Don't expect Vernon Winfrey's forthcoming tell-all book (tentatively
titled "Things Unspoken") to make Oprah's book club.
The talk show queen told the Daily News
that she was shocked when the paper called to get a comment from her about the book since it was the first she had heard of it.
"One of my assistants said, 'The Daily News is calling. They say they heard your father is writing a book about you.' I said, 'That's impossible. I can assure them it's not true.'
"But then my sister said, 'I think you should call your father.' I called him and it turned out he is writing a book. The worst part of it was him saying, 'I meant to tell you I've been working on it.' "
"The last person in the world to be doing a book about me is Vernon Winfrey. The last person."
