BRING ON THE PAPARAZZI

curr_paris.jpgHooray for Fraser Ross. “Whos that?” you might ask. He’s the clever owner of the gigantic retail success Kitson on Robertson. Has anyone paused to ponder why celebrity studded Kitson is so incredibly successful – above the other cute but forgettable shops on the street. Kitson RULES for a good reason. Because Fraser LOVES publicity and has always courted the press. Countless stars have been photographed shopping at or leaving Kitson and they appear weekly in the celebrity mags. Fraser realized what a boon these pix were to his business and went into the photo business himself. He partnered up with a photo agency so now when he gets a famous shopper, Fraser can call his own fotog to take the picture. When it’s published Fraser not only enjoys the free publicity – he gets a cut of the money paid for the photo! It’s funny, the stores that chase photographers away and “protect” their celebrity shoppers don’t do nearly as well as Kitson. Steady Kitson customer Paris Hilton certainly isn’t complaining about paparazzi. So really, isn’t Fraser Ross even smarter than we thought?

    Janet, just found your site. I’ve enjoyed reading you for years.
    This looks like the new Hollywood. Kitson teamed up with photographers and stars organizing their own photo ops. Apparently, PR coverage is a whole new game now! Lucrative, too.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
