Oprah's former stepmother gets 60 days to vacate

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — Oprah Winfrey's former stepmother has been given extra time to vacate the $1.4 million home she once shared with the father of the iconic talk-show host.

Winfrey spokeswoman Nicole Nichols told The Associated Press in an email that Oprah's company has granted Barbara Winfrey 60 days to leave following her request for more time. Barbara Winfrey and Vernon Winfrey divorced last year. Court records show that Overground Railroad LLC filed paperwork earlier this month asking that Barbara Winfrey be evicted from the Franklin, Tenn., home.

Barbara Winfrey represented herself in court. A phone number listed in public records under that name was not accepting messages.
