I don't see Kitty like this I think she's just saying what she does for shock value. I'd liken her to Simon Cowell. Just curious - are you a millennial or a gen x'er? I'm Gen X and I think she's a lot like a normal coach or critic. I find her hysterical. However I have heard millennial say she's mean and awful. I'm wondering if it's a generational thing or what.
See I think I would have gone deeper. I would have said "the star is a symbol of hard work and perseverance. When you first come into training camp as a rookie, all you want to do is earn that star, and you give your blood, sweat, and tears to wear it. My star represents my hard work to become a DCC and the pride I have in setting a goal for myself and achieving it. So many women don't get the privilege, and I'm grateful to be one of the few who is blessed with the honor of having it." The judges would have eaten that ish up.
