Oprah Appreciates Rollback Savings

7/29/2008 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey doesn't buy things at Wal-Mart, she buys Wal-Mart!Oprah Winfrey
We kid. The O was in Hawaii earlier this month where she was spotted shopping with a bodyguard and two kids. We're told she picked up a Nintendo Wii and two games. She was extremely friendly to the staff and even gave the saleswoman a hug before leaving!

The only way an earthquake is going to make TMZ, is if Britney is swallowed up in one of the cracks it creates.

Whatever...Oprah may be rich, but she can NOT TOUCH the Walton Wal-Mart clan when it comes to wealth/money. His 3 surviving children, and daughter-in-law that was married to his late son, and his recently deceased wife, SEPARATELY, can buy and sell Oprah 15 to 20 X's over. And that is not an exaggeration. If Sam Walton had not of died and divided his money up 5 ways--4 kids and a wife, he would have been worth close to 100 BILLION bucks when he died. (Each one of his heirs got about 20 billion when he died, and that was back in the 90's.) That is twice as wealthy as Bill Gates is now. Oprah looks like she is standing in the soup line compared to even one of the Wal-Mart heirs.

Well America...there is your proof that Oprah does not give a crap about America...she shops at Walmart and want s Obama for president. I guarantee you when America goes communist she will not be standing in line for bread like the rest of the population. If she was such a freaking democrat than why didn't she build a school here in America for our children that have special needs or simply needed a freaking school. And yet...you all cannot get enough of her or Osama for that matter. Your freedom is at stake yet you want to give it away. Read people and don' t just drink what is handed to you before it is too late...you seriously don't have a clue of what they are trying to make happen in this country. You fools!

Oprah needs to do her research on wal-mart and the way they treat their employees (especially black women).... I bet she'd never shop there again.

Yes Brian... The Waltons may have a lot more money than Oprah, but at least she gives to charity. The Waltons could care less about there own employees let along those in 3rd world countries.

Brian, are you jealous because your not a billionaire? I'm not even a millionaire and Oprah couldn't buy and sell me, the Walton's can't buy and sell her. She is a human life -- not for sale. Does her being black, and a billionaire bother you?

Herme's since you don't care let Oprah shop where she wants even Wal-Mart. Last I heard it's a free country. Even you are allowed to shop at Saks Fifth Ave. Stores do care about the color of your money!!

CELEBS HAS NO COMMON SENSE OR DO THEY PAY IN FULL CASH    

#16 ..............Everything you said is correct , I have to agree .

Oprah isn't the Queen of USA . There are many others who's
richer than her . She has one billion , where they've 20, 30 ,
40, 50 billion dollars . Her one billions like 100 million dollars
or 1,000 dollars . This lady can help alot of people in her own
city Chicago .

There's alot of people who could use her help if only she will .
This angel network isn't out of her pocket it's people who donates
to it . She always make all her ( FOLLOWERS ) TO BELIEVE
she put money in it . She reminds me of a cult leader .

At her age , why didn't she adopt children who needs a parent .
She could of adopt 3 - 5 children if she wanted , but no she's
the selfish one .

Oh she's taking care of Gail King and Stedman , they're on her
shirttail for all her money . YOu hear rumors Oprah could be
"gay" one wonders if she is . And Stedman is her coverup .

Speaking about racist , she says she isn't but I clearly heard
her talk that way but everyone else ignored it . She says to the
White ladies , OH did you shop here or there " .

With Africa Americans she will say " Hey sista " . Oprah plays
favoritism between white and black, that's not what you do .
You treat everyone the same .

I'm saying this because Oprah isn't being herself . Everything
she says or does , is a FRONT. Just to impress people .

Oprah start being yourself .........not Phoneyyyyyyyyyyy.

Well I just have to post on this - wasn't going to but then I read Sophia who posted at 6:49. Ugh! What is wrong with you? Oprah only gives to charity if she can put her name to it so that the whole wide world knows who gave the pittance. And believe me it's a pittance compared to what the Waltons give. She just has you fooled and you fell for it. I suppose you think she bought all those cars with her own money too. She's like Trump - her name goes on everything she wants it on - and that includes that nasty African school where she is now in the throes of trying to get rid of the bad publicity caused by one of the dorm matrons.

When you give to charity - you should do so without looking for admiration. In other words anonymously - a word that the almighty Oprah thinks only others should be when giving. There are sites with lists of Amercian philanthropists. Find one and see who gives what, how much, and to whom. And quit idolizing big ol' O. She's not the god you think she is.

Upon checking my post I read Things we all have...(posted at 9:04P) and I too agree with you and those you've agreed with as well. I am happy to read that so many know of Oprah's tricks of her trade and that she has never givnen freely any of her money - if she could help it. I've never believed she was a good person without a hidden agenda. People like Oprah ALWAYS have an agenda which is about the only thing she hides and does with extreme anonymity.

If Obama gets in - and it is my hope that he doesn't - it will have been greatly due to contributions from the mighty O. She hides nothing in her agenda when it comes to getting her way - and this time it's Obama.

Today the NY Times ran an article on McCain. Please read it. If I can find the link tonight I'll send it. Right now I need my sleep - I'm a working person - a real one. Also, read Obama's wifey's master's thesis - if it's still available. Whew! She's the real scary one. She outwardly hates all whites - and writes almost eerily about her agenda. Be afraid - very afraid.

We might need a change - but is it really the Obamas? Remember the old adage: Be careful what you wish for.....

You giys are ridiculous.. first of all on the island of Maui, shopping is pretty limited and frankly our Walmarts are quite different than the mainlands.. They are kept up better and not consider "low class" as so many mainlanders feel they are. Secondly.... celebrities aren't hunted down here or folllowed. The only thing that is followed here is the surf. I live in the area where many of the Lost characters live.. they sit at Starbucks most days before work and chat with the rest of us.
The ONLY ones interested if Oprah is buying shampoo is TMZ.
