Episode 10 and 11: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor ponders Chanel's old bracelets and Kelly Killoren Bensimon's pillows.

Hello fellow deal hunters!
We gave you a little BOGO action this week, with two episodes for the price of one and not only did you get two episodes, you got two jam packed eps -- Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Alexa Ray Joel, and more!
Kelly Land Having always been a firm member of Team Kelly (her brand of crazy is just my favorite), I was overjoyed to see the gals stopping by her closet to pick up some things for the Generosity Water auction. I personally would have asked Kelly to cosign her incredible horse and those Hermes pillows but that's just me. I'm nuts for things. I'd sit naked on that horse if I couldn't afford clothes, because I would be sitting astride on a giant horse. Why would I ever need to leave the house
Anyway. . . . I do have to give it up for Kelly's Russian doll handbags. The leather looked especially sumptuous and I love anything with secret compartments. I was waiting for one even smaller bag to come out, and then another, and then a tiny cell phone similar to the one in Will Ferrell's best SNL clip ever ("Pack your bags, we're going to Milan!"). Alas, no.
WOW! Sorry I read justjoans post! Yikes! I don't agree at all! I LOVE the show & my favorite part is the clothes! I salivate! I am a HUGE admirer of THE Coco Chanel & didn't seem inappropriate to me at all. Looking forward to a second season with you folks! Job well done! Great television! Pat on the back, high 5 & standing ovation!
I just don't know how bright these women can be, really. First of all I hardly think it is necessary for Tara to keep referring to "THE Coco Chanel." The woman was the definition of unique, so how many other Cocos does she think we might confuse her with? Secondly, short of exhuming her body and submitting it to some pretty rigorous (sic) cross-examination there was no realistic expectation of determining whether that cuff ever graced THE Coco's arm. That said, I cannot believe that just having Anne Slowey cast her eye over it was all those dames could come up with to investigate the provenance of the piece. It was both distinctive and gorgeous. Surely a better way of authenticating it would have been to take it to the jewelry curator at the Metropolitan Museum. In fact the museum should be number one on their speed dial, not editors from magazines or window dressers emeritus from Barneys, sweet as Simon is. These babes seem like a collection of pretty dim bulbs to me.
