OPRAH MOVES TO THE PROJECTS ... FOR DOCUMENTARY: TV host will spend a month in Chicago public housing.

*Oprah Winfrey has finally jumped onto the reality TV craze. The talk show maven, one of the world’s richest women with a net worth of over $300 million dollars, will put her riches to the side to live for one month in a Chicago high-rise housing project for a reality series on America's inner-city housing crisis, reports WENN.

A spokesperson for Winfrey’s Harpo Productions company told WENN: "She has interviewed just about every major celebrity and done shows on almost every subject imaginable. But now she intends to tackle really tough, serious issues, putting herself right in the front line."

Oprah will bring along some security guards to keep the gawkers at bay during her stay in the building, but the spokesperson adds: "In every other respect she will have to fend for herself, just like the many people who have to live in these sub-standard conditions."
