Expensive Taste: Oprah
If the words ‘You get a car!’ don’t immediately bring an image of Oprah Winfrey in an orange blazer and screaming to your mind, then we’re about to make that happen. What’s become a popular meme today, started off as a good-hearted gesture from the talk show queen. Back in 2004 Oprah gave her entire audience of 276 people brand new cars.
The $7.6 million dollar cost was nothing to her though, as Oprah has officially topped our list with a net worth of $2.8 billion dollars. Obviously even a classy woman such as Oprah can’t resist spending some of that money, and we know what she spends it on.
Oprah owns a $90 million dollar home in Montecito, A 163 acre property on Maui, and used to own a house in Chicago that she sold for a mere $400,000 (you could’ve snapped up a house owned by Oprah, guys.) Oprah has also acquired her own private jet, worth a casual $42 million dollars.
Also according to Oprah herself during a speech she made at Duke University, “It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.” Yeah, that makes sense to us.
