Oprah and Gayle King in Zurich

A Swiss boutique clerk is outraged that media mogul Oprah Winfrey embellished their encounter after she lodged racism allegations against the high end Switzerland boutique.

The Trois Pommes sales assistant said she felt "powerless" and "in a cyclone" after Oprah went on American TV to say she was a victim of racism. Oprah said the saleswoman refused to show her a $35,000 handbag because it was too expensive for her.

But the saleswoman emphatically denied the incident went down the way Oprah said it did. Trudy Goetz, the shop owner, called the accusations "absurd."

Kardashian's sperm donor, rapper Kanye West, 35, reportedly begged Vogue's 63-year-old Editor-in-chief to give Kim a chance to attend the ultra swanky 2013 Met Gala earlier this week.

But Kim, 32, decided to show up to Wintour's respectable gala wearing a floral sofa slip cover. The disrespect was too much for the fashion maven who once compared Kim to a pair of socks.

Karrueche launch party

Chris Brown's other woman, Karrueche Tran, is set to launch her clothing line 'The Kill' at a party in Atlanta tonight. The only problem is her clothing line doesn't really exist -- except in boxes in a storage facility somewhere in LA.

Aside from the fact that Brown has withdrawn his support of her clothing line -- on orders from Rihanna -- The Kill is already a registered brand. But threats of lawsuits doesn't matter to someone like Karrueche when a club promoter is waving dollars under her nose.

Still basking in the success of her hit reality TV series, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,' producer Mona Scott-Young reportedly began shooting her newest scripted series titled 'Gossip Girls,' on location in New York. The new series reportedly stars radio jocks Angie Martinez, Miss Info, Angela Yee, and blogger Necole Bitchie.

This blogger was in consideration as a cast member as well, but I politely declined. (Read the email they sent me after the break.)

The cast is an enigma. These women don't gossip; they just say whatever their celebrity friends want them to say. Miss Info is a sweetheart and a cutie pie, but who the hail cares about Angie Martinez or Necole Bitchie?

Comments Off on Business Women: The Fashionably Famous

Loyal reader Sonye Rasool, of TheFashionablyfamous.com, writes:

"Hello,

I would like to share a little about The Fashionably Famous and myself. My fashion blog is a few months old and I am dedicated to making it a success. I have a fashion background; I majored in Merchandise Marketing & Product Development. I have worked in buying, design, production, and sales for companies such as BCBG, Lei Denim, and Bloomingdales. The idea for The Fashionably Famous came to mind because there are many people in the fashion industry who never receives the recognition they deserve. The Fashionably Famous focus on giving exposure to people in the fashion industry (Stylist, designers, boutique owners, PR etc.). The people that are featured allow the public to become aware of their talent, product, or service.

Rapper Jay Z is somewhere steaming over the fact that failing media honcho Oprah made the cover of Forbes' $126 Billion cover -- and he didn't.

Winfrey, 58, shares the Forbes "$126 Billion" cover with Jay Z's good pal billionaire investor Warren Buffet, 82, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, 56. Jay Z, who is not quite billionaire status -- shared the Forbes cover of the "400 Richest People in the World" with Buffet in 2010. Jigga, 43, has not been on the cover since.

Celebrity stylist Tameka Foster-Raymond's legal team filed a motion for a new trial today in Fulton County court, according to my confidential source who obtained the court documents.

The court documents contain pretty damaging evidence that may (or may not) prove corruption at the state judicial level. Foster's legal team has uncovered evidence that shows Usher Raymond's attorney John Mayoue did more than just help Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane Lane raise funds for her campaign re-election.

Last week, Foster-Raymond lost primary custody of her two sons, ages 4 and 3, to her ex-husband, Usher Raymond. Foster-Raymond is seeking a new trial on the grounds that Usher's legal team may have had an unfair advantage over hers.

The motion filed by Foster-Raymond today officially stays the judge's order. Which means Tameka retains primary custody of the children until the motion is allowed or dismissed.

Mayor Kasim Reed's special events director has resigned less than a week after her arrest on DUI and reckless driving charges, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Stacii Jae Johnson, 41, was arrested late Thursday by an Atlanta police officer who saw her driving her white Porsche at 82 mph in a 55 mph zone on I-85 near the I-75 split.

Johnson was reportedly uncooperative and refused a field sobriety test, according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

She was responsible for a small staff of about six people in the mayor's office of special events. The office processed permits for outdoor music festivals and locations for movie shoots, according to The AJC.

There's no word on whether the mayor is taking applications for a new special events director.

    The biggest news at Thursday's NBA draft -- besides the 1st and 2nd picks emerging from Kentucky -- was the drama involving current Golden State Warriors' head coach Mark Jackson.

    According to The Smoking Gun Jackson was the target of an extortion plot by a stripper with whom Jackson carried on an extramarital affair.

    The extortion attempt culminated this week with the arrests of the stripper, Alexis Adams, and her alleged co-conspirator, ex-convict Marcus Shaw.

    Adams and Shaw are accused of trying to extort a six-figure payment from Jackson in return for not "disseminating/selling graphic photos of Jackson to the 'vultures of the media.'"
