From Newsroom New Jersey:
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” may be gaining a new neighbor.
Oprah Winfrey has been spotted looking at homes in the northern New Jersey area.
For her part, Winfrey denied any interest in moving to New Jersey.
This morning, according to the New York Daily News, Winfrey took to Twitter to stop the gossip:
“No truth to me looking for a house in Jersey. No idea who started that rumor. Been in Chicago all week working,” she tweeted.
According to published reports, Winfrey quietly slipped into town Wednesday for a house-hunting expedition along the banks of the Hudson River, sources said.
Among the homes on her list: a $68 million mansion on the sprawling grounds of the old Frick estate in Alpine, N.J., the sources said.
Prominentproperties.com lists the home as a Colonial, with twelve bedrooms, 15 full and three half-baths, 42 rooms, and a basketball court and locker in the basement. Quaint.
Oprah’s three-car entourage pulled into the ritzy enclave before noon Wednesday, a source said.
The billionaire then toured the 30,300-square-foot, English-manor-style mansion, which is part of the “Estates at Alpine.”
