Q: Why do you think New Jersey has become the go-to state for reality shows?

A: The people in New Jersey, maybe they have larger-than-life personalities. For us, we didn’t have a title for our show. And when “Jersey Shore” came on, (an executive with the show said) “You are in New Jersey. We will just name it ‘Jersey Couture.’ ”

Q: How do you feel about how Jersey is represented to the rest of the world?

A: We don’t have that drunken stupor and the negative energy. We are the only reality show where everybody works.

Q: How about “Cake Boss,” and he’s in Hoboken?

A: OK, he is like us.

Q: How did this show come about?

A: It was March of 2009. ... A lady walks in and says, “I need a dress for my daughter’s wedding.” She was nasty and abrupt. My mom says, “You are going to help her.” And she is with her daughter, the bride, and everything I am pulling out is “No! No! No!” She didn’t know what she wanted, and she had a broken foot and had put on a few pounds. Just by talking with her, I was trying to get out of her why she was unhappy. Minutes later, my mom designed her a gown, we had a dress on her ... and the daughter goes, “I am a TV producer. I would love to do a show on how you do your business. As soon as I finish my honeymoon, I am going to call you.” And she did call. It was just about providing good customer service.
