Kim Kardashian Bids Adieu to Longtime Publicist to Start Afresh with New Representative
PMK*BNC publicist Jill Fritzo, who represents the entire Kardashian family, was reportedly let go by Kardashian, 32, and replaced with Slate PR co-founder, Ina Treciokas. The new mom is reportedly desperate to rebrand after allegedly being advised to do so by West, 36. “Kim wants to set herself apart from the Kardashian p.r. machine and Kanye West advised her to build her own team,” a source told the New York Post’s Page Six . Fritzo is still said to be representing the other Kardashian family members. In recent months Kardashian, who is notorious for embracing the paparazzi, has uncharacteristically kept a low profile and sources claim that this is a part of a plan to change her image. The E! Star recently dyed her brunette locks after West allegedly recommended a new look. “Kanye has big plans to totally revamp Kim’s whole life. He is specific in what he wants her to look like and dress like and she’s happily going along with the plan now,” a source told RadarOnline.com . Like us on Facebook “There are more big changes planned and it seems like Kim is totally on board with everything Kanye wants,” the source continued adding “She feels like she is becoming more sophisticated by following his advice.” Kardashian, whose trademark long, dark locks helped form her image, has been photographed in recent weeks wearing attire that is far more conservative in contrast to her pre-baby days. While initially there were reservations, the reality star is now said to be happy to make drastic changes to her public image after giving birth in June. “Kim really didn’t like it when Kanye first started to take over her whole life, she felt like he was criticizing her, but now she’s happy with how she sees herself changing,” the source explained. “Ever since she had baby North she’s been trying to conform to what Kanye wants, like staying out of the public eye and getting a makeover to look more glamorous, and she likes the results,” the source added.
She took this step after dumping the longtime family PR Jill Fritzo. Jill Fritzo will be taking care of the rest of the Kardashian family’s PR which is going through a rough patch. Kim’s new representative is Ina Treciokas, who is also employed by Woody Harrelson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Owen Wilson, Justin Theroux and Liev Shreiber. She is the one who co-founded Slate PR.

Last year, Fritzo, who is from PMK*BNC, was at number 18th position on Business Insider’s list of Hollywood’s most powerful publicists. But, her new hire came in fifth place on the very same list, as reported by Daily Mail. Does this mean she will have an edge in terms of media publicity? After giving birth to North, Kim has not been frequent with press conferences or photo shoots. In May, she told The Times Magazine that she does not want her daughter North West to appear on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” “I don’t think so. Not as of right now,” she said stating that Kanye might not be keen on this.
Coming to confirm speculation that Kanye West is giving her career advice is a report that shes dumped her PR team at his recommendation. Kim and the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan are managed by their mother, Kris Jenner, who also gets to pick the girls PR team that represents them in relation to the media and other business partners. According to Page Six , Kim is taking the first steps towards breaking free of her mother and shes doing so by listening to what her boyfriend Kanye West has to say on the matter. Shes hired a new publicist to distance herself from the family melodrama, the report argues. The drama would be the Lamar Odom drug scandal, which sees the star accused of being addicted to crack cocaine. So far, no one from camp Kardashian has said anything on the matter. Were told the new mother has moved on from PMK*BNCs Jill Fritzo, who has tirelessly represented the entire Kardashian clan for years, to Sarah Jessica Parkers publicist, Slate PR co-founder Ina Treciokas. She also represents Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, Liev Schreiber and Justin Theroux. Treciokas firm also reps Jennifer Aniston, Page Six reports. It was Kanyes idea to make the move. If one is to believe reports online, hes been working hard to get Kim to distance herself from the Kardashian brand, starting with her look and the way she handles herself in the media. Kim wants to set herself apart from the Kardashian PR machine, and Kanye West advised her to build her own team, an insider dishes. If we didnt know better, wed say Kim is getting ready to go A-list: and severing some connections with her family would be just the thing to get her there and buy her some much-needed credibility.
