Oprah Winfrey is one of the most powerful women in entertainment. The star is known for her long running career and she is definitely one of the most popular show hosts ever. Oprah owns her own network and she also conducts a series of businesses. The famous star has without a doubt a lot to share. So, Oprah will be releasing a memoir in 2017.
The book is set to be out in January 2017 and promises to reveal a series of things that have never been exposed about Oprah. Oprah has just started to work on the book, so it is yet to find out where the story will evolve. However, the star claimed that the book will include a series of her experiences, as all of them were there to help her learn something.
“All of my experiences, even the painful ones, have been there to teach me something about life. I’m still learning and I hope my story inspires other people to live the highest, fullest expression of themselves,” Oprah explained. What these experiences will include is yet to find out.
Oprah has recently made quite an emotional appearance in Australia. During an interview, the star talked about an absolutely traumatic experience she went through. She revealed that she experienced sexual abuse as a child and she actually lost a son at the age of only 14. Oprah made these revelations during a conference appearance that took place in Melbourne, Australia.
“I did an interview with a reporter before I came to Australia and she said you should name the baby son who died,” Oprah said. “So I have named him, I had a little boy named Canaan,” the star went on to add. “I named him Canaan because Canaan means new land, new life.”
As a child, Oprah has been through some traumatic experiences. “I was raped at nine years old by a cousin, then again by another family member, and another family member,” the star said. She went on to add that she was very ashamed with her baby bump, so she just tried to hide it.
