    and then

    Oprah's mom countersues over wardrobe bill
    Oprah Winfrey's mother should not have to pay a high-end fashion store the more than $150,000 it says it is owed because the store extended credit despite knowing her troubles managing debt, according to a new court filing.

    Valentina Inc. sued Winfrey's mother, Vernita Lee of Milwaukee, in July, contending that she racked up a bill of $155,547.31 in purchases and interest as of July 1. She was required to make a minimum monthly payment of $2,000 to the store, the suit says.

    Mediation between the two sides failed last week, prompting Lee to file a counterclaim contending she does not owe the money.

    The account is "unconscionable, and therefore, unenforceable because Valentina knowingly and unfairly took advantage of Lee's lack of knowledge, ability, and/or capacity when Valentina created the account," the civil lawsuit says.
