I just want to say that I have the utmost respect for Jenni and the way that she handled herself during what can only be described as a living nightmare. In the weeks that followed, she always comported herself with the utmost grace and dignity. Under undeniably arduous circumstances, she continued to show up for work with a smile when her heart must have been breaking. Her courage, bravery, and strength to continue on with her life under the microscope of the cameras still amazes me. Jenni Pulos is one strong, sassy sistah. She is a true class act.
Chris' departure affected everyone in different ways. At the time he left, I had only been working for Jeff for about a month. Although I didn't know him for a long period of time, Chris was always a hoot to work with -- he always made me laugh. Just like Jenni and Jeff, I think he is a comic genius. He took great pride and care in trying to teach me the ins and outs of working for Jeff -- he tried to set me up for success with my new job. He was a good friend to me in those early days and for that I will always be grateful. I wish him the best.
