Loredana may be an ace criminal defense attorney, but when it comes to her personal life, our gal rarely catches a break. While packing to leave town for some much-needed rest and relaxation with Robert and Rocco (gotta love the alliteration), LD gets a call from her friend Kerry Oandasan, who is in jail. To no one’s surprise, LD drops what she’s doing, cancels the trip, and rushes to jail to try to make sense of what‘s happened to her friend. After some discussion, LD, Booker and I realize this is going to occupy quite a block of time as Kerry is facing six felonies – two for identity theft, two for burglary and one each for forgery and credit card fraud. Plus, a $250K bail. All of this on a single mom of four with no priors who decided to go out shopping with her old friend AJ.
Okay. So I have a theory about this show – and it’s Biblical… In the Bible there is a passage Matthew 12:38-42: "…At judgment time, the citizens of Ninevah will come back to life along with this generation … At judgment time, the queen of the south will be brought back to life along with this generation …"

Article: Joe Zee on Designer Aysha Saeed
Her Challenge: I found Aysha an extremely interesting case from the moment I first arrived to meet her. She seemed very confident, poised, in control and yet she wanted my help, which intrigued me. After listening to her story and seeing her clothing, I had a better understanding. First of all, she’s invested almost one million dollars (one million!!) of her own money into the company and just wasn’t seeing the return on revenue she was anticipating. Sure, she was selling SOME of her collection but it wasn’t the blowout success she had anticipated. And in terms of her collection, she had some pretty shift dresses but that was it – just pretty shift dresses. I could see this being a bigger business for her in the dress departments of major retailers but she wanted to make a splash. And a splash requires creativity – which means taking her designs out of the confines of her personal dressing and into something that will stand out in a bigger way on a department store floor. But you can’t even begin to make that splash if you’ve closed yourself off to any creative brainstorming. Aysha was strong-willed and often apprehensive when it came to taking advice so welcoming ideas from her team wasn’t always top of mind for her. She needed a creative intervention – and quick. Enter a new inspiration exercise.
