    1 thought on “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You”

    1. A good friend recommended this book so I wanted to read it from cover to cover. And i wanted o love it I hated every minute of it I kept hoping the book would improve. I thought that I'd suddenly turn a corner with Kelly and realize that she had stopped being a self-indulgent, go against the grain just to create waves, name dropping, self important person. Sadly, that never happened and I breathed a huge sigh of relief when I finished the last page.The major theme through this book is to create [...]

    2. I bought this book after watching Kelly Cutrone's show on Bravo. I admired her tough, no BS attitude but also how she also managed to be endearing at the same time. She seemed like a good role-model so I was excited to read her book to learn more about her but I mainly was interested in her career advice. However the first half of the book with Cutrone's memoirs was a little tough to get through. Most of the time it seemed more like she was bragging rather than "telling it like it is (or was)" w [...]

    3. Sooooleave the burbs, do a ton of drugs, sex and booze it up in NYC, create your own religion, talk shit yet take none, don't cry at work and be true to your own dreams. ThereI just read the book to you. You're welcome.For the record, my mom kicked ass in the 70s in corporate America so her advice and guidance has been much more useful than anything I read here. BTWI had to read this for book club and I'd never heard of this woman prior to the selection.

    4. My boss gave me a chapter from this book when I was having a hard time seeing eye-to-eye with a co-worker, who also happens to have a strong workplace personality. I read it on the train and came in the next morning breathless and excited about what I had read. My enthusiasm scored me major points with the boss, and she lent me the entire book the same day.Cutrone is a bully. That's what really made me like this book, because - despite that - I like her. She's an unapologetic, vicious, caring, p [...]

    5. I decided to read this book because I've always had an interest in transitioning into publicity/PR and the book sounded like a great read for female professionals. I thought that, though I'm not necessarily interested in fashion, this would offer some solid career tips from someone that has seen it all. It did have a few tips here and there about being tough, but ultimately, it is titled and positioned incorrectly. It isn't about lessons for career women, but rather the author's memoir about how [...]

    6. Kelly Cutrone is the founder of People’s Revolution, a fashion PR firm based in New York City. I’ve been watching her show on Bravo, Kell On Earth, and I find her puzzling. Sometimes she comes across as a savvy, ballsy businesswoman, refusing to take any lip from anybody. But on the other hand, most of the time she appears to be erratic, flighty and more than a bit unhinged. I got her new book, hoping to learn more. I’m fascinated by anything relating to the fashion industry, so I thought [...]

    7. This book, which I read for my new book group, grew on me somewhat as I read. I'd never heard of the author or her company prior to borrowing the book. I can't relate to the author and her world, and I didn't find her writing (co-writing?) style very polished. However, there were some nuggets of wisdom and some relate-able areas. I thought the chapter on branding yourself was right-on, and I had to chuckle at the section on Donald Trump, given his current doings. I appreciate her passion. Some o [...]

    8. I thought this book was total crap. Kelly is not as smart as she thinks she is, and her "advice" -- like making her assistants wait until after everyone else has finished eating to have the leftovers-- is terrible. It's like "how to be a mean girl boss 101." She has a lot of half-baked spiritual beliefs, which are cobbled together from yoga, psychic readings, half-understood Native American beliefs, and watered-down second wave feminism. I found this book annoying, repetitive, and mostly just st [...]

    9. Kelly Cutrone has appeared on the The Hills, The City and her own series Kell on Earth. She also runs People’s Evolution. If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You surprised me. I didn’t expect much but I really enjoyed some of the key messages of the book:1. Believe in Yourself 2. Find and listen to your inner voice 3. Focus on building a Tribe 4. Work hard 5. Give back Cutrone is unapologetic about the need to work hard and pay your dues to the extent that [...]

    10. For the first half of this book, I planned to give it two stars at most. I was annoyed that Cutrone said she wasn't really that smart (you don't accomplish what she's accomplished by NOT being smart, even if it's not necessarily book smarts), and I was REALLY annoyed at the amount of time dedicated to her spiritual awakening (while reeling from drugs) and all the talk of the Universal Goddess and her spiritual guide. That's just not my thing.But then came the focal point of the book: the chapter [...]

    11. I debated for a while about getting this book, but I'm so glad I did. When I first heard about this and eventually picked it up, I was expecting a how-to guide on succeeding in the world of business/PR/fashion, which are all ares of interest for me, especially the business and PR, so I bough it. I was a bit disappointed at the very beginning because she explicitly states that this is not a book on how to be a smart business woman. I thought, "well great, there goes $15". I kept reading anyway de [...]

    12. Looking forward to this book for some time, I finally decided to cough up the twenty two dollars and get a hard copy. Ended up being disappointed with her less then professional advice, I felt as if this book were more of a memoir about things I wouldn't be comfortable bragging about. The quotes and snippets I'd read before purchasing the book would have been enough (and less of a waste of my time, and money!) I agree with pursuing your dreams and working hard, but to say that you can show up in [...]

    13. This book comes across exactly like Kelly Cutrone, or what one would think Kelly Cutrone would come across in her book. Direct, self absorbed, and full of cliches. She grated on my nerves throughout the book, in fact I had to really push myself to finish without rolling my eyes every other chapter! Granted, some of the cliches were well said but these were few and far between the rest of the book.

    14. I'd say this review is pretty spoiler heavy. I guess.I didn't know anything about Kelly Cutrone before reading this book. Okay, I knew a little, but only what had been told to me from watching her on Dr. Phil.But, I knew nothing about this book going in. I thought it might be about tips for women going into the "man's workplace" or some crap like that. Similar to the book, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office. So, I went expecting the same feelings I had after reading Nice Girls Don't Get the [...]

    15. I have always been a fan of "The Hills," and then Whitney Port's spinoff "The City." One of the characters who I loved the most was Kelly Cutrone. Her tell-it-like-it-is attitude and being a smart business woman was two of the things that I loved about her the most. It even made me love her even more when I started watching her Bravo show "Kell on Earth," and I found out that she was a single mother. Being a single mother who has her own business, I knew that this was a book that had to be on my [...]

    16. Reading this book is like being unexpectedly invited to the It party of the season and somehow finding yourself in conversation with the It Girl of the party, the one everyone had raved about. During the conversation, the It Girl monopolizes most of the conversation, and you nod along and don't dare interject because what could you possibly have to say to top her stories of being part of the NYC 1980's scene? As she then goes on about her spirituality you start to wonder if she's high or drunk, [...]

    17. Kelly Cutrone, as a judge on America's Next Top model, comes across a nasty piece of work. Sometimes her honesty is refreshing, but I think there's a fine line between refreshing and ice cold. She's not above taking a cheap shot in the pursuit of wit, and many of her comments have left a bad taste in my mouth.So I don't know what made me think I would feel differently after reading her memoirs. I think the title grabbed me, and I wanted to be proven wrong; maybe there's something I'm missing abo [...]

    18. I actually read this book in 2 sittings. I picked it up at the beginning of September, read just slightly less than half I believe, thought it was stupid and entitled (oh my life has been so hard, but I've basically been given every opportunity and gone through every obstacle) Ugh. And the section on her religion really did me in. I can't stand hearing about someone's new -agey religion and how much it changes and affects their daily lives (heck I don't want to hear about established religion ei [...]

    19. If You Have To Cry Go Outside by Kelly Cutrone tells the story of Kelly Cutrone’s rise to the top of the fashion PR world. Filled with tid-bits of advice, Cutrone tells a raw and unedited tale of hardships, partying, hard work and finally success.This book combines personal stories with professional advice. The mix of personal and professional makes for an insightful and entertaining read.Think Cutrone was always a power bitch? Think again. Cutrone went through a serious struggle before she go [...]

    20. When I started watching "Kell on Earth" I was totally thinking that Kelly was my soul sister. She is the ballsy, in-your face New Yorker that I aspire to be while in New York (especially on subways and other places where assertiveness is required). Although I was expecting more of a tell-all from Kelly, I wasn't completely surprised that the PR Queen was strategic about the details of her personal life.This book read as a series of career tips for her main audience-young girls aspiring to get in [...]

    21. From seeing Kelly Cutrone on the hills, I love her. Her no BS, Smart-ass attitude is greatough at times, i thought it displayed some inner insecurity or weakness, it was usually for the better and I really fell in love with her. None of this translates into the book which I definitely tried very hard to read but couldn't even bring myself to finish. The book basically showed that she's self obsessed and only wanted to name drop and constantly portray herself as a martyr that has come from the bo [...]

    22. This book is about success, fashion PR C.E.O, Kelly Cutrone. The book talks about how to get started in PR business. It also talks about her early life and how to survive in NYC. The book has tips and tricks on how to get into fashion. The book is also about the people she met during her journey to being top PR company and how to keep friends and family close.I can make a text to self connection. I actually know the author! We have been really close fiends ever since I was 7. She has brought me [...]

    23. I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a quick read, but definitely a book with a ton of information that can be used for anyone, even if you don't have a future in fashion, like me. She's definitely not the type of woman, nor author, to sugarcoat anything. When you're reading, you're reading the truth - about love, work, and life in general. According to Kelly, we're raised in a Disney type of world, where the woman waits for her prince charming to come and rescue her. It's not [...]

    24. ‘B*tch: a reflection of people’s lack of creativity & inability to acknowledge & embrace a powerful woman; a woman who won’t comply’Have you happened to read Kelly Cutrone’s new book, 'If You Have to Cry, Go Outside?' Because I just finished it. The premise was all about personal experiences, funny anecdotes, embarrassing mistakes and a call for female empowerment. Some of it made me giggle see belowEmpowered women can’t wear wife-beaters? Guess I’m out. However, some of [...]

    25. this came at the perfect point in my life. i don't know how to explain it. it's very bare bones advice for life, but here's the thing - there is so much wisdom in it. at least for someone like me. there were so many things that resonated with me, especially right now. for example, the mantra of, you are not what you do. i can't tell you what a reassurance that is for me right now. the job i have is simply to pay the bills, and sometimes i worry that i'll never get to grad school, never get to be [...]

    26. If you need motivation, explanation or just insight this is the perfect book. Kelly Cutrone is one of the most talented and amazing people I have ever read about. While this book is not as glamorous as many people have the impression of what Kelly does as glam, she has been through everything to get there. While things sound horrific at times there is a lesson to be learned about ever encounter and event. This not only motivated me to purse what I want to do with my life, it helped me to take my [...]

    27. Yikes, this book is poorly written garbage. I have a soft spot for the smart, snarky, and driven author, so I was disappointed. Kelly Cutrone feels the need to constantly remind the reader how thin she used to be and how rich and famous she is now. Bits and pieces of this book may be of interest to a young woman wanting a career in fashion (fully extend your arm to separate a crowd of people, a black bodysuit goes with everything, don't roll your eyes at work, etc.)but the vast majority of it is [...]

    28. This book is FANTASTIC. I'm long overdue in reading it, and I loved every single page for Cutrone's honesty, wisdom and no-holds-barred approach to building a strong career and internal foundation. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a motivational read about life and business that comes from someone living her own path with her fair share of major traumas ("deaths" as she calls them). Not just for women either

    29. I saw Kelly Cutrone on Dr. Phil's show. I knew nothing about her until then, and even after seeing her on the show, I wasn't moved to buy her book until I saw it in a bookstore. After reading the flyleaf, I purchased the book, and I am enjoying it. However, I expected it to be more about lessons she's learned from her job as a publicist than a personal history. Nevertheless, it is a good read.

    30. This book surprised me. Not because it was terribly well-written or life changing, but it does have some great advice for women. Especially those who aspire to be entrepreneurs or who hope to carve their own less-traditional path in life. I didn't agree with everything she said, but there are some useful tips for any woman who wants to succeed, even if they are told through the eyes of someone who holds a very sure and high opinion of herself.
