Oprah tells Piers Morgan tonight, in his inaugural interview on CNN, that she contemplated suicide at 14 while pregnant.
Per NY Daily News:
“Getting pregnant was a result of bad choices, not having boundaries, sexual abuse from the time I was 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13,” the talk show queen revealed during an interview on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.” Shortly after the pregnancy, Winfrey’s mother sent the young teen to live with her father in Nashville.
While explaining the strict rules of the household, her father — not knowing his daughter was pregnant — declared, “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.” Fearful, Winfrey thought, “Before the baby was born, I’m going to have to kill myself,” adding she did “stupid things like drinking detergent and all that kind of crazy stuff that you do when you’re trying to get attention, when you’re really just trying to cry for help.”
