For some reason she was willing to give $35,000 to a woman who can make a video of a product she does not know how to produce or how much it will cost. But, hey, you'll use it once a year for Thanksgiving. She should stick to real estate.
Lori Lite of Stress Free Kids made the biggest mistake of the evening selecting Barbara as her investor rather than Kevin the infomercial millionaire rock star.
