Oprah Winfrey

... 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.

Clearly you people have never heard of a CHARITY auction!! People often over bid and the auction is online as well, you can view everything. None of it is crap, there are a lot of beautiful pieces. The people buying this stuff are not average, I currently live in santa barbara for school and it is a very wealthy area with a lot of people who can afford to donate. Also, a lot of the pieces are currently at bids well below the estimated value. Theres even a photograph worth $200 that you can get currently bid $11 on. So dont attack oprah for being a chartiable person when im sure most of you dont donate ****.

Holy Jesus people are stupid. She's auctioning her stuff instead of giving it away to raise more money then she would get giving it away people! She should use it as a tax deduction if she wants to, even though she has so much money she doesn't need to! Why are all you commenters so mean? It's so negative for no reason. Stop the hate.

why don't you help people in the United States.. animals shelters in the United States, flood victims in the United States, fire victims in the United States... WHY not help those that put you where you are today? Thankfully I am not one of them... you are just too full of yourself these days...

Oprah trying to be not attached to your things is actually causing attachment on a very disturbing level. Let the things go. Ask people to freely donate to your school. Why are you even asking when you are fully capable of funding your school. Why?
