Exclusive: Oprah’s Mom, Vernita Lee Speaks!


Vernita Lee, Oprah‘s mother goes on the record with editor Zondra Hughes coordinated by Hermene Hartman of N’Digo magapaper. The interview talks about everything from Vernita’s life growing up, why she gave up Oprah as a child and Oprah’s real biological father. The cover story hits Chicago newsstands on Thurs- May 6th, 2010. 

Here are few excerpts from the article:

Zondra: There was a war vet who challenged Oprah to take a paternity test and stated he was the father.
Vernita: “I never seen him before. I really think this is outrageous for that man to say that and I don’t even know him. He wants Oprah to give him some money. That’s why he’s saying he is her father.”

Zondra: As a new mother, why did you move to Milwaukee, and leave Oprah behind in Mississippi. 
Vernita: “Well, I wanted to grow up and be a grown person,” Vernita reveals. “And I left home when I was 20-years-old. I just wanted to go to work and be somebody.”

Zondra: Critics often say you weren’t there for Oprah.
Vernita: “I am a good mom,” Vernita states. “I know I am a good mom. When my children were small, I took care of them.”

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  14. I think what you wrote made a ton of sense. However, think about this, what if you added a little content? I ain’t saying your content isn’t good., but suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
