Hi! I really don't want to sound like a whiner. I'm sure the show and all the tips are just great. I looked in today because the description in the guide said tips from "Handy Ma'am." I was shocked to see that it was a woman named Janell-Inez Woodruff. Again, I'm sure she's got great tips and is very fun. My objection is to the name she uses: Handy Ma'am. It is not original and she shouldn't accept compliments about how cute it is. The original Handy Ma'am is a woman named Beverly DiJulio. She had a show by that name on PBS for years and years. She also hosted HomeWise, one of the flagship shows on Home & Garden Television (HGTV). She was much more than great tips: her skill and knowledge in an incredible number of fields was really impressive. My sincere best wishes to Ms. Woodruff, and to you, Bethenny. You ought to look Beverly up online; I bet you'd enjoy her immensely.

Cheers!

PLEASE bring the handy Ma'am back for another segment - her tips today were priceless! And it was so great to see a woman who is handy and approachable. Her tips seemed really easy, and I'm looking forward to trying them at my house. Thank you for bringing her on! :) And I love the show!

Ms. Frankel,

I love the "Use what you have" tips. A tip that was given to me is to use Olive Oil on your hair to moisturize it. I haven't really tried it yet, but, I hear that it is good to do. Also, we are ****son's Vintage Collection and we have an online Vintage Collection store and we would love to be one of the vendors for your fashion segments, etc. We are a new company and we need help promoting our company so that we can get more customers. We have clothing, shoes, artwork, photo frames, dishes, formal gowns, wedding gowns, belts, etc., for the entire family, but, we need customers. We have been going to flea markets (dirt and parking spots), around the Atlanta area, to advertise for our company and we have been invited by local businesses, to be part of their vendor yard sales and we appreciate these invitations very much! We watch your TV show everyday and we think it is great. Our website address is ****sonsvintagecollection.com, facebook/****sonsvintagecollection and twitter/****sonsvintage. Thank you very much for your time. Sandra, s****son534@gmail.com
