Well, we can't say we're surprised!
In an interview with E! News, the Danity Kane alum shared:
Can we all be Oprah when we grow up?
Then we, too, can earn a cool $13.8 million for tweeting about bread, and then spend almost $29 million ($28,850,000 to be exact) at auction for a sprawling 23-acre property in Montecito.
The media mogul has done both in the past 30-odd days alone, so you could say her start to 2016 is better than all of the rest of us combined.
According to Sage Auctions, the Seamair Farm property is basically a little slice of heaven:
"First time on the market in nearly 40 years! Seamair Farm is one of the largest properties in Montecito, CA – over 23 acres on two separate parcels, in the heart of Montecito. This once-in-a-lifetime property is a rare blend of privacy and convenience to all that Montecito has to offer. It is bordered on the north by a 40+ acre world-class estate, and on the east by a 44 acre dedicated preserve. While it is tucked away and private, it is also close to all Montecito shopping, dining, parks, Montecito Union School, and the beach! The main home was designed by renowned California lifestyle architect Cliff May. The estate offers TWO private wells, plus two Montecito water meters and equestrian facilities surrounded by sprawling fruit orchards, and flat, usable land."
Sounds truly divine!
Although the farm also came fully equipped with stables and horses, Miz Winfrey wasn't interested in the horses and they were not included in the sale.
That's okay, we're sure there'll be a lot of other ways in which she can get use out of all that land!
And according to Sage Auctions owner Marty Rogers, the 62-year-old former talk show host thoroughly inspected the area before bidding:
"Obviously, she is a very smart buyer and does have an amazing vision for this property. She had a number of experts inspect different aspects of the property and paid extensive due diligence to the property package we provided."
Well, duh! She's freakin' OPRAH!!!
She knows what she's doing.
Shoot us a housewarming party invite sometime, girl! Ha!

It's a lucky day for a Princess Diana fan who has about $30,000 to spend on a dress!
The custom Gianni Versace gown the late royal wore during a 1991 Patrick Demarchelier photo shoot is going on the auction block!

Decades later, and the world is still infatuated with Marilyn Monroe. Understandably!
The silver screen siren met her untimely death way too young in life, and her fans love to have something to remember her by.
So, when Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills had their Icons & Idols event, they must have known they'd make a ton of ca$$$h.
And they did!
Items of Miz Monroe's were auctioned off on Friday and Saturday, like a pendant necklace, which sold for $34,375, a lacy bra went for $20,000, and a makeup compact nearly doubled that at $46,875!
But some of the most sought after items were love notes that she didn't even write!
One from Joe DiMaggio, after she decided to divorce him, sold for
According to reports, the 2014 VSFS made $2.5 million for various worthy charities including the American Cancer Society, Pelotonia and Gabriel's Angels.
Participating charities auctioned off tickets to the event, with some fetching up to $25K!
In fact, 200 of the attendees were people who'd won their tickets at auction, so clearly there were quite a few deep-pocketed Victoria's Secret fans in the audience on Tuesday.
