ELMWOOD PARK — The Queen of Talk, Oprah Winfrey, is cutting what may be her last remaining personal tie to Chicago: Winfrey has put her last Chicago-area home up on the market.

Oprah bought the home in suburban Elmwood Park in 2001, but she never actually lived there. Winfrey has been steadily selling off her Chicago properties since she ended her long-running talk show and moved to California.

Speaking about what her future may hold in an interview Friday, Winfrey laughed when she was asked if she would consider running for office.

“That will never happen to me,” she said.
