Please, Make It Stop: Part 21

It seems Oprah's got herself a new family member.

According to reports, Oprah's gonna reveal today on her talk show that she's got a half-sibling, a sister named Patricia, with whom she shares a mother. While I suppose that's interesting in a rubber-neck sorta way, it's certainly not a "miracle."

From Black Voices Buzz: "I thought I'd seen it all. But this, my friends, is the miracle of all miracles." During her preview of the show last Thursday, the word "miracle" popped up on screen.

Miracles are pretty rare, Oprah. And when they do occur, they have an almost supernatural feel about them. It's a miracle when people live who should have died. The term "miracle" is sorta reserved for those incredible experiences that happen, but can't really be explained.

The fact you have a long-lost half sister ain't that grandiose, babe. Except in your mind.

One of my dreams in life is that someday someone will love me as much as Oprah loves herself.

I tell ya, Paul, I'm not sure I've ever seen another celebrity who thinks the most basic things that happen in her life are so important she has to share them with others. What an ego!
