Is Oprah downsizing? Â Looks like it to me. Â In this economy we all have to be careful and I am sure she is putting a lot of her fortune into saving OWN.
It has been reported that the media mogul has put her Chicago apartment up for sale at $2.8million, which is half the price she paid for it six year ago.
The televisionÂ star purchased the luxurious co-op, in the city’s upscale Streeterville neighbourhood, for $5.6million in 2006, and first attempted to sell for $6million in 2008, though it failed to attract a buyer.

While many women are still trying to figure out how to act like a lady — or a man — some women just want to know the truth about the men in their lives.Â Dr. Ian Smith recently put out a book which attempts to tackle that very subject. Itâ€™s entitled The Truth About Men â€“ The Secret Side Of The Opposite Sex.
In addition, heâ€™s going on a six city tour based on the book. Our photographer was on the scene when the tour kicked off last night, in Chicago at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The event was hosted by Val Warner (co-host of Windy City Live in Chicago).
Attendees got a chance to watch a documentary created by Hill Harper about relationships. They also asked the panel â€“ which included Dr. Ian Smith, Boris Kodjoe, Hill Harper, and Evan Shy — many of their burning relationship questions.

This past Thursday, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a class racial discrimination lawsuit against Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center, a hospital in Chicago. The EEOC filed the lawsuit because they found that the South Side hospital gave Black female workers different terms and conditions of employment and found that there was also segregation in job assignments due to their race. It’s been noted that at least one woman was demoted for standing up against the discrimination.
A thorough investigation done by the EEOC, showed that several Black female medical technicians at the hospital had to perform mandatory assignments that their male co-workers who were not Black didn’t have to perform. You can’t tell me that doesn’t sound unfair. What makes this story so bad is the fact the president of the hospital is Black. Let’s not mention that the majority of the hospital’s 560 employees are Black. Now to put the icing on the cake, pretty much all of the patients are Black AND the hospital is located in a Black neighborhood. WOW! That’s all I can say. How do you feel about this story?
Just when you think you have seen it all when it comes to derainged mothers and the killings of their offspring. Today a lady from the Windy streets of Chicago was seen blatenly throwing her 18 day old daughter bashfully against the snow and left for dead. By the grace of God, a civilian by the name of Eddie who remains to stay anonymous witness the entire crime and instantly came to the rescue of the precious infant. The baby suffered minor injuries and is being kept in the hospital for further observation. The mother was aressted and is being detained in a local county jail up on serious crimminal charges. When investigators asked why she did such a thing? she relpied, ” I didn’t have any milk for her!” WTF?
So is that the answer to your problems now, ending an innocent life when the tough gets going?
Talk to me people, What is the world coming to!!!
