Is self promotion at a charity event tacky? LuAnn weighs in on the charity controversy.

Ramona tells Jill that self promotion at a charity event is tacky, but then proceeded to promote her own business? I think it was tacky for Ramona to say it was tacky! She could have handled it better by suggesting it might not be the best of ideas, but that's just not the way Ramona operates!

Ringing the bell at NASDAQ was a very exciting day for us, as well as the Auditory Oral School. I'm very proud to be associated with such a wonderful school and so is my husband. They help to mainstream children who are deaf or have hearing problems. To be there together was truly an amazing experience.

I had so much fun teaching Bethenny how to do her catwalk. I told her to look straight ahead and to try and be as natural as possible. I told her to walk with confidence. I think she looked great at the show and she made me proud!
