Today was the official season premiere of Oprah where she unveiled her new studio and christened the event with a glass of champagne with Jennifer Aniston. As usual the Oprah audience went wild. The two talked about how well Jennifer was doing and how false tabloid reports have been this summer. Nothing shocking was revealed although Jennifer did say she did not cry during the Vanity Fair article. She looked amazing - tan, toned and relaxed.
Oprah then cleared up the Hermes incident from this summer. She said:
"Shame on anybody for thinking that I was upset for not being able to get in to a closed store and buy a purseâ€”please. I didn't get to be this old to be that stupid. I was not upset about not getting to buy a bagâ€”I was upset because one person at the store was so rudeâ€”not the whole company."
She said it was not about being turned away, it was about a rude employee. Oprah had the CEO of Hermes, Robert Chavez, come and discuss what happened. She ended the segment by saying we should continue to carry Birkin bags and you could tell the CEO of Hermes was super relieved. He did not want Oprah on his bad side. I bet she got some nice bags out of the whole thing.
The show continued with Oprah and her man, Stedman, picking out 3 new adorable pups for their home. You can check out the Puppy Love segments on her site.
Finally, while the audience walked away empty handed this year (no cars), but she did donate $10 Million to Oprah's Angel Network designated to Katrina victims. She set up a registry so you can help rebuild homes. Oprah does good once again!
