ERECIA: How are you doing today?
KARLIE REDD: I’m wonderful.
ERECIA: That’s good. I know you’re busy, so many things are happening. You launched your beauty line in 2013. Can you give us a little more information about your beauty line from the anticipated Summer launch of KR Cosmetics?
KARLIE REDD: Absolutely. We did a soft launch in December 2013 for lip glosses and lipsticks and we’re are looking to launch full line of KR Cosmetics this year.
ERECIA: Is it going to be in California and New York as well?
KARLIE REDD: It will be in New York, soon. Coming soon! Yeah we’re definitely going to be going International. We started off in Atlanta because that’s where I live and that’s where Loving Hip Hop is as well.
ERECIA: Yeah totally makes sense. Now, what was your inspiration for this line?
KARLIE REDD: Well, everyone says, “hey, you know, you’re beautiful, and I wanted to get with a minority company. There’s not enough products for us, for our face that we can wear and complement our skin. You know what I mean? We can’t find the right color, and I’ve walked into many malls and I’ve been like, “that’s not the right color for me. I can’t find enough products” So that’s why I started my beauty line.
ERECIA: So how did you get cast for Love and Hip Hop Atlanta?
KARLIE REDD: First of all, not many people know this, but I was already doing VH1 reality shows before Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. I did Scream Queens. I don’t know if you remember Scream Queens, I was on season 2. We were ten ladies; we all lived in a house competing for the role of Saw lady. Yeah many people don’t know I was already doing VH1 reality shows. So it was about what was going on with me and my music, and I interviewed with Mona Scott Young about my personality, and I love Mona. I talked to her, and she’s definitely that lady that you want to look up to. She has a creative mind. I interviewed with her, I gave her everything, and she liked it and next thing you know I’m on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.
