Oprah Tells Piers Morgan About The Child She Lost And Her Suicidal Thoughts + YBF's "BET Honors 2011" Red Carpet Footage

​ ​ ​ ​

Last night Oprah Winfrey sat down with CNN's newest talk show host Piers Morgan to kick off his new show and chat about her OWN Network, her career in television and also discuss some personal tragedies like the loss of her child. 

Get the deets inside plus find out how some of our YBF celebs give back to the community when TheYBF.com hits the red carpet at "BET Honors 2011."

 

 

Oprah Winfrey sat down for a deeply personal interview with CNN's Piers Morgan and one of the most shocking topics on the table was the child she tried to abort and eventually lost when she was 14.

“Getting pregnant was a result of bad choices, not having boundaries, sexual abuse from the time I was 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13,” said Oprah. 

Oprah then revealed to Piers the shame she felt after learning of the pregnancy and the suicidal thoughts that came.  She even tried to drink laundry detergent in attempt to abort the baby herself.

And when a pregnant Oprah went to live with her father, things only got worse when he told her, “I would rather see a daughter of mine floating down the Cumberland River than to bring shame on this family and the indecency of an illegitimate child.”

She then “hid the pregnancy until her swollen ankles and belly gave her away.” A few weeks later, the baby died in the hospital.

Another shocking revelation was that Oprah said she “had no connection..." to the baby and viewed the death as a blessing in disguise. “When the baby died, I knew that it was my second chance.”

Interesting take on it.

Another bitter black woman

Another bitter black woman that obviously does not know what she is talking about!! Does Iyanla Vanzant ring a bell!! Well, Iyanla IS a black woman that was one of Oprah's experts YEARS ago. Oprah wanted to give Iyanla a show, but she thought Oprah was taking too long so she signed with Barbabra Walters to do a show, which failed. Iyanla Vanzant IS A BLACK WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just because YOU don't like Dr. Phil does not mean anything!! The guy is LOADED.

Yes Iyanla is black and so is

Yes Iyanla is black and so is Gayle, but what about everyone else she uplifts that is not black (well with the exception of the president) Just peep her shows and some of the things she speaks about, her audience. I feel that she caters towards the whites rather than the blacks. But hey that's her own personal choice. It's her money she has worked hard for it so she can do what she feels..... But i understand where the above comment was coming fromm.

Oprah's pregnancy and

Oprah's pregnancy and childhood reflect a lot of what happened with Maya Angelou, who was raped by her mother's boyfriend at a very young age and asked a man "Would you like to have intercourse with me?" which led to her first pregnancy. It seems like Oprah is saying she was promiscuous because of her abuse. Sad stories....

If I were Gabby, I would have

If I were Gabby, I would have walked right past the YBF esp with all the shade you constantly throw her on this site but I guess she doesn't care. She's living the fab life. She's beautiful. While bloggers make money by talking about her. Never too much publicity. I dont know why this is news. Oprah has discussed this before. And after the rape and tumultuous relationship with her parents she experienced as a child, only she can testify for why she saw the lost her child as a blessing.
