While Jennifer called Paul’s abode “beautiful” and a “beautiful place,” Rachel called it “amazing” and quipped, “I feel so rich in this house.” However, Jennifer F. really said it all.
“Where am I? The Taj Mahal? Wow,” said the founder of shoe brand F Major, before joking with Dolores: “If Paulie looked twice at me, I’d throw your butt off. I’d be like, ‘Dolores, what? who?'”
During her separate interview on the show, Jennifer explained that while she was “trying not to be jealous of Dolores,” she was still intrigued by Paul’s house. “Fifty Shades of Grey” vibe.
“I’m getting desperate to find the red room,” he added.
