Comedy writer Bonnie Datt once bought a chainmail vest "for clubbing"—a purchase she later came to lament, once she realized that chainmail wasn't particularly slimming. Inspired by this, she now spends her spare time asking famous people to dish about purchases which they initially loved—but ended up regretting, for Buyer's Remorse.

This week's Buyer's Remorse interviewee is Jennifer Aspen, one of the stars of the new ABC comedy GCB. In anticipation of the show's spring debut, Jennifer cut quite the path around Fashion Week last February—everywhere we were, she was. But this is not Jennifer's first big role. She also starred in the sitcom Rodney and Party of Five. Which explains why her worst case of Buyer's Remorse was tied to an incident which happened to her on the way to a major award show...

Racked: Jennifer what was your most memorable incident of Buyer's Remorse?

Jennifer: Mine was a super high pair of platforms that I could walk in at the store, but after actually wearing them for more than half an hour it was the worst thing. I actually fell going to the Emmys—in a ditch. Fell in a ditch, with the shoes!

Racked: Do you remember what brand they were?

Jennifer: Alessandro—something. They had to be at least six and a half inches.
