Today brings news that Kelly Cutrone, fashion/reality TV PR Star, author and America’s Next Top Model judge, has closed the Los Angeles office of her firm People’s Revolution, which the general public got to know via long-running dramatic masterpiece The Hills. The firm’s New York offices are, of course, still going strong.
Cutrone’s note to her press contacts (which sadly do not include us):
“In 1996 I opened People’s Revolution in Los Angeles, California. Over the last 18 years People’s has had quite a run! LA was our birthplace. With all of the changes in technology and our main focus in New York, I have decided not to renew our lease on 7005 Melrose. We are very interested in renting a house with a swimming pool as a possible option going forward so please do let us know if you know of anything.”
This news also recalls the heady days of 2010, when Bravo and MTV seemed determined to create a reality show centered around a PR firm. They did not succeed, though we do now have at least one PR sitcom to look forward to (or not).
