By Jose Lambiet, GossipExtra.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Oct. 6, 2015 – PALM BEACH — TV quackery sure pays off: Oprah Winfrey protege Dr. Mehmet Oz has just plunked down $18 million for an oceanfront Palm Beach mansion.

The host of the syndicated The Dr. Oz Show and his wife Lisa Oz purchased the historic Mizner-designed property Louwana, at 473 N. County Road, from Cristina de Heeren Noble Friday, according to Palm Beach County records.

The Ozs bought the crib in the name of a secret trust but then took out a $5 million-mortgage from de Heeren Noble, records show. The loan has to be paid back in three years.

The property boasts 9 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half bathrooms as well as 1.5 acres of beachfront.

The 13,500-square-foot Gatsby era property has been on the market on and off since 2008 and was originally listed for $30 million!

The son of Turkish immigrants, Oz is best known as a talk show host who dispenses non-scientific medical advice.

He has taken some serious flack from real scientists for supporting Reiki, psychic communication with the dead and green coffee extract as a “miracle” and “magic” diet pill.

Something is telling us Oz will fit nicely on that stretch of the beach: His neighbor to the north is Russian oligarch fertilizer king Dmitry Rybolovlev, who paid Donald Trump $100 million for that property.

Oz is the second TV personality who buys an area property over the past two months. In August, we reported exclusively that Rosie O’Donnell spent $5.27 million on a Intracoastal property in West Palm Beach.
