This Is Just STUPID

I heard about the little incident Oprah had in Paris. I thought it was a joke. Turns out they are serious.


Oh, you didn't hear about it? Well - it seems Oprah and some of her friends were shopping in Paris. They arrived at the Hermes Boutique 15 mins after closing.

There was a private event going on and the store would not allow Oprah and her friends entrance.

Seems it hurt Oprah's feelings.

Well - suck it up lady! Private events are just that - PRIVATE. You know what that means. You have them all the time. You don't honestly think a store is going to deny YOU access....with your legendary spending, your celebrity. It was a PRIVATE EVENT. The STORE WAS CLOSED!!

I'm about sick and tired of people thinking they are the exception. Money and celebrity does NOT make you special. You cannot have everything you want. Not in this life, or any other.

And I guess we haven't heard the end of this. Acorrding to the link above Oprah is planning to "talk personally about the incident when her daytime talk show begins shooting in the fall." Well, of course she is. And the sad part is that people will actually feel bad for her. What a crock.

Oh, and you know they had to quote "her good friend" Tom Cruise in there....I'm with Teresa - Who CARES what he thinks?

I just can't believe this is even an issue. But then again - I really shouldn't be surprised.

Personally, I think it's terrible that they treated Oompah this way. And to answer your last question, I care about what TC says... he's seated on the right hand of God, isn't he? He's got to matter.

Okay,okay... I lied! :)

I agree completely with what you said. I read the article you linked to and the first thing I saw was that it was 15 minutes after normal store hours and there was a private event going on. I thought to myself only a real bitch would get bent out of shape about being turned away.... I guess I was right.

Unbelievable... or actually what is sad is that it is believable and our society can drive me crazy with stuff like that.

No, what is sad is that she reports it and people make it into a "race" issue. Get a watch O, oh, wait, Ha! that's what she was there for . . .

There have always been people like this in the world -as long as there has been money. The REALLY sad part is that Oprah seems to be one of them. Everyone keeps nattering on about how wonderful and charitable she is... well actions speak far louder than words - and her actions are showing a completely different person. Too bad.
