Did you know that Kelly Cutrone was almost cast in that Madonna/Rupert Everett/Benjamin Bratt movie The Next Best Thing? We learned that and so much more in Complex's interview with the irrepressible PR honcho and reality fixture. In this pretty extensive interview, Cutrone discusses her disinterest in revenge (whew), likens adorable daughter Ava's lemonade stand entrepreneurialism to young designers trying to make it big, expresses motherly concern for Lindsay Lohan and diplomatically refuses to play favorites between Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad. The interview is peppered with Kelly-isms, like, "And MTV the first video ever played was “Video Killed the Radio Star,” and it did, because if you were ugly, and you were fat, and you were old, you were done, dude. You better get your steez on." Get more of your Cutrone fix in the season finale of The City tonight.
