The Ex Factor

Wilson shares his thoughts on Ambria's ex and the backstory on his "train sex" comment.

At the time when we were shooting this episode I didnt really know Ambria but I could tell that her ex had really made an impact in her life, especially since they were together for four or five years. I could totally relate to her since I've been in a relationship for six years. When you spend such amount of time with a person, you grow with them and become so attached that it's extremely difficult to let go and start something new. In situations like that you just have to cry and scream really loud to let all your feelings and anger out and eventually you will feel better.

Ambria and Tara's consignment of the Issey Miyake top and skirt was amazing! It's a bummer we couldn't have it in the store, I wanted to try it on. Haha. We often get these consignors that bring amazing pieces to us, and sometimes I just wonder what's the real scoop. Where do they find these goodies? That's why it is great to have Simon around to authenticate some of the items for us.

Ambria was so right about Karen being a haggler! She knows her thing and she never fails to always ask for more money, but hey she is a loyal consignor and on top of that makes us laugh, so I would have probably done what Ambria did to please her.

For the record: I've never had train sex, that was a random question I came up with to make us laugh, and I don't play with sex toys, haha. Do I have toys? Yes! But that's because I got it as a birthday gift in a drag queen bar in the Lower East Side.

What The Water Gave Me

Ambria discusses the team's work with Generosity Water and how proud she is of Tara's progress.

I loved going to Kelly Killoren Bensimon's closet. Aside from Keni Valenti and Eva Lorenzotti's closets, Kelly's was my definite favorite. Handbags, shoes, dresses, suits, an entire Missoni shelf. . .seriously? I aspire to have that closet. On top of the clothing, the bags, the ridiculous apartment and Kelly's down-to-earth friendliness was her charitable demeanor. She knows she has been fortunate, and she makes it a point to give back in her life, which is such an admirable quality. Generosity Water is her pet charity, and I see why. You see the direct results of the funds you send, which is not always the case with charities.

I have always wanted to get involved with charities but I've never been in a position to do so. Working at Second Time Around gives me opportunities to be around clientele who have plenty of clothing and plenty of money. Linking Generosity Water with our clients to build a well in Haiti was finally my opportunity to be a hands-on part of something extremely beneficial. I knew being the one to auction everything would be a challenge -- I've never done that before in my life! I figured because I knew a lot of the women, and we had those amazing items from Peter Som, Kelly Bensimon, Rachel Roy, and Alexa Ray Joel it would be a walk in the park. I was secretly hoping to raise enough money for two or three wells. I was totally wrong. These women did not come ready to give their money away. . It was a real fight to even get a paddle raised. Luckily Wilson came to my rescue with that deep, masculine voice that commanded those women a bit more than mine. Wilson has such positive energy and he definitely added a richer dimension to the party.

Persistence pays off, though, and after a few glasses of champagne the women began bidding. It wasn't the triumphant, over-the-top success I had wanted, but that one well does give water to a thousand people. So I guess I'll just give us four a congratulations for getting that far. Water is something that we take for granted; I can't imagine taking a sip of water and worrying that it's contaminated. This was by far the most rewarding thing I've done in a long time.

I was soooo hoping that Colin's bracelet actually belonged to Coco Chanel. Obviously Coco was one of the most influential women in fashion, so I got really excited. It was a let down to find out it wasn't. Visiting the Elle accessories closet was a nice little band-aid. You didn't even really get to see how much stuff was actually in there! I only wished Karina could have been there to fulfill her fantasy of accessories.

I am proud of Tara for sharing about her alcoholism. Everyone has different past experiences which leads them into certain circumstances they would rather not have to deal with it; I definitely have my own. It hasn't always been easy to watch her go through the motions at work. It's the type of situation that there is nothing you can do but be supportive. She has handled herself with dignity and grace, and I believe her sharing is quite inspirational for others who have similar demons.
