How Does Brittny Gastineau Ward Off Jealousy? With Diamonds, Of Course!
When former Gastineau Girls, mother-daughter duo Lisa and Brittny Gastineau, created their Tres Glam fine jewelry line, they did so from the perspective of reality stars and Hollywood insiders. “The diamond evil eye in 18 karat gold is our main thing,” Brittny told PEOPLE from Los Angeles, where she lives with her mother. “It’s designed to protect you from any jealousy. And of course there’s a lot of jealousy, especially when you’re on TV. You have a lot of eyes [on you] and sometimes not everyone’s wishing you well.” Brittny has given the baubles to best friend Kim Kardashian and E! News host Giuliana Rancic, schooling them in her family’s superstition before bestowing the gifts. “I just feel like when you’re in the public eye, you do need protection. And I’m telling you, I feel naked without my evil eye. If I don’t have it on, I like freak out.” As for whether the Gastineaus would do another reality show, having seen the astronomical success of their close pals the Kardashians, Brittny says yes—but the focus would have to be on their work: “I love TV shows with depth. I would want to do a reality show showing my mom and I getting on QVC.” Check out the line for yourself at TresGlam.com–Suzanne Zuckerman
