What would you say about how you’re portrayed in the show versus real life?
In real life I’m a much nicer person that I seem to be on TV. I’ve treated my interns very well over the years, and my gallery has as well. And our interns have moved on to terrific positions within the art world at Sotheby's or Christie’s or other galleries or museums, or even finding a full-time job at my gallery. We’ve provided a very exciting platform for our interns to gain experience in order to move onto other serious positions in the art world, and it’s something that we’re happy about and proud of.

What do you think about the rest of the show? What do you think about all the antics that don’t involve you?
It is very interesting for me to watch the show. I find the show hilarious. Some of the one-liners that some of the young women say are very amusing.
