Oprah and Her Children
When the story of Oprah Winfrey’s upbringing was recently uncovered, some questioned the validity of the “world’s most powerful woman” story. It’s true that Oprah was raised by a single mother who was not much help to her young daughter, but that doesn’t mean that she never had a stable family life. She did and, it seems, she still does have a strong family life. And this may be because she is still in touch with her own childhood.
It was many years ago when Oprah first came to visit Olivia Coach, her first cousin. When Oprah came to visit, she instantly became the focus of her cousins’ attention. The young girls were overjoyed to see their Aunt Oprah because they had heard that she was wealthy and successful. But when they found out that she was a former child star herself, the family was thrilled. And when they found out that she was raised by a single mother, the family was ecstatic.
Now the question must be asked: Was Oprah’s childhood influenced in any way by her relationships with her mother and her cousins? Of course! But her life now is based on a foundation of the wonderful “Wendell” who raised her. Now she spends a great deal of time with her own kids.
And she has not only raised a whole lot of her own children, but she also has done what many women only dream about doing. Now the only thing she has to do is to come up with something really special for her second cousin. If she does, she can forget about being called the “world’s most powerful woman”.
But the question is: Will this make her a better or worse public figure? Will people think that she now has some sort of responsibility to her children as a result of her influence over them? Is it okay for her to be seen with her children because this makes her one of the parents and her children the grandchildren? These are questions that will surely be asked when the story of her life first comes out.
In fact, many people think that what Oprah has been doing is going to be one of the things that will create the rift between her children, which they say will result in more media interest in Olivia Coach. But it is not just this, but it is quite possible that she has created an illusion that will result in people like me, wanting to understand how she has achieved all of this. This is a real shame because Olivia Coach is a beautiful woman who was born with some very serious health issues. She’s fighting for her life against leukemia.
But the wild card is always the media. They always seem to be interested in celebrities and their lives. And Olivia is the perfect example of this, as they have just published a short story of her life with her mother and her children.
It is good to note that the question has not yet been answered, but it will be one that many public figures will have to answer in the future. Oprah, however, has said that she is happy with the way her life is going. So who knows?
