I really like the additions I did to www.truefaithjewelry.com. You can now purchase a necklace that is diamond-like by the inch with beautiful pendants that look vintage. I mix sterling silver jewelry (plated with rhodium, an alloy of platinum) with all my other original vintage pieces and no one can tell the difference! Best of all, the quality is great and it maintains its luster and shine. So in addition to crosses, we've branched out to do other types of pieces. But we also have new fashion crosses, and we offer traditional items for First Communion and Confirmation. I am really pleased with how the line has come out. Throughout the show I am wearing all my designs, and I am really proud of them.
Kelly really does not show herself. She seems sweet, but I have no clue who she is. She does not seem to socialize with the other women. I was really very disappointed when she took me to the Richard Meier exhibit. She claims she is a great friend of his, yet she knew nothing about him. So how can they be great friends? I found that very telling of the type of person she is.
I really like Luann, but she always says one thing and then does another. When she spoke with me and Bethenny, I knew she was not telling the full truth. She wasn't saying everything she really thinks. But her daughter was there, so I did not push it.
Instead, I said to Luann, "You married young, to someone twice your age." Well, that did not go over very well. I think I might have struck a chord, as I feel she overreacted. She was truly beside herself, which I think resulted in displaced anger. Listen, lets face it - he looks like an older man when he is next to Luanne. At this point I thought the best thing was to apologize. My intent was not to hurt her, I just wanted to stop her from making the condescending remarks that got me peeved. I just wanted to move on, and said sorry. Again, I had never considered that she would get so upset. Luann made some not nice remarks to me, but I was able to let it go, as two wrongs do not make right and our disagreement could have escalated to a higher level.
I would never ask someone if they were getting retouched. The comment spoiled a special moment for Bethenny. It was just not nice, and for someone with big mouth who says too much at times, if I thought it was not nice, then you know it was not nice. The sad part was that Luann did not even realize what she had done. She kept backpedaling, saying she was trying to help Bethenny. Oh well, we all live and learn. No one is perfect - not even the Countess!
