Gossip roundup: Oprah Winfrey isn’t safe from discrimination
Even Oprah Winfrey isn’t safe from discrimination, as she learned while shopping for a handbag in Zurich recently. Winfrey tells Entertainment Tonight that when she asked a clerk at the chic Trois Pommes boutique to see a $35,000 Tom Ford bag, the clerk refused. “She says to me, ‘No. It’s too expensive,’” Winfrey remembers. “‘That one will cost too much and you will not be able to afford that.’” Winfrey, who earned an estimated $77 million in the last year, decided not to make a scene. “I could have had the big blowup thing and thrown down the [American Express] black card and all that stuff, but why do that?” she says. A spokeswoman for the boutique calls the episode “an absolute misunderstanding,” saying the problem was the clerk did not recognize Winfrey.
Angelina Jolie admits that on the set of “Malificent,” she had the tendency to terrify children while in costume as the “Sleeping Beauty” baddie. “These little kids would visit the set and I would think, ‘Oh, I am a Disney character,’ so I would go over them and say, ‘Hi there!’ They would just scream,” she said while introducing footage from the film at Disney’s D23 Expo over the weekend. “One little kid even said, ‘Mommy, please make the mean witch stop talking to me.” There was one little kid who wasn’t fazed by Jolie’s appearance: her daughter, who also has a part in the film. “Vivienne was the only 4-year-old who didn’t scream when she saw me,” Jolie said.
Vince Vaughn is a dad once again. The “Wedding Crashers” star and his wife, Kyla Weber, welcomed their second child, a boy, last week, according to Us Weekly. The baby boy, named Vernon Lindsay Vaughn, joins 2-year-old big sister Locklyn Kyla Vaughn. Vernon arrived weighing in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces at a hospital outside of Los Angeles.
Chris Brown reportedly suffered a seizure at a Los Angeles recording studio Friday, according to E! News. “Chris Brown suffered a non-epileptic seizure,” he rep says. “He was not hospitalized. His doctor tended to him and attributes the [seizure] to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity.” An ambulance responded to a 911 call directing them to the Record Plant recording studio, but once they arrived Brown reportedly refused to be taken to the hospital.
Kate Moss is doing all right for herself. The 39-year-old model has raked in nearly $20 million in the last year alone, according to the Telegraph. Most of her impressive income is from endorsements — like her 10-year deal with Rimmel — and collaborations with fashion brands including Versace and St. Tropez.
