Media Beat: Kelly Cutrone Calls New York Media Scene “Boring”

New York Fashion Week is almost upon us, but you wouldn’t know it from the media’s fixation on Kelly Cutrone‘s decision to bring Eliot Spitzer call girl Ashley Dupre to a client’s runway show…in 2009.

“That was a year ago. That’s how boring New York is,” says Cutrone in our latest Media Beat interview. “That’s how boring and uninteresting everybody else in New York City is, that there is nothing else to talk about.”

Never one to mince words, the People’s Revolution founder also gives us her plans for this year’s event and weighs in on the latest ethical concern rocking the PR world: is it wrong to offer bloggers a finding fee for client referrals?

Media Beat: Kelly Cutrone On Being Part of a ‘Real’ Reality Show

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,” premiering on Bravo tonight.

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.

Kelly Cutrone: Fashion Publicity Like ‘Working In Emergency Room’

With this release, the title certainly sets the stage. In her first book, “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You,” fashion publicist turned reality TV star Kelly Cutrone delivers what she is known for: no BS commentary.

On the fast paced world of fashion PR:

If anyone really wanted to change the world, they’d bring in the fashion bitches, because nobody gets things done faster.

On getting fired by designer Yigal Azrouel after bringing Eliot Spitzer call girl Ashley Dupre to his Fashion Week show:

Could it really be that, in 2009, the fashion industry – which creates images of girls who look like they’ve been gangbanged on Alice in Wonderland adventures and calls them ad campaigns – was turning on me because I gave a front-row seat at Fashion Week to some girl who, like many of the women who attend fashion shows…had sex for money with a man thirty years older than her?

On meeting with Donald Trump and potentially working with him:

Trump might have been a godsend for our bottom line, and he himself might also have been one of New York’s most recognizable and well developed personal brands, but I still didn’t want that brand anywhere near mine.

Cutrone goes on to write that fashion PR is akin to “working in an emergency room.” The book, to be released by HarperOne February 2nd, is chock full of little ditties like this. It coincides with the premier episode of Cutrone’s Bravo reality show, “Kell on Earth.”
