On Sunday’s episode of Kendra, the former bunny didn’t seem too pleased about getting to know Nikki Pennie. Who is Pennie? She’s a stylist from the UK who is reportedly responsible for introducing HRH Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge to Issa (Pennie was, at one time, Issa’s PR director), whose dresses Catherine’s been wearing for years; the Duchess was most recently spotted wearing a purple Issa dress at an evening concert during her and Prince William‘s royal tour of Canada. Catherine’s royal blue dress on “Engagement Day” (November 16th, 2010) was also by Issa.
I can understand Kendra’s frustration towards her team for hiring someone who’s influenced the most famous woman in the world. That’s a lot of pressure to put on someone who considers booty shorts appropriate evening attire. Don’t try to tone Kendra down, because that goes against the natural order of things. Also, it seems that Pennie is trying to make a name for herself since moving to Los Angeles a few years ago. Watch out, Rachel Zoe. Pennie’s using the lethal weapon that is Kate Middleton to steal your thunder.
