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.

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
