Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Oprah vs. Switzerland!

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 Purpleoprah‘? 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.

Tina Turner: Love’s Got EVERYTHING to Do With It

Proving herself to be THE ultimate cougar of all time, the Queen of Rock, Tina Turner, has finally allowed her man of the last nearly 30 years to put a ring on it. German producer Erwin Bach married Tina Turner in a civil ceremony in Switzerland with a Buddhist celebration planned on Lake Zurich on Sunday.

Ike who?

For those that are not up on their music history, Tina Turner was married to the original Chris Brown of his era, Ike Turner, until 1976, when she left him after severe spousal abuse (are you reading this Rihanna?!) and never looked back. This is the second marriage for Turner and probably her last. Whoever said life doesn’t get better with age obviously hasn’t taken a look at Tina Turner’s lifetina-turner-erwin-bach.

Or her legs.

Congrats to the couple!
