BOUGHT: Despite losing millions after being fired as the spokeswoman for Slim-Fast because she made jokes about President Bush at a Democratic fundraiser, Whoopi Goldberg, 48, managed to slap down $950,000 for a 745-acre getaway near Brattleboro, Vt., reports the Wall Street Journal. A Colonial style clapboard house sits on the property, which also includes a barn, wooded trails, mountain views and no shortage of water: there's a pond, a stream and a river. The spread formerly belonged to a college biology professor and her farmer husband.
