“I’m a little bit offended,” she said. “A lot a bit, actually. To talk down to a woman in this business? We're running the world right now.”

Then she really let him have it. “I'm trying to be nice but I really kind of want to hit you across the face right now!”

During the show the singer/actress/businesswoman actually Tweeted about Nicholas, writing: “I know what a buyer wants @nicholasbowes and I really hope you take everyone’s advice to heart. #FashionStar”.

Nicholas’ comments didn’t help him, not surprisingly, and he landed in the bottom two and was sent home at the end of the show, but not without a parting word from Jessica, “'I wish it was just confidence and not arrogance,” she said.

Fashion Star airs on NBC Tuesdays 10/9c.
