WHOOP ASH was born in 2006 when Zampino tried to cook something extraordinary with her new-found love of honey after reading the best-selling book, Secret Life of Bees.

She made her own decadent body butter in her kitchen.

“To my surprise, when I googled recipes that contain honey, recipes came up that were for the body, so topical,” she said.

“I’ve learned that honey has been used as a staple of Royalty’s skincare regimens for thousands of years. Well, that piqued my interest and presented a new opportunity and challenge! So I pulled out my big Gumbo jar and started playing with the best ingredients for nourishment, hydration and skin maintenance.”

Her boyfriend made it happen: Sheree also told DailyMail.com that she loves being on RHOBH. “Garcelle and I were already good friends when I joined the show,” she began. Seen in June
