True, but John was completely up-front about how he knew nothing about fashion and he left the actual fashion business to Kate. He even told Shane that he selected a cover that made it believable that he was a "hands-off boss."

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Business at that level is business, it doesn't matter whether its cosmetics, craft supplies, groceries, chemicals or stocks. The most sought after CEO in the world is the head of Michael's Arts & Crafts...and I guarantee you he can't needlepoint to save his life, but he...just like EJ & Stefano can make money!!
And if that's all the two of them were doing, that would be fine. But instead, EJ is all up in the middle of it. The way they're playing it, it's not just business. I wasn't crazy about John running Basic Black either, but I don't remember him sitting around designing dresses. And if he did, I'd be saying the same thing. Victor owns Mad World, and he's not naming lipsticks.
I hate John running Basic Black. (Was that a Dena Higley idea?) The only time I was okay with it when he was using it as a cover for an ISA operation.
That's the major difference between EJ actually being involved in cosmetics.
And the less said about Sami running a cosmetics company the better. Besides her utter lack of qualifications, the show has done nothing to make her believable in a professional setting. Her wardrobe alone would send buyers fleeing.
