Oprah renting out East Lake Shore Drive co-op for $15K a month

    Talk-show host and media giant Oprah Winfrey has placed an eight-room, 4,607-square-foot co-op unit in Streeterville up for rent for $15,000 a month.

    Winfrey, who ended her long-running Chicago-based talk show earlier this year, spends much of her time in California and Hawaii. She paid $5.6 million for the three-bedroom co-op unit in 2006. But the talk-show queen never actually moved into the unit, choosing instead to remain in her massive duplex condominium spread in a different building a few blocks away.

    Now, Winfrey has placed the co-op unit up for rent for the first time.
