AIR DATE: MONDAY 2/1
Make no mistake: Kelly Cutrone, the public-relations maven best known for bossing around Lauren Conrad on The Hills, is not a charm-school grad. In the opener, the single mom berates staffers at her PR firm, People's Revolution, even as they forgo sleep to help her produce runway shows at NYC's Fashion Week. The workaholic Cutrone also treats the fashion biz as seriously as brain surgery. Fine. But how disappointing that for all her cred, the only "celebrity" with whom she interacts is ex-hooker Ashley Dupré!
The good news? Kell whips up absorbing inside moments. When a computer glitch threatens to throw off a seating chart for one show, everyone panics -- mostly because, as funny assistant Andrew Mukamal puts it, each attendee "has an enormous ego." Good dish like that is always in style. (Bravo, 10 P.M.)
