Oprah Thrown Under The Bus As Cousin Accuses Her Of ‘Lies’

Oprah Screen Capture

Oprah Winfrey was handed a potential PR blow, as a relative of hers is now accusing the celebrity of lying about her past for her own benefit.

According to Express, Oprah’s cousin, Katherine Carr Esters was interviewed for a new book titled ‘Oprah’ by Kitty Kelley and shines light on her side of the media mogul’s past. Her account is strikingly different compared to how Oprah has portrayed it.

Esters said Winfrey was “spoiled” as a child, unlike Oprah’s claims that she was dressed in potato sacks because her family was so poor. As per Express:

In an interview with EW.com, the book’s author, Kelley, adds, “I was having lunch with Ms. Esters, and she was talking about Oprah’s lies. And I said, ‘Well, are they really lies? They’re more colourful stories.’ And Mrs. Esters is saying, ‘No, those are lies. She said she was raised in abject poverty. Oprah said she never had a pretty dress until she was successful. She was beautifully dressed as a child.’

I said, ‘Is that the most important thing?’ And she looked at me and said, ‘No, the most important thing is that we were poor folks down there. But she was raised as an only child, and she had the full and undivided attention of all of these adults who spoiled her to death. And that was the reason she was so precocious and successful.’?

Esters did acknowledge that Oprah’s family was not rich, but stated she has “no idea” where she got the idea of growing up in “filth and roaches.” And when Esters asked her famous cousin why she “tells such lies,” Oprah allegedly said, “That’s what people want to hear. The truth is boring.”

Oprah has received a lot of attention after giving a speech at the Golden Globes, prompting many people to suggest she could be the next President, including NBC who later deleted their tweet. You can read more about that HERE.

This latest claim by Oprah’s cousin could likely serve as a black eye to the credibility of the former talk-show host if she does, in fact, try to run for America’s most powerful political position.

    Her cousin is most likely telling the truth. Oprah is an actress, she can perform very well to captivate people’s attention. So, I can see that she can lie very well without a doubt. A liar will always be a liar.

  5. Don’t trust Oprah, think she is manipulative. I believe she does do a lot to help people with her wealth, but you are always hearing about it. If she could do it anomusouly it would mean more.
