WHY OPRAH BOUGHT A BARBERSHOP

#oprah #janetcharlton

In spite of having a strained relationship through the years, Oprah Winfrey came to the rescue of her father Vernon when he made a bad real estate decision. Vernon had operated his barbershop in Nashville for 50 years when his latest wife Barbara pushed him to buy a new building, renovate it and move the shop. A year later Vernon found himself unable to keep up with the mortgage payments and the building went into foreclosure. When the bank auctioned it off on Friday, Oprah paid $475.000 for the building and her father will continue to run his business. Instead of being grateful, Vernon’s wife Barbara lashed out at Oprah because that cut HER out of part ownership. Vernon did the right thing and filed for divorce shortly after.

  1. How strange it must be to be so close to all that wealth and fame. I imagine it brings out the devil in people.

    This actually reminds me of the Madonna/homeless brother story.

  2. EVIL not only sold her soul, she sold out the Country.

  3. Interesting way to handle the situation. Instead of bailing them out, she let the building go to foreclosure guaranteeing that she could buy it thus pushing Barbara right out of the picture.

    Obviously, Oprah smelled a rat and its name is Barbara.

  4. Vernon is around 80 years old – why would he need a new building????

  5. If you’re worth over a billion bux, why don’t you just support your parents for godsake?

  6. America’s famous house frau hypnotist.
    “You will vote for my president, you will vote for my president.”
    “You will gush forth and weep for Gayle and my camping trip.”
    Sad.

  7. “Unemployment for blacks surged to 14.4 percent – the highest level of 2012 and up from 13.6 percent in May”

    As Herman Cain said, the BLACKS have to get off their asses and stop complaining and go to work. They should be more like Asians and start their own businesses but then they would have to work. Too much time out trying to be cool.

    Asians are passing them like rockets.

    Hope & Change!

  8. hey Strom – are the “asians” rocket passing racists droolers too ?

  9. Just like you can count on BLACK Seal to ignore women of color and head for white women, you can count on “Johnny1960” to enable all things BLACK.

    Unemployment FACTS:

    Race/Ethnicity June 2012

    White 7.4%
    Black 14.4%
    Hispanic 11.0%
    Asian 6.3%

  10. Well Strom, that’s one more reason for Vernon to keep his barbershop: the employment of others.

  11. As Herman Cain (not Johnny or Obama) said, the BLACKS have to get off their asses and stop complaining and go to work. They should be more like Asians and start their own businesses but then they would have to work. Too much time out trying to be cool.

    Asians are passing them like rockets.

  12. so there will be more bald people in the Nashville-area from this day.

  15. Ophra’s a great business woman – she waited until her Dad lost the business so she could scoop it up for under $500.
    Ophra does not sound like a good daughter though because she WAITED until her Dad lost the business.
    Never liked her, never will. Just another Corporate Pyramid scheme player…like Amway sales people…
