A reality TV show watching friend of Racked passes on the news that our favorite NYC retail scene micro-celebrity, Jeff Goldstein of Blue & Cream, just guested on an episode of Real Housewives of New York City. In the scene, Goldstein (hat cocked to the side, shades on, stone cold lamping) helps one abhorrent couple drop $8,000 at his Hamptons boutique. The fun starts at 39:24, for those who don't want to watch the entire episode. [Bravo; Previously]
