Oprah's father writing book about Oprah

by Adam Finley, posted May 22nd 2007 3:20PM

oprahVernon Winfrey, the father of Oprah Winfrey, is writing a book about his daughter, something the TV host and entrepreneur was unaware of until informed by the New York Daily News.

Winfrey moved in with her father in Nashville after becoming pregnant at the age of fourteen. Her baby died soon after it was born. Winfrey credits her father for helping her through the difficult time, and maintains that the two of them still stay in touch. Nevertheless, Winfrey says she was "stunned" to have found out about the book through other people and not her father.

Vernon Winfrey plans to call his book Things Unspoken, which pretty much describes any book. If the things were spoken, then it would be a book on tape, you see.

Meanwhile, infamous biographer Kitty Kelley is also writing a book about Oprah.

Oprah has been fairly open with her not-so-perfect past. What more could Vernon reveal? Your post makes me wonder how Vernon Winfrey's tell-all book could affect the Oprah Winfrey brand. I discuss this more on my blog at:

When folks get old, they get mean. Could this possibly be the situation with Oprah's 74-year-old dad ?

Not be negative, but my question is "Why - do we not know enough about Oprah?"

Pat in Atlanta agrees with me: LEDNORF'S DILEMMA goes right to the heart of celebrity and intellectual blindness.

Read the book, LEDNORF'S DILEMMA, and you will see why celebrities, scientists, and other intellectuals, are blocked from understanding Truth, and why they easily fall for popular new-age philosophies. (Hint: it has to do with not only ego, but with a flawed system of logic.)

when you put a book on tape, doesn't it get sticky?
