LOS ANGELES: Sarah Palin may have not been nominated for an Academy Award, but that did not stop the politician-turned-author from invading the Oscar’s gifting suite and walking away with a ton of free goodies.
The nominated artistes are given away designer goodies worth millions of dollars every year, at gifting suites where they can take their pick from a variety of products from clothes to high end electronics.
Palin showed up at the Silver Spoon’s Oscar Suite in West Hollywood with a 20-strong entourage which included daughter Willow and grandson Tripp, reported E! Online.
“They were like locusts. She showed up with like 20 people, and they immediately swarmed the place taking everything!” said one of the hostesses at the event.
Palin was quite the prima donna and she insisted the suite be opened two hours early so she could come when no cameras would be around.
“They told us last minute to get here superearly for Palin, so that no one takes her pictures or ask for any interviews,” added the source.
Some of the products Palin picked up included Bloom facial products, which she told the vendor she needed for her under-eye area. Palin also grabbed some sweatshirts for daughter Bristol.
