Apparently the giant book deal hasn’t diminished her appetite for free crap. So does bashing on the liberal elite and then showing to their parties for handouts make you a hypocrite or just a grifter?
Sarah Palin and her entourage descended “like locusts” on the Oscar swag suite, scarfing up freebies in a binge that “practically cleaned the place out,” celebrity gossips reported Thursday.
The former Alaska Gov’s Wednesday pigout included jewels from Pascal Mouawad, watches by Skagen and a fancy new hairdo for her daughter Willow. The new coiffure came courtesy of Erick Orellana, Jennifer Aniston’s longtime hairstylist, witnesses said.
The Los Angeles Times reported Palin was supposed to donate all of her gift items back to the Silver Spoon Oscar Suite for auction, as well as $1,700 of her own cash, in support of Red Cross efforts in Haiti and Chile.
But E! Online insisted, “we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag.”
The entertainment news outlet quoted an unnamed vendor who said that as many as 20 people from the Palin camp swarmed the event.
“They were like locusts,” he said.
News of Palin’s grabfest ignited the blogosphere.
“She insisted every person in her huge entourage get something, and there were assistants, nannies, security – insanity!,” an unnamed HollywoodLife.com source said.
