Now we all know that Oprah is damn near unrecognizable without her face spackeled, beaten, and pummeled with ten pounds of make-up, but is that really a reason for the Swiss to deny her the right to spend her billions? Well that was the case when she was in Zurich for Tina Turner’s wedding. As she was shopping in the exclusive Trois Pomme boutique, a shopkeeper, who obviously is not familiar with the considerable cash Oprah has, denied her the chance to see an expensive purse which was valued at $40,000. This is how it went down, according to O:
One more time, I tried. I said, ‘But I really do just want to see that one,’ and the shopkeeper said, ‘Oh, I don’t want to hurt your feelings,’ and I said, ‘Okay, thank you so much. You’re probably right, I can’t afford it.’ And I walked out of the store.”
We probably need to know more about this case before we take sides. Was Oprah dressed like one of her slave characters, a la ‘The Color Purple‘? Because if so, we’d deny her too! Now the entire country of Switzerland is apologizing profusely for dissing The Queen of All Media, running to Twitter and begging for forgiveness.
