Although Oprah is now a household name for people around the world, she wasn’t always the star she is today. In fact, this host lived through many traumatic events in her childhood. Oprah was born into poverty as her single mother struggled to bring her up alone. In fact, times were so tough that Oprah often dressed in potato sacks as there were no other clothes to wear.
