It used to be solely supermodels who won that honour, but fashion PR guru Kelly isn't worried about the future of models.
Kelly Cutrone, famed fashion publicist, author of If You Have To Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You and star of Bravo's Kell on Earth, is also single mom to seven-year-old daughter Ava.
And look, there’s a familiar face at the end of the bar … Heidi “realizes” that she has some stuff in Lauren and Audrina’s apartment, and she decides to get it back from Audrina. You’re reminding us of your ex-boyfriend more and more each episode.
She took time to speak to me during Fashion Week about single motherhood, family and of course, must-have mom accessories.
CC: I experienced a mix of emotions when I found out I was pregnant--then suddenly single. KC: I found out I was pregnant on September 10, the night before the World Trade Center was hit, and I was delighted. I mean, I was very excited about my pregnancy, and my hormones kicked in immediately.
Ask yourself, Do you want to be a mother." He told me he didn't think my relationship with Ilario was one that would last. They weren't going to see me pregnant in a white dress, walking down the aisle. KC: You can have sex with whomever you want to; you're not trapped with the person you had the baby with.
This double-hitter recap brings up another darkly titled episode: “Just Be Careful.” Dum-dum-dum (again)! Then Lauren and Whitney chat while stretching in the gym, and the only reason this scene exists is to reinforce the idea that Lauren is jealous of Whitney’s job. Anyway, back to actual plot developments: Lauren and Stephanie are in class together, and Stephanie lets it slip that they ran into Audrina the other night: “Heidi and Audrina spoke for a long time; it kind of seems like they’re cool now.” We couldn’t wait to see Stephanie’s dark side, and here it is!
We can’t tell if Audrina is falling for her sob story, since Audrina’s face has only one expression, and it is a remarkably blank one. Lauren visits Whitney at work and starts helping her with something, and magically, someone offers her a job for Fashion Week. Heidi comes over to get her stuff from Audrina, who’s less than friendly.
Heidi goes up to her, and they chat awkwardly for a few minutes about how alone Heidi feels, etc.
Ilario [Ava's father] and I were in love; we met in Paris, where I was producing a fashion show. He had an incredible pull on me, like nothing I'd ever experienced before. I discovered I was pregnant two months into our love affair. Illario and I didn't see eye to eye on a lot of things and split up three or four months into my pregnancy.
I was in the middle of separating from my second husband and moving my business from L. From there, I put the blinders on and just focused on becoming a single mother.
Kelly wishes more people in the industry were like that, as she's tired of young girls thinking jobs in fashion are easy to come by and don't take hard work.
She places the blame for this firmly at the door of Sarah Jessica Parker's TV show Sex and the City. And my proof of Sex and the City ruining the world was Fashion's Night Out. Girls in dresses with blow outs drinking Skinnygirl margaritas by Bethenny Frankel," she fumed.
Fans of the soap may have been hoping for a real-life romance between those two, but Kelly Monaco says otherwise, even though the photos sure looks like a romance is blooming between them.
