Oprah's big secret is ...

Oprah Winfrey has a half sister who she didn't know existed.

Much hoopla has surrounded the queen of talk who has been owning her final season with big interviews and an adventurous vacation Down Under. But her promise to reveal a personal family secret on air Monday may be the ultimate show tease.

In a promo for the episode, Winfrey said the secret "shook me to my core."

Overnight, there was an overwhelming amount of Web buzz about what the secret could be. "Oprah secret" is one of the most popular Google searches Monday. Most speculation appears to center on guesses about a half sister.

    Well it shook Orca to her soul. Woldn't it be ironic if while she was living high on the hog, her half sister was the opposite? Oh, sweet justice.

    I had the privilege of chatting about family secrets and their effects on individuals and families at my website last week. Why it might be shocking at first when you discover a secret, the key to going forward is cautiously and wisely pursuing relationship. Oprah has done this well.
