Jill relishes in the fun at her birthday party -- and less so in the drama that came after.

To me the Sweet 16 party is somewhat of a emancipation or right of passage. Ally had a Bat Mitzvah, so for her Sweet 16 we rented a limo for her and her friends to go bowling and out for dinner. I let Ally plan it and kissed her goodbye. Both Victoria and Avery looked lovely and their enjoyment of their birthday is all that matters in the end. As a gift, we gave them each a lovely black rope bracelet with a sterling silver drop from Kwiat Jewelers, where all the proceeds go to charity.

In the final scene of the episode you see Bobby, Simon, and Mario at the bar. Bobby had been hearing from multiple sources that Simon was heavily engaging in mean tweeting of Kelly and me. Bobby rarely interferes with any any of this as he generally thinks it's all nonsense. Bobby on his own felt that he needed to have an adult conversation with Simon asking him nicely to stop this behavior. Simon agreed and shook Bobby's hand. Clearly, Simon was not sincere and is still mean tweeting the both of us.

Time goes by so quickly. Before you know it, it will be fall, which means that Skweez Couture will finally be in stores. In addition to Lord & Taylor and Macy's I am pleased to announce that it will also be sold in Von Maur.

I will calling be into Lisa Wexler's radio show Friday to talk about this weeks episode, as I do every week. I will be on at 5:30 EST. Call in at 203-845-3044.

Lastly, I want to thank ALL OF YOU for watching. Bobby brings home letters and gifts almost every night and I will cherish every one of them.

Until next week. . .
