The usual caliber of drama, bitchiness, and stress seen each week on Bravo’s Kell On Earth was noticeably absent from the season one finale. It was like everyone at People’s Revolution had been sprinkled with magical happy dust and having a positive attitude was the cool new thing to do. As much as our cynical side feels like this “fairy tale ending” was just good editing to end the season on an upbeat note, there were some genuinely touching moments that made us think that working for Kelly Cutrone may not truly be hell on earth.
The Good (Aka Kelly, please hire us for Kell On Earth Season Two)
- Andrew and Skinner could not be more giddy and cute about planning Kelly’s surprise birthday party. Their excitement is enough to melt the heart of even the coldest fashion PR worker.
- Being the savvy PR folk that they are, Skinner and Andrew pretend to be a newly engaged couple and schedule an appointment to go taste wedding cakes, for free. Throughout their “wedding cake tasting” Andrew is not only carrying a murse, but also wearing a floor-length skirt (*see faux engagement photo above).
- Kelly’s “Mother-Daughter Time” with Ava includes taking her to a fashion movie shoot and getting their hair cut together at a luxurious salon. Can someone please give Ava her own reality show? Girlfriend’s life is totally fabulous.
- Kelly cries not once, but TWICE in this episode; once at her surprise birthday party and later while talking about the party. This reminds us that under that black t-shirt and bad-ass cursing exterior lies a woman who’s passionate about her company and employees. We’ll give Kelly a free pass for not going outside.
The Bad (aka Hell on Earth)
- “I can’t help one more person for free” – Kelly rants yet again about how she’s sick of people asking her for advice without first coughing up some money. We get it Kelly, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, or even a favor in the world of People’s Revolution.
- The People’s Revolution staff buys Kelly a pair of goat hair booties, yes goat. Picture plain black leather booties, but with a goat’s beard coming out of the ankle; they made us feel more than a little sick.
Now that you’ve gotten a full season’s peek into the world of Kelly Cutrone, what do you think: would you be able to take the heat at People’s Revolution?
On last night’s episode, Kelly produced at 1.5 minute film for DKNY about their latest Cozy style sweater ($225). Considering the happy vibes throughout the episode, we were particularly feeling the fuchsia Cozy that can be worn a number of different ways.
We can’t finish out the Kell On Earth season without including at least one of Kelly’s trademark dark sweaters. Throw on the Cozy ($225) in navy for the office or night on the town.
