Oprah Auctioning Off Her Collection Of Tasteful Nudes

March 30, 2015 | Posted in Celebrity by tucker-bankshot

What do you do when you've got enough money to make Solomon blush? If you're Oprah, you buy tasteful nudes you can later auction off for charity of course. While most of the items up for auction are fairly disposable, some like Richard Edward Miller's "The Red Scarf" seen above are going to fetch somewhere in the neighborhood of six figures.  

According to TMZ (link below), the auction will benefit Oprah's Leadership Academy Foundation and features a number of innocuous items along with the nudes.

For example, there's the set of four framed nude male mythological figures ... expected to fetch between $800-$1,200. 

There's also a nude painting by Aristide Maillol ($8,000-$12,000), a few Ellie Dolgin nude statues (around $10,000), and a painting of a nude woman by Richard Edward Miller with an estimated worth of $80,000-$120,000.

There's no indication as to why she had so many nudes or why she's chosen to get rid of them, but I suspect they were all acquired by Stedman while he was filming Bad Grandpa...
