It's only our second episode this season -- but can you believe all the DRAMA??? I mean seriously, who would have thought the slumping housing market could set the stage for such great TV?
Jeff was still fuming over the situation with Courtney and the Hancock Park house, and showed no sign of stopping. I have to admit, it's actually a bit funny for me to watch Jeff squirm a little as he has to answer to a client. Unlike me, Jeff isn't used to working for clients. I have my own design business and I have to cater to the needs of clients on a daily basis. Balancing customers' needs with personal style is a delicate thing, but it is important to remember who is ultimately in charge -- the client. I kept trying to remind Jeff of that -- but as he pointed out, both he and Courtney are hard-headed.
It may have been for the best to leave the Hancock Park job behind, since it was causing so much stress for our team. The ironic part of the whole situation is that Jeff admitted to seeing himself in the way Courtney was dealing with the situation. He got a taste of his own medicine, and didn't like it one bit. One thing you didn't get to see on the show was Jeff, Jenni, and I joking about how Courtney and Jeff were soul mates!!! They are quite alike in a number of ways.
