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.

In honor of last night's Emmy Awards, this week's Buyer's Remorse subject is Nurse Jackie star Edie Falco. The always impressive actress has won four Emmys, two Golden Globes, five Screen Actors Guild Awards and this year was nominated for her first Tony. And while we suspect Falco was happy to find room in her Manhattan home to store all those awards, her Buyer's Remorse item wasn't so lucky...
Racked: Can you tell us about something you've had Buyer's Remorse about?
Edie Falco: Yeah, a mini trampoline. I bought it and I had this whole idea about how it was going to help me exercise, but it ended up becoming this big giant thing I had to store somewhere and there's nothing big enough to put it in.
Racked: And it's New York.*
Edie Falco: And it's New York!
Moral: Even the rich and famous struggle with storage space in New York.
