Oprah Has a Lavish Chicago Apartment For You to RentS

Oprah Winfrey, she who controls the moon above and the tides below, is leasing her 4,607 square-foot Chicago apartment. That is so many feet for an apartment!

Oprah purchased the apartment, located in Chicago's swanky Streeterville neighborhood, in 2006 but not a soul actually inhabited the place. I wonder if a piece of real estate's worth increases if Oprah has slept inside? After listing the home for $6 million to no avail, Ms. Winfrey has decided to lease it for... free! It's a giveaway on her show and we're all moving into Oprah-owned apartments! Just kidding, the rent is $15,000 a month and you will never ever live in an Oprah-owned home.

The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath apartment boasts access to a private elevator, a wood-paneled library, wine room, huge jacuzzi jet tubs, granite counter tops, and wood floors. The works, obviously. Everything you need to leave like a queen in The Winfrey City!
