Oprah vows against Hermes

 

Television show host Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey, who was denied entry by the Hermes store in Paris, has reportedly vowed to snub the designer handbag store for good.

 

Last week, when Oprah had gone to the store, she was denied entry because the store's staff was said to be having a problem with North Africans, and they had no clue who she was.

 

But, according to Femalefirst.co.uk, sources revealed the staff did recognise the talk show host, but refused entry because she wanted to shop after the store had closed for the evening.

 

'They knew exactly who she was. They specifically said, "We know who you are",' a pal was quoted as saying by the New York Daily News.

 

The friend, however, claimed that Oprah was turned away because she is black. 'If it had been Celine Dion or Britney Spears or Barbra Streisand, there is no way they would not be let in that store.'
