Teenager wants a refund from her prom dress to pay for boyfriend's funeral

And Diane & Co. says no!

A New Jersey dress shop best known for its role on an Oxygen channel reality show is under fire after refusing to refund a high school sophomore after her boyfriend was killed in a car accident weeks before prom.

16-year-old Jackie Genovese told Fox News that after her boyfriend of two years, James, was killed coming home from a baseball team dinner, she tried to return her prom dress to Freehold's Diane and Co., which is featured on Oxygen's "Dress Coutoure".

"I just wanted the dress out of my house, I couldn't see it, I would just hysterically cry all the time," she said. "I just wanted to give the money to his family because they deserved it because they mean so much to me."

But the store refused to refund the $1200 dress and would only give her a store credit – even after her mom went in to speak to the owner.

In response, a mother of one of Jackie's friends set up a Facebook page boycotting the popular dress store – which now has more than 9,700 fans.

"Wonder if they ever heard the saying 'there is an exception to every rule.' This should have been the exception! One of the most exciting times in a girl's life is going to the senior prom with the guys she loves. Something very horrible happened, it's not that she just didn't want the dress anymore. Her heart's been broken and I am sad for her that she has to go through this now," one member of the page wrote.

What the heck is wrong with the owners of that store, anyway?

I'll buy the dress for $1,200--sell it to me--and tell the store to go and screw themselves, and let the people of Jersey shop somewhere else!

The store has done nothing wrong. The refund policy is clearly stated. What the teen is trying to do is transfer her problem to the store owner. Everybody has a good excuse on why their problem deserves an exception. With eBay...she can easily sell her dress online.
