If you thought you knew everything about media queen Oprah Winfrey, she says there's something only a handful of people know about her and she'll reveal that skeleton on Monday's (Jan. 24) episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

"I was given some news that literally shook me to my core," Oprah, 56, reveals in a promo for the show.

In the teaser, Oprah says she'll divulge the secret she learned a few months ago when she reunites family members on Monday's show.

Earlier this week, she appeared on the series premiere of "Piers Morgan Tonight" and said that she had suicidal thoughts when she got pregnant at 14 and recalls her father saying he'd rather see his daughter floating down the Cumberland River than to bring shame on the family with an illegitimate child.
