Jewelry Designer Carol Brodie Gives Us The Real ‘Poop’ On Elephants During Her HSN Visit

November 15, 2009

628670Well, we walked into the room in the middle of Carol Brodie’s three-hour show on HSN Saturday, and this is what we heard.

“I went on a safari for my birthday and all I saw was elephant poop with the hot smoke coming out of it,” blonde Brodie told host Connie Craig-Carroll.

What the heck! We had to watch the video later on HSN’s Web site to figure out what Brodie was talking about.

Brodie made her elephant remarks while describing a $170 “tusk” pendant that is part of her jewelry line. It’s crafted from frosted white topaz, white diamonds and African white sapphires.

Brodie, a veteran of Harry Winston, said she had gone to South Africa and seen marvelous wildlife like zebras, but no elephants. As the safari rode along, Brodie — obviously a city girl — said they passed big mounds with smoke coming out of them.

She was still asking where the elephants were when the safari guide got out of their truck and took a whiff of one of those mounds. Surprise, surprise — it was elephant dung, which was supposed to be leading Brodie and her crew to the behemoths.

Hence Brodie’s “all-I-saw-was-elephant-poop” remark about her birthday adventure.

We figure that will be the one and only time anyone will hear the words “elephant poop” uttered on HSN.
