Oh my goodness! Oprah! I am a HUGE Oprah supporter. Iknow a lot of people find her obnoxious. But I religiously watch her show and believe in the positive impact she has on this country. She admitted in her self-named magazine this month that she lost a child at 14. Gayle King said, “She didn’t really know who the father was of this child… and hid the pregnancy for a very long time. It was a secret that she carried for many years because she was very ashamed.” Oprah didn’t know who the father was because it occurred after she was sexually abused which resulted in promiscuity. She had the premature baby at 14 and it died shortly after birth.
So why are we finding out about this now? One of her family members SOLD the story to The National Enquirer. It was very hurtful. But in the end, she found it as a blessing.
“Having the secret out was liberating. Not until then could I begin the repair work on my spirit for the sexual abuse and damage done to me as a young girl.”
