Erin Kaplan Interview

You all know Erin Kaplan from MTV's The City and if you don't well, your missing out. She is the ELLE "It" girl we all have come to know & love. Erin, has done amazing things at 26 - making her the youngest Director of Public Relations ever at Elle Magazine. And she hasn't let her beyond famous face on The City get to her. She is seriously great at what she does all while being super down-to-earth. We LOVED getting to know Erin and couldn't wait to share our chat with you.
How did you get started at Elle?
I started at ELLE about 4 ½ yrs ago as a Marketing assistant and worked my way up.
What advice can you give about working in the fashion industry?
My best piece of advice would be to find a job that you’re passionate about. In any industry, really loving what you do will keep you motivated and inspired to do the best job you can.
What is your go-to outfit?
Anything black. When I moved to NY from CA I didn't own a single piece of black clothing…now; it’s almost all I wear! While I’m pretty basic when it comes to clothes I have a weakness for incredible shoes. I have definitely spent far more than I should on a great pair, but consider them all excellent investments!
What is it like walking a day in Erin's stilettos?
Ever-changing. The great thing about doing PR for a magazine, and especially for ELLE, is that every day is completely different than the one before. One day I’m focusing on the celebrity covergirl, the next fashion, beauty or features--sometimes everything at once. I also work closely with the editors on segments and interviews or events we’re throwing. Each day is never the same and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
How has your life changed now that you’re on The City? (especially knowing that everyone is TEAM ERIN!)
Is everyone Team Erin?! That’s so nice but I always feel as though it changes week to week…I definitely appreciate and am very grateful for the support! My life really hasn’t changed too drastically. My number one priority is and always will be doing the best job I can at ELLE. Everything else is secondary, so as long as I stay focused on my work I don’t think my life will change too much!
What is up next for you? Can we hope for another season of The City?
I’m not sure…I never in a million years thought that I would be on a television show so as much of a control freak as I am, I’ve really tried to embrace whatever comes next and expect the unexpected. As for another season of The City?...I hope so!

5 Things You Don't Know About Erin
1.) I have three brothers who never let me get away with much (anything!)—I definitely developed a thick skin early on.
2.) I interned at Saturday Night Live for two semesters in college—and still remember Jimmy Fallon’s coffee order.
3.) I knew that I wanted to live in New York City since I was in the 6th grade. Once I moved here for college, I never looked back.
4.) Contrary to what you see on the show, I am a pretty non-confrontational person.
5.) I read seven newspapers every single morning before work. Always in print, never online (NY Times, WSJ, NY Post, Daily News, USA Today, Newsday, WWD)

Lo Bosworth’s Post-‘Hills’ Plans

With the series finale of her reality show, The Hills, looming large on July 13, Lo Bosworth has already planned her next move. Yep, BFFs, Lo is sticking to what she knows best – TV!
“I’m transitioning into television hosting instead of reality TV,” the 23-year-old starlet told exclusively at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles July 7. “I have a show in development now – it’s a lifestyle show, so fingers crossed that it gets picked up!”
Additionally, Lo, who is currently promoting Nivea’s Goodbye Cellulite challenge, is launching her digital media company, the, on the same day as her show’s finale. “We’re talking about relationships, health and fitness, beauty and style. We’re really trying to create a community and have a conversation. I have a book coming out in January, also appropriately titled “The Lodown” and that is a relationship guide for girls,” she said.
But will Lo return to reality TV? It depends on the program. “I would NOT be on The Bachelorette – I have a boyfriend [lacrosse player Scott Hochstadt],” she said. “I’m done with the docu-soap thing. The Hills is over for me; I’m not going on any other reality shows. Dancing With the Stars really freaks me out. I would only do it for the challenge, to sort of prove myself wrong, to be brave enough to do it because it’s just terrifying to me. But that’s it – I’m moving on.”
With all the projects she has in the pipeline, it’s no wonder Lo is pooh-poohing appearing in the film adaptation of BFF (and current roommate) Lauren Conrad’s best-selling book, “LA Candy.”
“No, no, no, no! Absolutely not planning on it!” she laughed. Although the project is shrouded in mystery, Lo did let us in on one little secret…”We hoped that the [main character] would be played by an unknown – just like when we were all unknowns when we first started on Laguna Beach way back when. I think that’s the best way to go about doing it.”
