Erin Brockovich and Brangelina have nothing on Kelly Cutrone, who should now think of adding lobbyist/activist to her prolific resume. As we were waiting for the What Goes Around Comes Around show to begin a the Soho Grand yesterday afternoon (more on that shortly), we had a moment to catch up with the power publicist/author/reality star/Dr. Phil correspondent and found ourselves pretty impressed. While Manhattan emerged from Hurricane Irene’s path largely unscathed last week–save for a profusion of weather-related fashion Tweets, major Sunday hangovers, and rescheduled runway shows– other parts of the Northeast weren’t so fortunate.
“My house–I have $400,000 worth of damage at my home upstate, which is really funny because I convinced the Vice President of MTV to leave New York so she wasn’t stuck,” Cutrone said. “We ended up being rescued on harnesses with ropes.”
