Oprah Winfrey is breaking her silence after having a run-in with an employee at a retail shop in Zurich. "Turns out the store clerk did me a favor. Just found out that bag was #38K!!! She was right I was NOT going to buy it," she said in a tweet. But the OWN network creator didn't stop there: She still had nothing but nice things to say about her time in the Switzerland capital.
The owner of a luxury goods shop in Zurich has denied that racism was involved when Oprah Winfrey was discouraged from buying a 35,000 Swiss franc handbag. The U.S. talk show host, recently named the world's most powerful celebrity, was in Switzerland for the wedding of singer Tina Turner when the broadcaster said in two U.S. interviews that a sales assistant had refused to show her the crocodile handbag, saying it was "too expensive" and steering her towards other, cheaper ones.
