Using the "D" card!
Get a grip, Oprah...

On June 14th, Opera and friends stopped by Hermes in Paris to purchase a gift for Tina Turner with whom she was having dinner that evening. Opera and company arrived at Hermes at around 6:45pm, about 15 minutes after the store had closed. There were people in the store because a private PR event was being set up inside.
The following is a blog by Rosie O'Donnell (You Go Girl) at "oprah was turned away at hermes in paris. gayle said it was really really bad she used really twice she saw it - she was there “Oprah describes it as one of the most humiliating moments of her life.” and who would know better than gayle i cannot wait to hear all the details -one of the most humiliating moments of her life…oprah a poor overweight sexually abused troubled black female child from a broken home -that oprah sufferred ONE of the most HUMILIATING momemts of HER life at hermes in paris hmmmmm

The following, my feelings exactly!

..... after-hours shopping is a favor, a perk. Not a right. There's nothing wrong with a store saying not tonight, madame, as long as the reason doesn't have anything to do with skin color. It's okay to say no to a celebrity, even when her name is Oprah. Washington Post, Robin Givhan
