The Snobby Saleswoman who Oprah says wouldn’t show her a $40,000 crocodile bag because she’s black and didn’t look like she could afford it told her side of the story to the Swiss paper SonntagsBlick (translated by The Daily Mail).The Snobby Saleswoman, who didn’t want to give her name, says that the most powerful Demigod on the planet is ruining her life by spreading lies about what really happened. She says that she had no idea who Oprah was when The Mighty O strolled into Trois Pommes in Zurich. The Snobby Saleswoman showed Oprah a few purses and when The Mighty O asked to see the infamous $40,000 bag, she explained it’s just like the one she held in her hand only more expensive. Oh, so bitch did use the “it’s VERY expensive” line. CAUGHT! The Snobby Saleswoman put the entire incident like this:
“I wasn’t sure what I should present to her when she came in on the afternoon of Saturday, July 20, so I showed her some bags from the Jennifer Aniston collection.”
Let me just press pause on Snobby Saleswoman’s story for just one second. THE JENNIFER ANISTON COLLECTION! I’ve never sold purses in my life, but I’m pretty sure that any bitch would be offended and disgusted if I showed them purses from the Jennifer Aniston collection. Show them a Lisa Frank fanny pack or a Jaclyn Smith for KMart tote purse, but don’t EVER show them some Jennifer Aniston crap. Moving on…
“I explained to her the bags came in different sizes and materials, like I always do. She looked at a frame behind me. Far above there was the 35,000 Swiss franc crocodile leather bag. I simply told her that it was like the one I held in my hand, only much more expensive, and that I could show her similar bags. It is absolutely not true that I declined to show her the bag on racist grounds. I even asked her if she wanted to look at the bag. She looked around the store again but didn’t say anything else. Then she went with her companion to the lower floor. My colleague saw them to the door. They were not even in the store for five minutes.”
Snobby Saleswoman claims that she never told The Mighty O, “I don’t want to hurt your feelings, you can’t afford this bag,” and that she treats everybody the same.
“This is not true. This is absurd. I would never say something like that to a customer. Really never. Good manners and politeness are the Alpha and the Omega in this business. I don’t know why she is making these accusations. She is so powerful and I am just a shop girl. I didn’t hurt anyone. I don’t know why someone as great as her must cannibalize me on TV. If it had all taken place as she claimed, why has she not complained the next day at the wedding of Tina Turner with Trudie Goetz, my boss? She was there also at the Turner wedding as a guest. I don’t understand it. I spoke to Oprah Winfrey in English. My English is okay but not excellent, unfortunately.”
CANNIBALIZE HER! So Snobby Saleswoman isn’t only accusing Oprah’s mouth of being an overreacting lie machine, but she’s also accusing Oprah of eating her? Those cries of betrayal filling your ears are from Gayle King.
The Mighty O was asked about this shit at last night’s L.A. premiere of Lee Daniels’ The Butler and she apologized for blowing it up and turning it into a highly important international incident!
“I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland. I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don’t expect that you would be able to be there.”
The lesson to be learned here is if you’re a salesperson and somebody asks to see something, show it to their asses, because that’s your job and you never know if they queef out diamond-encrusted crotch berries like Oprah does. The other lesson to be learned here is if you’re Oprah and you tell Nancy O’Dell that a Snobby Saleswoman was kind of racist to you, don’t be surprised if the media drags that Snobby Saleswoman into the street for everyone to look at.
But hopefully, The Mighty O and Snobby Saleswoman can come together, patch shit up and direct their hate at Jennifer Aniston. Because clearly, it’s all her fault.
