"...and what does the designer do?! STIFF US for our fee. NOT COOL."

on Feb 15, 20100

Well I must say, I both laughed and winced watching this episode! My goodness…First of all, I just want to discuss something that anyone outside of our business might be a bit perplexed about -- the scene where I walk off in the middle of a conversation at work -- to put pajamas on! Haha, even I thought it looked a little kooky watching now.

For all of us at People’s Revolution, Fashion Week is not just one literal week -- it is basically about three very LONG weeks -- as the prep time in the 2 weeks leading up to the actual shows is really our busiest time of each fashion season. We all practically live in the office and we don’t have a day off for what seems like forever. I usually have at least 3 pairs of shoes under my desk, including heels for emergency party dressing, and flats so I have something to change into AFTER the show or party. I’ve always got a few extra bags of clothes laying around, with different types of outfits -- some comfy clothes for late nights at work and dressy outfits for meetings and events, and of course plenty of black tights and black tank tops – essentials to keep on hand at all times.

I'm sure your hating all the emails....but just couldn't resist. Triple love the show and the "triple threat women" with balls of steel. You women are all rocking it with strength and the true meaning of hard work and not fake *rap like all the strange phoney housewife shows and the momsters in them. What are they teaching our young women, but nothing....

Kel is right on, your company needs to be charging these interns to be working for you and the reason I say "kids" is because the majority of young adults and teens have no idea about work ethic, repect or integrity (at work and even in their relationships these days.) They are shallow and spoiled and they don't know how to make it in the real world.....shame on us parents that has caused it....including myself. Hope to see many more seasons and sending many blessing your way.

Oh my! I just finished watching the 3rd episode. I am a 47 year old former fashion industry girl---trained "old school". I too have teeth marks in my nails every time I see the show---I LOVE IT!!! I have never done this before, I actually YELL at the tv...! You would have to bleeeeep me as much as you do Kelly, if I worked with some of the junior staffer at P Rev. Unless it is part of the Bravo network "drama" story line, I can't imagine why any business would jeopordize their business with assistants and interns who are so incompetent. Kelly really could charge $10,000 to teach young people the proper way to work within the industry. That's another show for Bravo, too. "Watch while Kelly and her executive staff interview potential student interns for Bravo's Kell on Earth aka Kell Idol." Thanx for the show, you guys make me feel a part of the industry again. Hope you had a GREAT fashion week last week. Get rid of all of the current asistants and interns for next season--start all over. There are people who would kill to work for you guys and they would do a great job. Hang in there...!

I've recently landed an internship in London with a well-known fashion PR firm and you are the spinning image of the owner of the agency. If she is anything like you, the next 9 months are going to be amazing! I don't think the show airs in the UK but you better believe I'm going to share with them all about People's Revolution. Hope to see you at London Fashion Week!

Emily, I have to say that I LOVE your work ethic. It amazes me how some of the younger generation just doesn't understand what it means to become sucessful and to maintain a name in the fashion industry!. Stephanie V. really needs to take some time management courses! Keep up the GREAT work! You Slayer You!!!

You've got the Brass Balls in the group....well you and Kell of course....but your talk with your sister was totally on topic with the Voor....she's gotta go and I'm thinking she is on the next episode....nothing but applause from me for that one!!! LOL

you work so hard
you work so hard

And seem so lonely. What a cute apartment, but I expected to see several cats. Does your landlord not allow them. You should get some, so you have someone that loves you when you get home. If they seem like too much responsibility, start with some fish.

Emily- It was fun to learn you are from Minneapolis too! I work in sales and event planning and my suggestion to you would be to hire someone with that backround and not just a Fashion/PR person. You and Kelly and Robin have all the great connections and you need someone who can logistically plan an event and handle all of the small things that just pop up.

You are so good with details. Obviously you have a high school degree. Way to get that designer to pay his bill. You are one sharp businesswoman,

How hard is it to make labels and mail out invitations? I too am surprised that Stephanie V has lasted this long. I am addicted to the show. I love it! My new motto for 2010 is "You say I'm a bitch like it's a bad thing." Keep slayin' Emily.

Wow! If I gave that many excuses (Vorhees) for screwing up (that seems to be the only thing that comes out of her mouth)at my job, I would have been fired long ago. When I saw the first ad for this show...I was like "no, not ANOTHER reality show...but I watched and now I am hooked. You guys are brutally honest but still show a softer side and it works!

Seriously, I'm a hot mess after watching this show. It stresses me out! My nails have teeth marks, and I'm pretty sure I'm knocking off about 5 years of my life expectancy from that one hour of Kell On Earth fan stress, (GEEZE, and I'm only watching...I'm not even there!)... nonetheless, I'm addicted, and I can't wait for next week. You all are great!

Emily, LOVE your show, but have no idea why you and your colleagues feel the need to trash Stephanie V. in EVERY. SINGLE. BLOG. Do I agree that she seems a horrible fit for the Revolution? Yes. That's apparent to us viewers. Be the professionals you claim you are and move onward and upward. The hate is getting a little tired.

Emily, you are GREAT! I really enjoy that you say what you mean and mean what you say! Just can't understand why you and Kelly (adore her too!) have not FIRED Stephanie V ... that's just weird to me. Shephanie V is nice, I am sure, but just not right for the job that she has been assigned.
