    Live in Oprah's Apartment for $15,000/Month

    Media mogul and famous talk-show host Oprah Winfrey is renting her eight room Streeterville apartment for just $15,000 a month.

    The former Chicago resident has never lived in the 4,607 square foot co-op unit, reports the Chicago Tribune.

    Winfrey paid $5.6 million dollars for the sixth-floor apartment in 2006. The unit includes three bedrooms, his and her bathrooms, a library, solarium and wine room.

    Winfrey ended her Chicago based talk show earlier this year and is spending most of her time in California in her $50 million estate in Montecito, Calif.

    The apartment was briefly listed for sale in 2008 for $6 million.

    According to the Tribune, Winfrey still owns homes in Elmwood Park and Merrillville, Ind.
