Tabatha wasn't sure that she'd be able to get through to Suzanne and empower her.

Happy New Year, everyone! I am so excited to be taking over Bravo once again!

Jungle Red was a mess. It was dirty and unorganized. The staff was unruly, and Suzanne had abdicated her authority by letting her daughter, Kari, run her business. The biggest problem -- Kari was there to help her mother, not because she was following her personal passion. Suzanne was refusing to grow up and take charge of her business and her life.

I have seen lots of dirt and staff not pulling their weight, but I have never seen a bin of bras or a wardrobe of clothes in a salon. It was astounding to me, and I knew I had a lot to fix in the salon and with Suzanne.
