TV queen Oprah Winfrey has dismissed reports she plans to purchase a $68 million mansion in the most expensive region of America. Earlier this week, the TV titan was rumored to have taken a tour of a sprawling English manor-style estate in Alpine, New Jersey, which Forbes magazine editors named the priciest area to live in 2009.
Winfrey was said to have demanded the house be vacated so she could peruse the five-storey property in peace, but she insists the reports are bogus.
In a post on her official Twitter page, she writes, "No truth to me looking for a house in Jersey. No idea who started that rumor. Been in Chicago all week working."
