It seems as though Whoopi Goldberg, everyone's favorite besmocked talk show host, is forsaking us. She's pulling up the stakes at her 745-acre pad in Marlboro and hightailing it outta Vermont. According to a couple of real estate blogs, Goldberg's spread — known as the Robinson-Winchester Farm — is on the market for an easy breezy $2.3 million.
The blurb about the property on the real estate company's website explains that "no expense was spared in the renovations from the beautiful 1790 colonial home." It also notes that this is a "once in a lifetime opportunity" to buy a "unique property owned by high profile celebrity." Um, gross. I'm sure the farm will be even more meaningful to its future owners since it was once owned by the star of vastly underrated spy 1986 comedy "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Especially if she accidentally left behind a pair of her signature wire-rimmed spectacles.
Goldberg's not the only celeb to ditch out of Vermont in recent years. Since fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld shot a Chanel ad campaign at a house he purchased in Grand Isle more than two years ago, we've heard neither hide nor hair of him. I guess he packed up his starched collars and fingerless gloves and bounced back to New York or Milan or Capri, or wherever it is that the haute couture set lives. Well, at least we still have Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly shacking up in Stowe, unless they blew on out of here when I wasn't looking.
