Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Juliet told you she told Julie about your “wipe the floor with you” exchange?
Caroline Stanbury: I was exasperated, it was a flippant comment. I had simply had enough. New Year’s was at least a week before, and I was done with this topic. But Juliet being Juliet just wouldn’t let it go. I was going through the biggest crisis at work that I have ever had to go through, and I just didn’t have the head space to discuss these things anymore. I wanted her to stop calling me. She had already blown things up with Jules; it was just typical.
Bravotv.com: Tell us about seeing Julie succeed with JUB and watching her thinking of you to motivate her and give her confidence.
CS: I was happy for Julie, she deserves it. Small brands only succeed when the owner is passionate. Julie truly deserves it. It was nice to be of any help at all and nice for her to say I mentored her. All I had done was give her a push, she has done everything on her own.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of Julie’s “kale” olive branch and her saying she’d rather have you as a friend than an enemy?
CS: I was confused a little bit. Again because it has been such a giant topic for her, she has spent so long apologizing for it, and has come with a gift in the other hand. I’m just going to take it, say thank you, and move on. It’s easier to be friends than to fight again. I just want to let go of all the drama to be honest.
Bravotv.com: What is your take about Julie and Juliet clashing at the party? Especially considering your name was brought up so much in their confrontation.
CS: I made it very clear I wanted no confrontation and it’s between the two of them. They’re both annoyed at each other for dropping each other in it, and I’m not really listening to be honest. It’s between them.
Bravotv.com: We noticed the piñata was a unicorn — any reason for that considering your onesie?
CS: No reason at all. You try finding a piñata and let me know how many you find.
