Kelly Cutrone's reality show debuted on Bravo last night, and while Andrew Mukamal certainly proved himself to be TV's new star and Kelly laid to rest any rumor that she possesses no soft spot, the show didn't exactly portray her office as the coolest in NYC.
Will this mark the end of the era of the chic "PR girls"? Probably not, but it certainly brings them down to earth. Down to...Kell on Earth! But seriously, between desks drowning in paperwork, more than one pair of sweatpants, and all those exhausted faces, it was much easier to actually picture ourselves working with Kelly (and cowering in her presence) than we previously thought possible.
After all, this is the company that launched City girls Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo to fame. This is the office in which it is not unheard of for hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold Ashley Dupre to come strolling in with her mom. Which leads to the next point: what was up with Ashley's "Yigal Loves Ashley" tee shirt idea? We're kind of disappointed that Kelly shot that down, as the ensuing drama would have given us a lot of material last Fashion Week.
So what do we want to see in upcoming episodes? Let's all hope for a little more glam and fewer technological disasters. More Andrew the Assistant and his male model chasing and mesh tee shirts. More Ava! Fewer cluttered office scenes and more flashy parties and celebrity cameos and staff in-fighting. After all, this is reality TV. It shouldn't be so real!
