Jeanenne Bell's story
Fox Studio' New York called The Hairwork Society and
asked who would be the best hair authority for giving a segment on Victorian Hair Jewelry.
Well of course, C.Jeanenne Bell came to mind. With all the devotion and research given to
her new book, soon to be release in May, I felt Jeanenne was well prepared for the trip.
"Go" Jeanenne "Go,"
Please take me with you!
WE made the trip to NY and Jeanenne was on Fox FX.(Watch
for the reruns) It was only 3 1/2 minutes of airtime so I didn't get on, but I was there
and we had a GREAT time! Except, the day of the show, I opened the cab door on the curb
side and a fellow on a bicycle ran into it. I about had a heart attach when he went
flying. Everything turned out ok, although I left the cabbie trying to fix his
door.... New York...You really had to be there!.
