She's often called a bitch for the way she operates her business—but really, Kelly Cutrone just wants to be honest.
And I love that about her.
So, I happily snatched her first book, "If You Have to Cry Go Outside," off the shelves during Borders going out of business sale.
This book is meant to be an empowering read for women of all sorts, especially those in business.
However, it's not really a how-to, as it includes several stories about Cutrone's life—how she came to be the "Mama Wolf" of her successful PR company, People's Revolution.
To my surprise and delight, Cutrone admitted to a prior life of drugs, homelessness, and even a job as a tarot card reader. And now, she's risen above it all, and is even a single mom.
Which brings to me to another point—why I enjoyed this book. Cutrone spoke my mind when she said that she wants women to understand that we don't need men to make us happy, instead, we need ourselves to make us happy.
If you want to get married, do it, she said. But if it's not for you, that doesn't mean you're less successful.
