Michelle Obama’’s hairstylist inks reality show dealJanuary 22nd, 2009 - 2:30 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Jan 22 (ANI): While many are hailing Michelle Obama as a style icon, her hair stylist, Johnny Wright, has signed a huge deal to star in a reality show.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Wright has inked a deal with 44 Blue - producer of Split Ends - to make a reality show.
Reports have revealed that Wright had styled Mrs. Obama’’s locks for the Democratic National Convention and her upcoming Vogue cover shoot as well.
“There aren”t many people of colour doing makeover and beauty,” The New York Daily News quoted 44 Blue executive vice president Stephanie Drachkovitch as saying.
She added: “We figured there’’s got to be somebody out there with a mainstream clientele, but brings a different point of view.”
Apart from the US First Lady, Wright also boasts a star clientele that includes Vivica A. Fox, Rebecca Gayheart, Lauren London and Candace Bushnell.
“There’’s a lot of hairstylists out there who do celebrities, but they can”t center a show,” said Drachkovitch.
And with Obamas being the biggest rage in the world, Drachkovitch is planning to pitch the idea to cable networks. (ANI)
