Oprah may be launching her new network from Los Angeles, but it looks like she's eyeing the East Coast for a new permanent home. According to the NY Post, she was house-hunting yesterday along the banks of the Hudson, and amongst the homes she viewed was a $68 million mansion in Alpine, New Jersey (that's about a 30 minute drive into the city)—on the grounds of the old Frick estate.

While looking for some new digs commonly includes a walk up six flights of stairs for many of us, for Oprah, it's more like a three-car caravan and a request that no one be visible when she views her would-be estate. This particular estate encluded 19 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a carriage house, gardens, a library, a ballroom, tennis court, movie theater, wine cellar... whatever, try to find some comfort here.

The very wealthy suburb is also home to Chris Rock, P Diddy, Mary J. Blige, and other other celebrities, although Rock has pointed out:

I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. My house costs millions of dollars. Don't hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there's me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let's break it down, let's break it down: me, I'm a decent comedian. I'm a'ight. [applause] Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He's a fucking dentist! He ain't the best dentist in the world...he ain't going to the dental hall of fame...he don't get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He's just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin' the white man can walk to.
