Sarah Palin And “Grabby Entourage” Love Swag
Sarah Palin was, to paraphrase the AP headline, “loading up on free stuff” at an Oscar gift suite.
Sarah Palin showed up at a celebrity gift suite with two daughters, her brother and a small entourage in tow and loaded up with free cosmetic and fashion items being given away in connection with Oscar-week festivities. But she also left a check for charity, organizers say.
E! Online refers to a “grabby entourage” that were “like locusts.”
But like all politicians, Sarah and her crew were hardly gems when the cameras weren’t rolling… “They were like locusts,” says one vendor at the suite, regarding Palin and her large group of hangers-on. “She showed up with like 20 people, and they immediately swarmed the place taking everything!”
We’re told Palin was quite the prima donna and that she insisted the suite be opened two hours early so she could come when no looky-loos would be around.
“They told us last minute to get here superearly for [Palin],” says our rightfully annoyed source. “Then, she wouldn’t let anyone take her picture or do any interviews.”
For those of you who think that’s a standard request—uh, it’s not, especially when you’re getting thousands of dollars worth of free goods.
So what happens to all the swag Palin accumulated?
The press release for the suite states Palin gave over $1,700 dollars to the Red Cross and planned to donate what she received at the suite to charity.
Too fab she gave money, but we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag.Click here for reuse options!
