Starting my morning with Ilario looking super fly on the couch (can you believe we bought matching Indian Kirta's on Portobello Road earlier in the week?)  How convenient... it is not easy to leave a 3,000 square foot hotel room with Ilario hanging out at 7 AM after a long night of fashion parties.

One of the things you did not see was Robyn, Emily & I actually all got married to Ilario - he did everything with us. Finally he had to make a list of rules because handling three black-haired PR Chicks - well, it is a full time job. He made all of our reservations, sorted all of our cars, got dates for the girls, he was super concierge. We kissed a lot and it was fun. Sometimes I wonder if Ilario and I should just jump back into it. We played house over the Christmas holidays for about three weeks. Wouldn't it be odd after all of this time we actually got back together full time? Hmmmmmmm.

YABA DABBA DOOOOOO!!!!!! Jeremy Scott - has been my client for over 7 years and we always have a super blast together - pushing the boundaries of pop art, fashion, provocation and communication. The Misshapes did the music for the show - I wish you could have heard all of the Flinstones samples.

Hi Kelli I was at Disneyland this past weekend and was the dork that said "Hi Kelly! Love your show" hahahahaha We were sooo excited to see you after getting off our favorite ride, Thunder Mountain. I hope I didnt draw unwanted attention to your day. The kids were soo excited, they had not seen a TV star since Hannah Montana at Walmart.LOL They took the experience to school for show and tell. Cute! Thanks for answering me and the thumbs up, you were very gracious. Have a great day!

Kelly, It was so amazing to meet you and your daughter Ava yesterday outside Pirates of the Carribean at Disneyland. I truly thank you for taking a moment to speak with me especially because I know you were on vacation. You are the most kind celebrity I have ever met. Plus you totally made my birthday! I think I have told everyone I know that I met you. Anyway I absolutely love you and your show! You truly are an inspiration to me as I am a single mom trying to make it. Thanks again. Xoxo

LOVE, what you do with your team, I think that the boss will always reflect the staff, your staff is wonderful.

I think that if you took to lunch or dinner once a week one at a time for shop talk privately, you will be able to deoposit more of your experience and knowledge based on your evaluation of the staff, your office will work in a less stressfull environment.

Hey Kelly,

As a former college football player, I truly admire your tough-love approach. It's reminiscent of my father and former football coaches -- one who understands and epitomizes hard work, diligence, and perseverance. I'd be honored to a have mentor like you.

On a side, do you read the comments? If so, please give a shout out to me! Love the show -- bring People's Rev. to the nation's cap.!

Kelly, Love, love, love Ava's style and attitude---a little version of you! Can you say where you got her adorable kitchen table and chairs? Actually, I think you should consider expanding your "empire" into the interior design realm---a book if nothing else.....I'm loving all the chairs I see on the show actually, the Ghost chairs, your kitchen chairs, the black velvet Louis XVI chair in the office, etc. I think you could give young people who aren't exactly sure of their aesthetic (ie: me) some awesome ideas, and I'd love to get my daughter some chairs as cool as Ava's!!! Thanks for the fun show! Tina

Kelly,

Love watching the show - However, could you please, please, please talk to Andrew and Stephanie about the usage of the word "like". I thought they were "professionals" but their use of the English language is horrid. Listening to them carry on a conversation is like (proper use) listening to fingernails on the blackboard. If they keep this up I am going to have to stop watching the show - it really is painful to hear them "try" to communicate. Love you though!!!

Kelly, you are short handed, and I was an administrative assistant at our former community bank that got sucked into the "big merger" craze, but right thereafter I went to work for my husband in our family owned furniture store to handle the operational management of the business....Only to be stuck managing the entire business on my own! I never minded, but business now stinks,- there are no jobs in our area and if you give me the opportunity I know I could be an asset to your business. I have the qualifications I believe you need to have a more efficiently run business, and I need a very good excuse to move out of my area, becasue I have always hated it. Please help me, and I promise you won't regret helping me! This way, rather than watching your show I could be part of it! As I am also an awesome team player and hard worker!

Kelly,

You are seriously my new favorite person. I just read your book (in one sitting), and I am so inspired. Your attitude towards life is something I (and I'm sure tons of women) strive for. I am from a very small town in West Virginia, and I aspire to be a theatre actor--so obviously I can't live here. Same sort of situation. And your stories and advice are so insightful. Thank you for being so different and inspiring to so many strong women and men.

S.M.

Hi Kell,

You show is wonderful. The only reality show that I can tolerate because it has substance to it. However, I would like to add that you are so busy with the business and growing your business that you need a stronger support team. I won't mention names because I don't want to offend anyone but, your personal/executive assistant has to be a reflection of you. You have to empower that person to run the office for you. You need a stronger person with knowledge on how to manage daily tasks and be able to handle any unforeseen problems that may arise without always having to include you. I think the office needs to be more organized. The desks seem to be run on and there is no personal space. You all are on top of each other. There is no break between you all. I do know that if you were able to break up the office in cubicles there will be a lot more camaraderie with your team because they wouldn’t have to see each move each other makes. I am and executive assistant for a fashion company and I am good at my job. I would love to help you organize your office. Off camera off course. Don’t want my boss think I’m jumping ship.

Remember Time is Money and Money is Time!!!! Your money is going to cleaning up errors made by your staff!

Wishing you all continued success. You are the FIERCE!

Kind regards, DuBois

I love this show even if it is hard to watch the interns have such a hard time with "common sense" things like putting items in a gift bag. I don't have the cleanest desk, but I think the office would drive me crazy and I'd want to spend a week going through and organizing your space! Keep up the great work, if you ever want to offer a job to a fan - I'm here for ya!! Maybe the LA office?? :)

before everyone starts getting all bitchy about the walmart comment, i ahve to say the kid is absolutely right. NO ONE in ny likes walmart bc it is trashy-- target is low priced and much classier. we dont stand for walmart here and that is why we are ny and the rest of the country is the rest of the country.

Kelly: I love your show and how you do business. It was funny to see all that copy paper. I used to do that for a big company of at least 200 people. I owned so many supplies my self I could open my own supply store out of my apartment. I know I'm too old to work for you. Keep the show going. Good luck in your personal and business life.

Dear Kelly-

I started watching you on "The City" with Whitney and I just loved your attitude for work and life.. its like either you do it and get over it or leave!! Then when I seen you were going to be on BRAVO.. and then your Show name I knew it was a not miss!! So I a faithful fan who has followed you too this show.. So are you not going to be appearing on The City anymore? I really liked how you inspired and mentored Whitney in her quest and hope she appreciated it and will not forget all you have done for her. I dont however like her friend Roxie.. I love how you put her in her place though!!

Enjoy your crazy beautiful life and daughter and I think you shouldnt let her daddy get away he is a hottie!!

Best Regards!

The entire week prior to the episode which aired 3/15/10 there was a commercial which featured some sort of tragedy, an ambulance and Kelly crying about the tragedy. I waited all week to find out what happened, but there was nothing. I googled it and the only thing involving an ambulance was the episode where the model fainted and that is not the episode I am asking about, do you know what I am talking about???

Kelly, I love you! I'm a 56 year old straight woman who has been in a high stress industry for years (I charter private jets) I would work for you in a minute! I get so frustrated watching some of your younger interns because they have no idea the education you are providing for them. There is no MBA in the country that can compare!

My ex was professor of entrepreneurship at UCLA and honestly you provide a better education than anyone could afford.

If I had the bucks right now I'd pay YOU for an internship if you'd have me. I can't wait for the book to come out although it's hard for me to imagine how you're going to do a book tour.

I am so jealous of your interns and hope in the future you consider an older person as an intern. I'm very immature for my age and love to work as many hours in the day as I can. I've "had" a life that now for the most part is on auto pilot.

Re: Ilario, my advice, if you were to ask, I'd keep it where it is. It's good. Hell, it's GREAT! Why mess it up?

PS I love that you've confirmed my entire wardrobe of black, black, black! Oh and at 56 I've never had a vibrator! :-)

Kelly, I love your show & think you are an amazing woman & a wonderful businessWoman! You are right, "if you need to cry, go outside"! I think it would be amazing to work for you. No, REALLY. With my maturity, professional demeanor, exceptional leadership skills & a "no other choice but to succeed" attitude I'd make a perfect addition to your workplace family.

Call me & I'll relocate to NYC tomorrow!

Love your show and the way you are able to do with your child and your career. Robyn and Emily on the other hand...unless the editing for their scenes is really bad they are blame shifters and not good at communicating their needs and wants. You will go through a lot more junior employees if you don't get them controlled. Take a few days to train people for what you want them to do. Emphasize this concept. Special emphasis tothat Robyn, the woman is POISON. She must believe she has ESP and that Skinner can read her mind right back. I know a chaotic person when I see it. A trauma hospital is full of chaos, but our staff is not chaotic. Robyn is CHAOTIC!!

Kelly, you are one tough broad (in a good way)... one day I will work for you--I promise, besides all the good things people have to say... I want to know where you went to college? Anyone have an idea, I love her? I'd also like to know where Stephanie Skinner went? You two are my favorites... great to look up to when it comes to success.

I have been watching your show and it is awesome. I have been in the wholesale and retail of fashion and jewelry for about 21 years and I admire you for the way you are no nonsense but have empathy for your employees. I did 32 trade shows a year when I started and people don't realize the amount of work that goes into pulling off a successful event. The travel and perks are great but I raised a 5 and 6yr old and traveled to New York,Vegas,Florida, and Vegas. I worked for Lost Enterprizes out of california. I had to quit when my son got really ill in 07. I would love to come and work for you! I know the economy is bad but I've been told I can sell glasses to a blind man. I can't wait to read your book and you are doing an amazing job with Ava. You are a force that the fashion world needs to watch out for. I am 47 and my kids are grown up and I would seriously like to meet you. Keep up the great show and love Andrew he's the bomb.

you sure don't need to teach your daughter that Wal-Mart is a bad place to shop. Some of us work hard and are happy but can only afford to shop there. I teach my kids to appreciate no matter what. Wheather it be Wal-Mart of Macy's. My kids love me and will not grow up being judgemental. Single mom, 3 kids and they are very happy and well rounded. They do not judge, and do not get upset if they have to wear something that comes from Wal-Mart. That just really upset me to hear that come out of your daughters mouth to your mother!! Grandma had the best of intentions and you didn't even let her say what she got!!!

Hi Kelly, actually had a question for you(don't even know if you would read this though) How come you have a picture of Goddess Lakshmiji and Lord Ganesha idols in your office and home? I am an Indian and started watching the show the moment I saw Lakshmiji's picture! And if you can do it so can I!

Dear Kelly, Yours is my FAVORITE bravo tv show EVER! WHY? In contrast with the Housewives, and Rachel Zoe, and most of the women featured in bravo shoes -- you have a real face! you wear black shapeless clothes! you are smart! you aren't utterly dependent on some rich, creepy guy! you don't care about make up and clothes even when your livelihood depends on people who seem to care only about make-up an clothes! you work your freakin' ass off! you don't get involved in big interpersonal drama! you are honest! you are straightforward! Well, I could go on and on. Love the show, love you, Keep up the good work.

Kelly, I am sooooooo glad "Kell on Earth" is on bravo! What a great addition to bravo's line up of shows. I find the show very entertaining. I love how you are with your daughter. Even though you have said that to be in PR you have to be (I am paraphrasing here) thick skinned, and harsh, you seem to be a very loving and kind person. I enjoy watching you with your daughter. You have definitely provided a world in which she can thrive, and grow as a human being. Kudos to you!

Kelly Cutrone. You are the only woman that cannot be summed up in even 2,000 words. Your character describes what it means to be a successful, yet holistic woman. From your work ethic, to your spit-fire personality, besides my own mother...I truly adore you. I am a Nurse Practitioner, and I know what it means to fight for your right to get and be what you want. Ruling the world is not an issue for you, and I appreciate that about you. Keep it real! You're amazing. If you want your own personal provider...I would be first in line!!!

Kell, I want to come work for you but I don't want to be on t.v. So I could like wear a paper Bag over my head. Bravo would have all these scenes of you screaming at a paper bag person. It would be a great spin. We could like cut holes out for eyes and draw a big smile on it. It would be such a statement at fashion shows. Anyway, think about it. Oh and hey! I think you are a great mom and I love how you dress. Don't go getting any Botox on me please. Keep it real!
