Oprah Winfrey setting up shop in Kuwait

Apparently, Oprah Winfrey, the self made billionairess, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist, best known for her self-titled, multi-award-winning talk show, that has become the highest-rated program of its kind in history and was nationally syndicated from 1986 to 2011, is setting up shop in Kuwait with a quaint beauty salon for women in Jabriya, diversifying her craft after bringing her Oprah Show to a close.

Wait, What?

Yes, it would seem the proprietor of this establishment seeks to leech off of the success of “Miss Oprah” by setting up shop under her trade name. Even going as far as copying her “Dial” Logo.

Oprah Winfrey, who at age 41, had a net worth of $340 million and replaced Bill Cosby as the only African American on the Forbes 400.

Forbes’ international rich list has listed Winfrey as the world’s only black billionaire from 2004 to 2006 and as the first black woman billionaire in world history. According to Forbes, in September 2010 Winfrey was worth over $2.7 billion.

Zero points for creativity. Now this is Marketing turning Evil. There should be a law in Kuwait against copyright infringement on such a blatant scale.

Woe is me.

Next thing you know “Arnold’s Gym” will be opening in Hawally.
