    Oprah's Big Give has apparently included her family.

    The mother of the TV talk show queen has settled a lawsuit with a Milwaukee boutique over a $155,547 debt.  And TMZ.com reports that she has her mother to thank.

    Details of the settlement will remain private, but word is that the high-end fashion store Valentina Inc. will receive a partial payment for what it is owed, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

    The store sued Vernita Lee in July 2008, claiming she owed them over $150,000. Lee countersued three months later, contending she shouldn't have to pay the debt because store officials shouldn’t have extended the credit to her.
