Rosie Poetry Time: oprah hermes


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.”
her being oprah -
and who would know better than gayle
i cannot wait to hear
all the details -
one of the most humiliating moments of her life…
a poor overweight
sexually abused troubled
black child
from a broken home
that oprah
sufferred ONE of the most HUMILIATING momemts of HER life
at hermes in paris


after watching tom on o
and then everywhere else
in the free world
i think i may need to up my meds

shout out to brooke
stand tall girl
u saved a lot of women
by telling ur truth

my tommy needs to breathe
“heart humor and humility
will lighten up your heavy load”
said joni mitchell

I don't know what's more amusing, Rosie's latest poem about Oprah and her "Tommy" or that Rosie still has gushing fans who post on her blog two seconds after she publishes her posts.[link]

With all the celebrities going off the deep end these days, I think it's time for BWE to institute a crazy celebrity watch segment. That way we, the fans of BWE, can keep track of which ones are crackpots and which ones won't try to convert us to a kooky religion or read us horrible poetry against our will.

Oprah----Millionaire celebrity.

Why should Oprah be treated any differently than me? She has money. She can cause trouble. Hermes was exclusive long before Oprah, in my opinion THEY have the right to be snooty. No billionaire European woman is going to stop buying Hermes, in fact, they'll probably want to buy Hermes even more..."Look," they'll say.."the French Hermes is so snooty and exclusive, they won't even open up their closed doors for Oprah American Winfrey." The French don't even care who Oprah winfrey is! Its Americans who idolize their entertainers!

Proves that even Oprah Winfrey is the UGLY American...brash, rude, demanding of other cultures to do what we want and when we want it because we have more money and we're American.

I have lost all Respect for Oprah over this. She's proven she's just another demanding rich celebrity who think everything is theirs because they have money. Just like rich whites used to think and act...that they had rights and privileges that the rest of us didn't. You just like us baby, just because you rich don't mean no thing. Start acting like a human being, not a rich celebrity Streisand bitch.

I confirm what Robert W. says!!! :) I'm a french guy and I can confirm you that nobody cares about this "oprah"!! She's not famous at all in France; we're sorry for that! :) Moreover she does not precise that the Hermès shop was closed when she get there!!!!!! RIDICULOUS!

I totally agree with you...I myself gone to hermes 10 minutes before their closing time lol... and they didn't let me in! AND I assure you im not black...im FRENCH.
First of all, I do not believe a second in the idea that Ophra was made drive back because of the colour of her skin....If talking about discrimination that Hermes has is, it is not done on the color of skin, but well… rather on the size of the wallet...Between a Parisian on jeans and tennis shoes, a Saudi Arabian carrying the chador and a Japanese woman fashionista , there is no doubt that the employee will choose in priority the two last quoted, because even if they are not white of skin, their wallet is provided much more than that of small French....and it is all that matters....
Honestly, imagine the scene: you see a woman coming loaded with all her cortege (the articles specify that it’s like she came along with all her staff, baggage and her suite hotel to the store lol)...This woman is well surrounded well dressed (and there are even some bodyguards), and everyone will ignore her???...aside of course that she’s the perfect customer in Hermes!!!! And would rather close the door to her because she’s black?? Sorry, I do not manage to believe one second of it. For me, she was driven back because she scares the saleswoman and that they’re just following the stores rules, who knows that with such a customer, they will not left before three hours.
In my opinion, distinction relates here, not on the colour of the skin, but to the money, what irritated Ophra, is that this tragic thing happened in Hermes france is just unbelievable! the feeling, as MRS Ophra, US cathodic queen and billionaire, that such a thing could arrive to her...and thus, she’s very mad.
What appears natural and normal with the common people (to be made driven back of a store whereas it is closed since 1/4 of hour) transforms everything into racist act and incident diplomatic, when it concern a "star of the jet set international” ....
Oprah Winfrey, international star which can make a delivery of a truck full of Hermès bags in her House by snapping her fingers, alerts the WORLDS Press because one refused her the entry in a closed store, puts in danger the livelihood of a saleswoman who undoubtedly does not have the means of buying the zip fastener of one of these bags, and dares to insinuate that it is victim of racism.
More perverse, it is necessary to seek.
