PR Pitbull Kelly Cutrone: Lauren Conrad Is 'A Genius'

"I think Lauren [Conrad] is a genius. She got a great opportunity and she did a great job with it. She really just did everything really right, didn’t she? She kept it together. She didn’t run anybody over. She didn’t hurt anybody. She didn’t end up in jail. She didn’t beat up any photographers. And she looked cute.

We were never friends. She worked for me and now she doesn’t. Like most people who work for me, I don’t really stay in touch with her. But it’s not for any other reason than we were never BFFs, as the girls would say."
