Best Answer
  • Winfrey is among the few Forbes 400 members whose wealth derives from their fame rather than the other way around. She is a ubiquitous media presence with her own television show and her own magazine, and each year the publishing industry produces at least one new biography to be snapped up by her adoring fans. This year Winfrey reaped favorable publicity when Jonathan Franzen, author of the acclaimed new novel The Corrections, expressed ambivalence about being honored by her middlebrow book club. The media heaped scorn upon Franzen for dissing Oprah, creating the rare spectacle of a person worth million being seen as an object of sympathy by middle class journalists. Now that's popularity.

i think it's somewhere around 2.5 billion

Update: She is now worth around $2,7 billion.

She must have lost allot of money as my last look at Forbes had her net worth at five billion dollars
