She may not know much about art...

But, salesmanship, now there's something where she could give lessons;
Glafira Rosales admitted she defrauded two Manhattan art galleries of more than $30m (£18m) with 63 fake art pieces.
The paintings were said to be never-before-exhibited and previously unknown works of art by artists including Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.
They were sold to unsuspecting buyers for more than $80m (£50m).Rosales pleaded guilty to nine charges including wire fraud, tax fraud and money laundering.
She admitted in court that the works of art "were actually fakes created by an individual residing in Queens''.
But she redistributed income!
