Oprah Winfrey

Let's face it – we absolutely love following the lifestyles of the rich and the famous. Why? The answer is multi-faceted, but in general we live vicariously through them while also having something to talk about with friends and family members.

Along with keeping up with information such as upcoming movies that Brad Pitt will be starring in and new album releases by Ke$ha, we also like to know where celebrities live, when they sell their mansions, and when they face financial hardships.

What, exactly, is going on with some of our favorite female stars?
