Her 15 minutes of fame stretched out a bit. Not quite what she bargained for. Does she know the definition of irony?

I would suspect an inside job, anyone with a closet with that much in it should have a heck of a security system.

Wow.....as much as I would love a fabulous closet like that, I definitely would not advertise it.

She probably thinks irony is when you get someone else to press your clothes. :???:

I blame the class warfare incited by Democrats and the Obama Administration for a lot of the "hating" on this woman.

Long before Obama burst like a pimple on the national scene, it was common wisdom where I grew up that it wasn't smart wearing an expensive watch in some places.

Envy.

One of the seven deadly sins, as old as human nature.

Certainly pre-dates Democrats, Obama, and a lot of haters. They have been quick to jump on the evil bandwagon, however.

For most of us, it's not envy either. It's a lack of common sense, vanity, bragging, pride and showing off. I doubt it would never have happened if they hadn't gone on TV to show off and brag about her 3000 square foot closet and to show off her valuables to the world.

I don't begrudge anyone what they have worked for and earned. I also don't feel much sympathy when they publicize it and show it off like they did and something bad happens as a result. The reporter mentioned at the very end even she acknowledges the recent "media attention contributed".
