As I was flipping through the channels at my house is Atlanta, I came across a show on Bravo called “Kell on Earth.” I did not know about this show since my cable in Statesboro only consists of 50 channels, that when I saw it in Atlanta, I was surprised and lured in to watch more. I originally saw the life of Kelly Cutrone on the MTV show “The Hills” but the main focus was on the life of Lauren Conrad and only highlights of Cutrone were shown. I ended up watching back to back episodes of the show and fell in love with it immediately and decided I wanted my career to be based on this, which is why I am getting a minor in fashion merchandising.
The basis of “Kell on Earth” is a reality show that follows a publicist (an essential part of public relations), Kelly Cutrone, as she bullies her way through the underbelly of the New York fashion world. Cutrone is the founder of the P.R. company People’s Revolution. Cutrone lives a fast-paced, whirlwind life juggling her business in a tough economic climate, organizing major fashion shows across the world, and managing the everyday hectic pace of People’s Revolution. Also somewhere in between all of the chaos, she manages to make time for her personal life, which includes being a single mom to daughter Ava, and writing her first book “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside.” I believe that this show uncovers the reality of public relations, it is hard to keep clients happy because demands and expectations are so high in this industry. But Cutrone takes her job very seriously and will not let her reputation fail. I believe this women to be an idol and I would love to work for her one day.
