Well, it looks like Marie aka Snobby Saleswoman #2 from Pretty Woman learned a whole lot of Italian with Rosetta Stone and moved to Zurich to spread her signature bitchy snobbery there.
The most powerful woman IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, Oprah, says that while she was in Zurich for Tina Turner’s wedding, she decided to do just a little casual shopping and she strolled into a fancy store called Trois Pomme. The salesgirl at Trois Pomme obviously didn’t know that Oprah’s a woman whose pubes are worth more than that entire store, because she treated her like some common, regular peasant. Oprah brought up the story while talking to Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell about racism.
When Nancy asked The Mighty O if anybody’s ever been racist to her, she said not blatantly, but that when she went to Trois Pomme and asked to see a $40,000 bag, the Snobby Saleswoman pulled some “it’s VERY expensive” shit on her and tried to sell her some cheaper bags instead. Oprah says that she wasn’t slathered in diamonds, but she wasn’t dressed like a regular Kristen Stewart either. Oprah kept trying to get the Snobby Saleswoman to show her that bag, but the Snobby Saleswoman kept turning her down and that bitch finally said, “I can’t, I don’t want to hurt your feelings.” Knowing that she could probably buy that store and buy Snobby Saleswoman’s house and burn them all down to the ground while cackling into the night air, Oprah smiled and said, “You’re right, I probably can’t afford it,” before busting out of there.
Gayle King told Oprah that she should’ve went back and told that ho, “Big mistake. HUGE,” but she didn’t want to do that.
The store’s owner, Trudie Gotz, told the BBC that it was all just a misunderstanding. Snobby Saleswoman isn’t a racist and wasn’t treating Oprah like that because she’s black. Trudie said that Oprah just wanted to see the bag and not touch it. That makes zero sense, but it’s the story Trudie stuck to. The BBC asked Trudie if she was breaking the Eleventh Commandment by calling Oprah a liar, but she didn’t answer. Trudie says that Snobby Saleswoman mostly speaks Italian and her English isn’t so good. Trudie isn’t going to fire her.
The Swiss tourism office said that Snobby Saleswoman acted terribly wrong and that “we are very sorry for what happened to [Oprah].” The Swiss tourism office continued to apologize to Oprah by skinning that salesgirl alive and turning her into a bag for The Mighty O!
And this post is totally incomplete without this:
Marie is a total ice cold bitch and she’s the best part of Pretty Woman. I am so mad at Hollywood for not making a sequel to Pretty Women where Vivian marries Edward, buys that shop and becomes Marie’s new boss.
