Spit out your gum before you meet Nicole Miller!

A few minutes with Nicole Miller and you quickly learn she dislikes typos (tweet typos really irk her), restricts gum-chewing in the office and is an avid environmentalist who recycles EVERYTHING that’s recyclable.

Perhaps the secret to a successful business came in her response to being asked what she would’ve done differently when she opened her first store, knowing what she knows now. Miller  indicated to our Leigh Macdonald that she “might have fired a few people sooner.”

Oh SASSY! We like!

This all went down as shoppers got their fashion and philanthropy on at  Miller’s newly-renovated store in Tysons Galleria.Among the crowd, DC Housewives Lynda Erkiletian and Mary Amons.  15% of the event’s proceeds went to a pediatric hospital right here in D.C.–Children’s National Medical Center

Other notable guests attending: Kate Michael and Aba Bonney Kwawu of The Aba Agency.  Check out coverage of the event on the WUSA Morning Show here.

Video: DC Housewives Private Party, Salahi a No Show

Following a week of very public combative exchanges between Michaele Salahi and the media and Michaele Salahi and the rest of the girls.. the alleged White House party crasher decided not to attend Bravo’s official premiere party for the Housewives of DC. Michaele and hubby Tareq held their own premiere at a DC club downtown.  Read Full Story here…  Watch my report from the party including an interview with Mary Amons who admits there’s rising tension between the ladies.

 

We caught up with the rest of the gang… Lynda.. who told me after Tareq threw wine on her last week at a press junket she thought it would be only appropriate to remain a target by wearing Target. Cat looked striking in black… and told me she wears mostly vintage consigment dresses. Stacie sparkled like a gem and raved about how she longs to meet 9NEWS legend J.C. Hayward (who was on the guest list).  And my personal friend Mary.. as always was a perfect 10 and +1 for great personality.  Tune in to the WUSA Morning Show Friday.. I go one on one with Mary who reminds this is a show about 5 women not ‘one couple’.
