>> Page Six reported this morning that Kelly Cutrone fired her former assistant Andrew Mukamal because after appearing on Bravo's People's Revolution-centric show Kell on Earth, Mukamal, in her words, "cared more about being a TV personality than being my assistant." She added that he was distributing photos of himself in front of the People's Revolution logo, with captions about what he was wearing: "Just because you worked as an assistant in the fashion industry doesn't make you an expert." Mukamal, who has reportedly pitched his own reality show to E!, responded, "No comment." But Cutrone took to her Twitter this afternoon to clarify: "Time to go on record about Tara Palmeri's Page Six item about [Andrew Mukamal] and I - Andrew has not worked at [People's Revolution] since July — I am not upset about his desire to be on TV — I wish him the best — If I wanted to cut ties sharply or in an aggressive manner with Andrew — I would have done so in July not now — Must have been a slow day over at Page Six."

>> Kelly Cutrone Working on Scripted, Fashion-Based Show with MTV? — Kelly Cutrone's Bravo reality show Kell on Earth hasn't been picked up for a second season yet — a Bravo spokesperson confirmed the jury was still out, although the show's ratings were small, with the series premiere bringing in under 300,000 viewers. It seems that Cutrone's not holding her breath: word has it that Cutrone might be heading back to her old digs at MTV for a new project. "Who has a new deal at MTV? Hmmmm, could it be Kelly C ?!!!! I think so," Tweeted Cutrone on Sunday. While an MTV rep declined comment, insiders confirm that Cutrone and MTV are in discussions, and from Cutrone's tweets yesterday, it sounds like she's veering out of reality TV: she's set to be in Los Angeles at the end of the month to pitch a pilot for a scripted, fashion-based show she's teamed up with Fake Empire, the executive producers of Gossip Girl, for. "Fiction is the new Reality," she Tweeted. [Vulture, @peoplesrev, @peoplesrev, @peoplesrev]
Here's a reader request from Anna:
I am totally in love with Ava's bed from Kelly Cutrone's apartment. So far it has been hard to find anything like it, especially for something that is not amazingly expensive. I was wondering if you had any resources for where I could get a bed like this. I just got a new apartment and need a new bed.

>> Kell on Earth Renewal Up in the Air, But Kelly Cutrone Already Has Another TV Project —Kelly Cutrone's "Kell on Earth" reality show on Bravo came to a close with its season finale on Monday, but will it be back for more? "Nobody announces a season two at the end of a show," Cutrone says. "I don't really know what's going on." A Bravo rep added, "We don't have any decisions on a season two yet." But Cutrone also noted that she signed a "major deal in LA last week" for a "scripted network TV show." The show will be about the fashion industry, and Cutrone says she's set to executive produce and write. [PRNewser]
It's almost cap and gown time! In the third season finale of Greek, Cappie and co. are chilling on Spring break pre-graduation from Cyprus Rhodes, but it's hardly goodbye — the show will come back for a fourth season, which many of you are happy about. In the episode, titled "All Children . . . Grow Up," we'll find out if Casey gets into law school and what it means for her relationship with Cappie. I'm guessing we'll also have a satisfying setup of where the characters will go when the series returns post-grad.
Meanwhile, over on Bravo, Kelly Cutrone's reality show Kell on Earth comes to a close. This first season has seen several of the People's Revolution staff either fired or having quit, and that's just the beginning of the drama for the NYC office. I got shamelessly addicted to the show, mainly because of Cutrone's brazen attitude and the highly stressed but fabulously dressed staff members (most notably assistant Andrew). Kell on Earth hasn't been picked up for a second season yet, but considering the company's rotating door of employees, there's a ton of material there for more.

Have you all tuned into PR-maven Kelly Cutrone's reality show on Bravo? Kell On Earth follows the busy workers at Kelly's fashion PR firm People's Revolution. One of the show's stars Stefanie, aka Skinner, is obviously a valued hardworker, but she sometimes comes off as a bit of a workaholic, having trouble delegating projects to others. Not only does her busy schedule result in scrambled eggs for dinner, it's also having a negative impact on her social life (nonexistent) and love life (doomed).
On last night's show, Skinner had trouble disconnecting from her cell phone while spending time with her boyfriend of one year — it totally reminded me of The Devil Wears Prada. Skinner was a little rude, and you could tell that it upset her boyfriend. But while she seemed to really like him, she had no intention of putting work on the back burner. So by the end of the episode, her boyfriend broke up with her. Have you ever been in a similar situation?
If you're used to getting your fashion fill via shows like The Hills and The City, then Kell on Earth is a large dose of reality. It tells it like it really is in the fashion world. I caught up with all four episodes this weekend and I'm hooked. I've worked with Kelly and her staff before, but to witness their everyday chaos is both entertaining and stressful. It's also nice to see the motherly side of Kelly — Ava is such a little fashionista! Tell me, are you watching the show? What do you think so far?
Backstage at the Jeremy Scott show, we caught up with People Revolution's Kelly Cutrone who directed the show. Cutrone talks about what makes the visionary designer such a pleasure to work with.
Ever since her appearances on The Hills and later The City, PR maven Kelly Cutrone has attracted attention as a brusque, no-nonsense personality — and shown herself perfect for her own reality show. Bravo's Kell on Earth focuses on the People's Revolution founder and a handful of her associates when it premieres tonight.
I've always been fascinated by Cutrone — even though I'd be terrified to work for her, I think she's endlessly watchable. It'll be interesting to see if the producers try to make her more sympathetic; supposedly we'll get to also see her life as a single mom. That said, with a name like Kell on Earth, I don't expect to see too much of her softer side during work hours.

Talking about censoring herself for television, Cutrone promised she remains "one of the most unedited PR communications expert that exists" while filming her show and that she doesn't allow the cameras to alter her often-explosive reactions. On hiring and firing staff members, Cutrone revealed, "we lose a couple of peeps along the way this season." Adding she hates to let people go, Cutrone explained how she recently had an employee do the firing because she needed to get to a Jonas Brothers concert with her daughter Eva.
However laissez-faire the PR guru seems to be about opening her life to Bravo's camera crews, Cutrone admits premiering a new show is dangerous territory. "I'll be happy in a couple of weeks if the ratings are good," she said. "You have to get good ratings to stay on T.V. If not, there's nothing to talk about." And, in Kelly's world, nothing to talk about might just be the worst fate. Kell on Earth premieres tonight.
