You know Kelly Cutrone, owner and publicist of People’s Revolution? Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad’s boss on The Hills or was it just The City? Well she’s out and about doing press for her upcoming Bravo reality show, Kell on Earth, (premiering on February 1!) and her self-help book brilliantly entitled If You Have to Cry, Go Outside…And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You.
She gives lots of frank quotes on a recent conference call with reporters, such as her thoughts on women on television:
There aren’t that many strong women on TV. Even if you look at Sex and the City … if you look at women on television … Sarah Jessica Parker’s character is obsessed with Mr. Big and Kim Cattrall is getting banged 20 times a day.
On her not wearing makeup: You know, people have strong connotations of what women on television should say and what they should wear and how they should look. And I’m just not into it. The Bravo shot of me on the couch? It looks like I had sex with Heather Locklear and five margaritas.
On interns: We have a lot of young kids, girls, they’ve been set up to believe they’re God’s gift. And they can’t take a phone message! So when things are moving fast, me or Robin or Emily will swoop down on them and rip it. Not messing around. That causes them to get fired immediately or want to cry. On top of not being able to accomplish tasks, next thing you know you’re going to have to comfort them… This is a book for the village girl and the gay boy.
On Fashion Week crashers: You’ll see on the show I do not have a lot of patience for crashers. It happens a lot at Bryant Park… It makes me crazy when they clog up the line. Those front row seats end up costing like 3- to 500 dollars. Those are the money seats. All of a sudden I’ve got Guy Trebay standing there, who is really lovely—but he’ll just split. I don’t want to be the person standing backstage getting fired because Women’s Wear Daily or the New York Times reviewer just left because they couldn’t find a seat…. I also do my new favorite thing, the walk-away. When people are just trying to convince me and I just walk away…. Also the slide… where you just don’t say anything. And just slide away.
In these videos, she dishes on the name Kell on Earth for her new show and (shocker of all shockers) reveals that she’s a mom that lives in a pink-and-white house who loves ice skating!
Kelly Cutrone is someone that people either hate or love. I used to hate her, now I feel like I love her and can’t wait to watch her new show. Where do you stand?
