Kelly Cutrone, the star of the Bravo TV reality show ?Kell on Earth? shopped at Babeland for an upcoming episode (see clip below). Upon learning that the episode was slated to appear only on Bravo?s web site, Kelly went to the mat with the powers that be to get the episode aired on TV (next week beginning Monday at 10 PM, check Bravo schedule for other airings). When she called to let us know, first we had the equivalent of a virtual orgasm, and then we pressed her for more details. Here?s what Kelly had to say about the episode:Why was it important to you that Bravo air this on TV and not just the web?This is a really beautiful women?s story, with a subject (sex) that is hard to talk about, and where women have a lot fewer role models. I visited Babeland because my doctor?s receptionist talked to me about her sex life--one woman reaching out to another woman to get this information. And vibrators have been one of women?s best kept secrets. Our show is about women and power, and now housewives are going to watch me shopping for sex toys, and see it as a fun and celebratory thing. (editor's note:� Kelly picked up the Bunny Love Kit, the SaSi vibrator, and some� lube.)What did you have to do to convince Bravo to air it on TV? Were they afraid of making viewers uncomfortable?Oh no, it wasn?t that, it just didn?t fit as well into the existing storyline, so I had to convince them to crop a few minutes of interoffice arguing in order to bring vibrators to women in America. Really, do we have to see my printer break one more time? But the president and VP of Bravo are both women and they liked the clip because it was funny, cool, and geared toward women.Why did you choose Babeland?I love your store because you?ve made sex toys very popular and fashionable, which until now were typically seen as appealing only to a subgroup. You give people sex toys in a pretty box!In your new book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside, you offer guidance for young women on owning their power. In this episode you are so sex-positive, did someone help you with this part of your own development?My mom really prepared me for where I needed to go. I know for a fact that my mom was into vibrators, I went through her drawers! I always knew my mom and dad had an amazing sex life, they?d send us outside to go and play for the afternoon. But I still never went to my mom to ask about sex, which is why it?s important for women to have access to the information.Any sex toy anecdotes you?d like to share?A good friend of mine gave me an anal dilator once, which I had to put in my bag as I was going through security at the Milan airport. I?m the first person at the gate, and behind me are two amazingly hot, sexy Italian business men. Sure enough, the security guy opens up my bag, pulls out the anal toy, and says ?Signora, you cannot go on the plane with this, this is a weapon.? Clearly the two Italian guys knew what is was and were ready to ask me out on a date. But I grabbed the toy back, and said ?I?m a fashion producer, I suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, and I need it to do my job.? And off I went through the gate!Kelly Cutrone is a fashion icon and the founder of the PR firm People's Revolution.
