Guess which TV personality’s interview was one of the most viewed in mediabistro.com history? No, not Harvey Levin. Not even Hoda Kotb. It’s Kelly Cutrone, founder of fashion PR agency People’s Revolution.
After shaking things up during MTV’s The City, the spitfire entrepreneur dropped by our Media Beat studio to talk about her latest vehicles: the book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside … And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You, due out tomorrow, and her new show, “Kell On Earth,” which premiered on Bravo last night.
But don’t expect to hear any whining about how her brazen persona is the creation of drama-seeking TV editors. “I feel like I’m on one of the only ‘real’ reality shows,” she said.
PART 2: Tomorrow, Cutrone discusses the top fashion industry PR and marketing trends and the fact that people are still talking about her infamous decision to bring Eliot Spitzer call girl Ashley Dupre to a client’s runway show last year.
PART 3: On Wednesday, Cutrone gives tips to newbies looking to enter the fashion marketing world and dishes on the first time she had to fire someone.
