So What Do You Do, Robert Verdi, Logo TV Host?

The fashion fiend reveals why he got into broadcast and how he landed his own reality TV show deal
By Diane Clehane – MEDIABISTRO

“It’s been a series of fortuitous events,” says Robert Verdi about a career that has taken him from the selling floor of ABC Carpet & Home in Manhattan to various studios in Los Angeles as a cable television headliner. While the former freelance event producer and jewelry designer isn’t exactly a household name yet, he’s one of the most recognizable faces in fashion. (He’s the guy that interviewed Meryl Streep’s character, Miranda Priestly, in the final act of The Devil Wears Prada) Having logged plenty of time on cable’s small screen doing shows he loved (Surprise by Design, She’s Got the Look) and at least one he hated (E!’s Fashion Police), Verdi is inching closer to his dream of becoming a “gay cable TV superstar” and having his own network (no joke) with the premiere of The Robert Verdi Show on Logo this month. The reality-comedy series will follow Verdi in his tireless quest for total media domination of all media and hopefully in the process, he says, give young gay men and women someone to watch who reminds them of themselves. “That’s the mission I’ve given myself,” he says.
