Oprah Winfrey bashes Kitty Kelley’s controversial new book written about Oprah calling it a “so-called biography”. Kelly’s book talks about Oprah abused drugs and questions the extent of Winfrey’s longtime claim of being sexually abused as a child among other things.
more Oprah bashing the so-called biography after the jump…
Oprah spoke at The New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards, where she presented an award to her best friend, Gayle King. Winfrey described King as a friend who “sometimes cares about my life more than I do,” and told the audience that last week “was a rough one” for King when Kelley’s “so-called biography came out.”
People magazine reports, “Gayle got herself worked out with all my new daddies coming out,” said Winfrey of Kelley’s claims in the book that Vernon Winfrey is not her biological father.
While the audience responded with loud applause, Winfrey smiled and concluded, “This, too, shall pass.”
Praising King before presenting her with her award, Winfrey thanked her longtime confidante for teaching her “what true love really is.” Winfrey described King as “her best friend who always wants the best for me” adding, “She’s never been jealous or envious of me a single moment of my life except when I was on stage singing with Tina Turner“
That’s the thing when you are this famous, there are always a lot of shocking claims about you. An old man from Mississippi also came forward and claims to be Oprah’s dad.
Kitty Kelley has written unauthorized biographies of celebrities and politicians including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra. My question is how accurate are the sources?
