Oprah Winfrey shared a sneak peek of her impressive $50 million Montecito mansion on Instagram on Sunday. In the video, the 69-year-old talk show host showcased her slimmed-down physique while watching her chef prepare purple mocktails in honor of the upcoming Color Purple film.

The kitchen backdrop included large white cabinets with blue and white fine china, as well as straw baskets on shelves, providing a glimpse into the luxurious aesthetic of her home.

The media mogul appeared stylish in a white sweater and matching lounge pants, sporting her signature round eyeglasses in the recent Instagram video showcasing her $50 million Montecito mansion. She has been living in her California residence since 2001, as reported by Daily Mail, and the mansion is now reportedly worth $100 million.

In her Instagram post, she announced the special holiday drink inspired by “The Color Purple” while sharing the recipe with her followers. The non-alcoholic concoction included ingredients like apple juice, ginger, beet juice, lime juice, blue Curaçao, simple syrup, and sparkling water, with a blackberry garnish. Winfrey suggested the option to add vodka, gin, or tequila for those who prefer an alcoholic version.

This revelation comes on the heels of her recent appearance on the red carpet where she showcased her surprising weight loss. She made a stunning appearance at the premiere of “The Color Purple” reboot in Beverly Hills. The talk show icon looked incredible in a busty purple gown that accentuated her tiny waist.

Winfrey played a significant role in the original film adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg, earning her an Oscar nomination in 1986. The reboot, directed by Blitz Bazawule, features a star-studded cast including Danielle Brooks, Halle Bailey, Taraji P. Henson, and Fantasia Barrino.

The highly anticipated film is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day.

The media mogul, who has recently lost over 40 pounds, explained that she has made comprehensive lifestyle changes to achieve her health and fitness goals. She revealed that her transformation involves altering various aspects of her life and expressed a commitment to maintaining this holistic approach.

Asked about how she achieved her weight loss, Winfrey stated that it’s not just one specific factor but a combination of changes. She recently stated that she has not relied on weight loss drugs for her transformation.

In a panel discussion at Oprah Daily’s The Life You Want series in New York City, Winfrey decried how her body image has been topical in many discourses. On the show, she expressed how she had to carry the burden of shame but was resolute not to depend on weight loss drugs.

Winfrey pointed out that she was “just sick of” the idea “as a person who has been shamed for so many years” in regards to her fluctuating weight.

“This is a world that has shamed people for being overweight forever and all of us who have lived it know that people just treat you differently — they just do,” she added.
