Oprah Winfrey’s House: The Former Queen of Entertainment Settles for a Less Than Royal Sale Price:The 4,600 square foot, 13-room apartment was purchased by Ms. Winfrey in 2006 for just over $5.5 million dollars. Fast forward to 2012, and Oprah Winfrey’s house was recently put back on the market (after a previous failed attempt in 2008) for a mere $2.8 million. The abode on East Lake Shore Drive has multiple foyers, a solarium, a butler’s pantry, a room entirely devoted to wine storage, a breakfast nook, an office, a terrace, high ceilings, stunning views of the water, and three bedrooms. It is one of three properties Ms. Winfrey owns currently, and the least used of the three, hence her decision to offload it. Though she is not as powerful as she once was, it would still be kind of cool to boast that you now own Oprah Winfrey’s house. here was a time when you were definitely the queen of, well, just about everything. You could make a movie a hit, a book a bestseller, and a minor celebrity into a major one, just by turning your attention their way. Your retirement party brought out every entertainment giant of the last two decades. You made headlines when you launched your own magazine, and then your own network, and for all intents and purposes you looked to be made of gold. However, the magazine has only done so-so, and the network is struggling. While your talk show is missed, two or three other “gabfests” have happily sucked up your large afternoon audience, and are now doing better than ever. While you are still a prolific and successful producer, Oprah, sadly, your star has seemed to dim somewhat. Which may be the reason you are having so much trouble selling your apartment. If anyone out there is looking for a place, Oprah Winfrey’s house is now on sale for half of its original price.

It was here at the front gate of Kim Kardashian's 5 bedroom and 4.5 bathroom mansion where some creepy "fan" showed up with his luggage and attempted to persuade the Kim Kardashian's private security detail he was meant to move in to the mansion during the taping of whatever reality program Kim Kardashian was scheduled to begin taping. It was this that alerted Kim Kardashian to seek out a new mansion that offers a higher level of security and a greater degree of privacy. Last week all us celebrity property gossips went wild about a nearly 7,000 square foot Craftsman-style mansion in the star-studded and guard-gated Mulholland Estates community near Sherman Oaks, CA that was widely and incorrectly reported to have been leased by the recently married and quickly divorced Kim Kardashian for somewhere in the neighborhood of $40,000 a month.
