Hi Bethenny!

I wanted to pass along an idea for the swipe girl business. When women have mammograms they are not aloud to wear deodorant so having a "swipe" in the dressing room for them to put on some deodorant after mammogram would be great. She could market to Breast Centers or medical supply companies. I LOVE your show!!!!
