Oprah Winfrey may have been the queen of daytime TV, but according to her former stepmother, she was treated less than royally by the Emmy winning and Oscar-nominated personality.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, Barbara Winfrey didn’t hold back on how Oprah treated her while she was married to the TV mogul’s father. Among the revelations Barbara made was the fact that Oprah is kicking her out of her home. Winfrey only knew of Oprah’s intentions when the interviewer/actress gave her an ultimatum on her 64th birthday in 2012.
“You say I never talk to you? I want to talk to you now. You have until Monday to get out of MY house,” B. Winfrey said about Oprah’s relocation plans for her, which stemmed from the former newscaster’s father moving to a new residence after filing for divorce from her mother.
B. Winfrey has until May 29 to move out of the home, which she lived in for 14 years.
In addition to her sour relationship with Oprah, Barbara Winfrey stated that the media mogul wants to control everything and everyone around her.
“Her brand is that she’s a nice, caring, generous, giving person. That’s not how it is. She’s controlling – it’s all about control,” Winfrey shared with the Daily Mail. “She has confidentiality agreements with pretty much everybody in her life. She has them sign their life away and she has them in her pocket.”
Oprah’s controlling ways was put on full display when B. Winfrey refused to sign a confidentiality agreement in exchange for keeping her home and car as a part of the divorce settlement.
“Some people can have money and be mentally rich – secure in what they have, I guess. But others, how can I put it … some people you can’t take the ghetto out of,” she admitted. “That’s Oprah, it’s who she is and where she’s from. She had money, everybody was going to know it and see it. But she had to be in control.”
The Daily Mail noted that Oprah’s father, Vernon Winfrey, filed for divorce after he was caught cheating with a prostitute. In Barbara Winfrey’s eyes, the action should have caused Oprah to treat her better than she claims she has. And of course, she blames Oprah for the couple’s split.
“If she was a more decent person she would realize that what her dad did was very wrong instead of plotting against me and pushing me out of the scene,” Winfrey said.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
