Kelly Cutrone was born on November 13, 1965, in Camillus, New York. She went to New York City after earning her degree from Syracuse University in 1986.

A little over a year later, Cutrone and Jason Weinberg, a former intern for Susan Blond, established Cutrone & Weinberg.
Cutrone surrendered her share of Cutrone & Weinberg to her co-founder because she was sick of the P.R. industry. She then worked as a tarot card reader for an entire year and a half.

The eight-episode reality TV series “Kell on Earth” about Cutrone and the People’s Revolution premiered on Bravo in February 2010 with Cutrone serving as executive producer. The series followed Cutrone as she juggled being a single mother and having her own business of being a Fashion Week producer in New York and London. Cutrone joined “Dr. Phil” as a contributor in November 2010.
“If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You,” Cutrone’s autobiography, was published by “HarperOne,” a HarperCollins brand, in February 2010. Meredith Bryan contributed to the writing of the New York Times best-selling book. “Normal Gets You Nowhere,” Cutrone’s second novel, was released on May 3, 2011.
