Barbara Winfrey is speaking out against Oprah Winfrey – and what she has to say isn’t good at all. According to the Daily Mail, Barbara was married to Vernon Winfrey, Oprah’s father.

Among the things Barbara revealed…

  • Oprah is forcing her out of the home that she shared with Vernon for 14 years. She was served with an eviction notice that’ll require her to be out of the $1-point-4 million dollar house just south of Nashville by Friday, May 29th. Barbara said, “I have lost everything. It’s not just a house, this is my home. All my memories are here.” 
  • Even though Oprah is known around the world as an inspirational figure, Barbara says the Queen of Talk is manipulative and high-handed, treats family like staff and uses her wealth to control others. And Oprah and Stedman Graham aren’t bound by romance, but by shared secrets, convenience, and money.
  • Barbara describes Oprah’s relationship with Gayle King as bizarre and unhealthy – which is why neither woman is married. She said that it would be nothing for Oprah would call Gayle and say, “Fire so and so and so and so and so and so,” without saying a word to the person in question. To make bad matters worse, Oprah wouldn’t give the person a chance to defend himself or herself and would take all the “gifts” back.
  • Even though it’s been rumored that Vernon isn’t Oprah’s biological dad, she didn’t want to take a DNA test. Barbara says there’s really no test needed because they have the same big feet, the same bags under their eyes, and the same nose.” 

At the end of the day – Oprah is a woman unhappy in her skin and unforgiving if you cross her. Barbara said, “You find out quickly where your place is with Oprah and you get in that place and you stay in that place.” She added, “My crime, I think, was to talk to her like a normal person and she didn’t like that one bit.” So far, Oprah hasn’t commented on the report. Stay tuned…

One More Thing…

  • Maybe Barbara is a little bitter because her marriage is breaking up over Vernon’s infidelity. Apparently he spent a week with a prostitute with a woman known as One Tooth. The hooker had taped their encounter to blackmail him with it, but the truth came out three years ago.
