequency & effects of child sex abuse.  So if she was FAKING all that, you really really have to wonder what makes that lady tick! 

Not only that, but it also makes you wonder whether she was really the “self-made success” she has always claimed, or is Oprah just another “propaganda front” for the “man behind the curtain”?  It wouldn’t surprise me now.

Oprah lied about poverty, sexual abuse

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey has repeatedly lied about her upbringing and made up stories about sexual abuse to boost her reputation, a newbook

 claims. 

The talk-show queen has always maintained that she grew up so poor in rural Mississippi that she never had any new dresses or dolls and could only keep cockroaches as pets. 

However, a new biography has claimed that Winfrey was spoiled as a child.  In the biography Oprah, author Kitty Kelley has claimed that Winfrey’s tales have alienated her from much of her family. 

“Where Oprah got that nonsense about growing up in filth and roaches I have no idea,” the New York Post quoted Winfrey’s cousin Katherine Carr Ester as saying in the book. “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”,” Katherine added. Vernon Winfrey, the talk show host’s adoptive father, reportedly told the author he felt “ashamed” about her lies. 

“She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth; so does God and so does Oprah,” he said.

I always did wonder why her stepfather seemed so uneasy around Oprah the few times they were ever together on the show.

Not much else to that story so I guess for more details you’d have to read the book.
