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!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
