If it's that racially insensitive, they probably shouldn't be selling these at all!

Oprah Winfrey's trip to Australia has allegedly brought attention to a "racist" doll being sold down under, and caused the shop owners to withdraw them from display!

The talk show hostess is schedule to attend a cocktail party at The Dafel Dolls and Bears Shop in Melbourne, but when representatives from Harpo Productions arrived for a preliminary interview, they noticed that one of the golliwog style doll, dressed as a "Mamee" washer woman, was politically incorrect, and allegedly asked for it to be removed!

The store's owner claims to have signed a confidentiality agreement that bans him from talking about the situation, but did reveal:

"Oprah's people came…and yes it was discussed."

Wow!

If it's that racially insensitive, they probably shouldn't be selling these at all!

Check out a picture of the doll in question (above)!

What do U think?? Is it racist??

Jenny McCarthy The Next Daytime Diva?!

Filed under: Jenny McCarthyOprah Winfrey

She's getting a hell of a start!

A spokesperson for Harpo Productions confirmed that Oprah Winfrey is looking to give Jenny McCarthy her own talk show!

The development deal is still in the early stages, but the spokeswoman for Harpo said the pair are "exploring possibilities across a number of platforms."

We hear Jenny is slated to have a talk show similarly formatted to Oprah's, but there is no word yet whether the show will air on another network or Oprah's own OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network.)

She certainly is an interesting choice for a host. Hopefully, the deal comes through for her! We think she could do a lot of good with a platform like this!
