Oprah Winfrey

You're Paying Too Much

... For My Old Crap

You paid too much! And you paid too much! Everybody paid too much for Oprah Winfrey's old junk at her estate sale today ... and the Big O was shocked.

Oprah and BFF Gayle King were front and center during the auction Saturday in Santa Barbara ... where she was selling stuff off for her Leadership Academy in South Africa.

The first item was a poster (pictured below) from "The Color Purple" that Winfrey proudly displayed in her office for a long time --  the starting bid was $2k ... and Oprah was blown away by the price.

The poster eventually sold for $4k --but you have to see O's reaction as the bids went up, and up, and up ...

It's priceless.

Thanks Oprah. Why not just REALLY give people 'great deals' and 'avoid paying too much' and GIVE THE CRAP AWAY? Seriously.

A celebrity can wipe their butt with toilet paper and auction it off. There will always be a couple idiots that will bid and spend obscene amounts of money on it.

Who gives a crap about this egomaniac who stabbed MJ at his back to get famous. I am still crying over the death of MJ after 4 years, I miss the King of Pop and TMZ you should report more on the news stories of MJ and his family. How is Paris doing?

Did the kids get dressed up this Halloween? Has Paris ever gone Trick or Treating? Did Prince take his girlfriend out for a costume party? Did Blanket get any candies on Halloween night? How can I adopt these kids? Will their bank accounts come with them if I decide to adopt them???

She's right though. People are very stupid to buy anything of hers.

Oprah it's SANTA BARBARA. ...where a starter home sells for $2.5 Million and double-wide trailer sells for $250K. $4 grand for a poster is nothing to the people who are bidding for it. By the way, I love the festival they have downtown every year.

Oh, the woman who handed over two million dollars is telling people they are being ripped off.

Think about that. The woman who gave $2mil to a desiese ridden trollop like Lindsay Lohan is telling other people this drivell. What a BuTTfoon.

Oprahs ego is larger than her behind..
She NEVER would have put it up there , if she thought she was going to be embarrassed , and it is for a good cause , so the wealthy people of that community can well afford that..It is like a 25 cent piece to them

And since she named the academy after herself, and she is a billionaire , why not just cut the check yourself

Why not? It's for a good cause, and the people bidding can well afford to pay for the bragging rights. And, yes, Oprah could just right a huge check, but that is not the point of these auctions. Never has been.
