A condo owned by talk show host extraordinaire Oprah Winfrey went on the market this past Tuesday at a slashed price of 2.8 million.  Oprah initially bought the condo for $5.6 million back in 2006.  For sale in 2008 and not sold, it was then for rent at $15,000 a month.  I don’t know if anyone is/was renting it, but the time to unload this property is now since it’s half the price

But hey, Oprah Winfrey never actually lived here.  She changed her mind about moving in after buying.  Now that Oprah has left her talk show she spends most of her time at her $50 million dollar Mega-Mansion in California and spends time in Hawaii.
