Haggle Me Not

In 2001, antique shop owners in Santa Barbara were thrilled when they heard Oprah Winfrey was setting up housekeeping on her new 50 million dollar property in the neighborhood. But some were staggered to find out she can be as thrifty as she is rich. Oprah saw a an inlaid English table from the early 1900’s in an elegant store and noted the $8900 pricetag. “What’s your BEST price?” she asked. The shopkeeper told her “I’ll go down to $6900.” “Oh no,” Oprah clucked. “What price do you have in mind?” asked the dealer. Oprah shrugged “$2900?” The offended store owner suggested she shop elsewhere. And she did.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
