A teaser video of Tory Burch's upcoming appearance on Rock Center with Brian Williams, which is slated to air this Thursday, reveals that she and correspondent Harry Smith will talk about her eight-year-old business and hints that the topic of her ex-husband Chris Burch definitely maybe might come up (although he's not mentioned once in the video). In it she explains how she got started, peddling "image books" rather than sketches and that she knew very little about the business side of running a retail brand before jumping in. This in the wake of Chris Burch's lawsuit against her in which he claims the same thing then attributes her success on the business side to his help. Stay tuned to see if T. Burch addresses C. Burch's allegations.
