Kelly Cutrone's reality TV show "Kell on Earth" touches down Feb. 1st
A year ago we noted that PR maven Kelly Cutrone had inked a reality-show deal with a TV production company called Magical Elves. Today we got word that her show, "Kell on Earth," is slated to bow on Bravo at 10 p.m. on Feb. 1st, 2010.
This isn't Cutrone's first spin on the reality-go-round; she's appeared on "The Hills" and its spin-off, "The City," as the employer/mentor of Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, respectively. And anyone who has darkened the doorstep of fashion weeks in New York, London or Paris should instantly recognize the black-clad force of nature, who has worked with designers and labels including Paco Rabanne, Jeremy Scott, Vivienne Westwood, Longchamp, Nicky Hilton and Whitley Kros.
We're told the cast will be rounded out with Cutrone's cadre of helpmeets: Robyn Berkley and Emily Bungert (People's Revolution partners whose names and faces should be familiar to the fashion press), Kelly's former assistant (now a junior executive), Stefanie Skinner, and her new assistant, Andrew Mukamal -- whose juggling of the various duties of the show and Cutrone's schedule (in the midst of it all, she's penning her first book, the working title of which is "If You Have to Cry, Go Outside") should make Rachel Zoe's long-suffering assistant Brad look as if he's been on spring break.
Bravo describes the new show as a "no-holds-barred look into the life of one of America's most legitimate taste-makers as she balances running her wildly successful PR company, People's Revolution, juggling fashion weeks in New York and London, with being a single mother and one of New York's most notable women about town."
Even though the first episode is two months away, we already know our favorite scene -- it's going to be the one where some sad-sack seat squatter naively tries to poach a prized front-row seat at a Cutrone-produced runway show and gets their gluteus maximus very publicly handed to them in front of the entire Bravo nation.
"Kell on Earth" indeed.
