[Blind Gossip] This award-winning actress was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, and has probably never set foot in a discount department store. She certainly won’t be camping out on line for a flat-screen TV at 4:00 am this Friday. However, she does display a rather remarkable insensitivity to those can’t afford luxury items.
The shallow actress was asked about shopping after Thanksgiving. A friend jokingly asked her if she was planning to battle the crowds on Black Friday.
“Oh, my god! Could you even imagine being in a store on Friday with the great unwashed, pushing and shoving to save a couple of dollars on some cheap plastic handbag or a cheap plastic watch? I would rather die than ever walk into one of those places.”
Her friend reminded her that not everyone could afford to spend thousands of dollars on a luxury handbag or a luxury watch.
Her response came in the form of a life lesson and a math problem. “Well, I learned that the only way to be a success is to work hard. I don’t spend my days sitting in front of a TV. And I really don’t understand why anyone would buy cheap things. If you can afford to go to Walmart or Target and buy twenty cheap handbags for $50 each, then you can certainly afford to spend $1,000 on one decent handbag! Not a great handbag, mind you, but a decent one. It’s simple math! And that thousand-dollar handbag would last so much longer than the twenty cheap ones combined! If you’re not smart enough to realize that, then maybe you deserve to be poor!”
So, there you have it folks. According to this actress, you are a member of the great unwashed because you don’t work hard enough and you are not smart enough to spend $1000 on a “decent” handbag. Hope you’ve learned your lesson.
