World famous talk show host, Oprah Winfrey was told she could not enter the famous Hermes store in Paris because staff were in a public relations meeting. She intended on shopping there for a gift for close friend, Tina Turner.

Hermes management later apologised to Ms Winfrey, but her best friend Gayle King insists Oprah was treated badly. King says, "People were in the store and they were shopping. Oprah was at the door and she was not allowed into the store... It was one of the most humiliating moments of her life."

Winfrey has called the president of Hermes in America, Robert Chavez, to inform him she will no longer be shopping in his stores. Oprah has also cancelled a bag she had on order from the store.
