Intervju med Erin från The City

RC: Why do you think Joe is constantly defending Olivia's strengths as an editor?
EK: I think Joe really believes that she has great personal style and a good eye for fashion. I definitely don't disagree with him on that, but there's so much more to being an editor -- and I'm not sure she realizes that.
RC: You really rallied behind the photo of Fergie that ultimately made the cover –- what about that picture stood out to you over the one Joe liked?
EK: Both covers were incredible, so it would have been difficult to go wrong.
RC: You mentioned to us at the end of last season that you wanted to do a better job of controlling your facial expressions on the show. Is that still a conscious effort, and how is it going for you so far?
EK: It's not going too well! I seem to be making more facial expressions this season, which is pretty embarrassing! I actually think I make so many facial expressions to avoid saying something I'll regret.
RC: Regardless of all the Olivia nonsense, you seem to truly want what's best for the magazine. Do you think Olivia does as well?
EK: There are a few events coming up that make me think she doesn't, but I won't reveal. ... Just from what has aired so far, I think if she wanted what was best for the magazine she would have gone to Whitney's shoot like she was asked. It was her job that day, and it would have been the right thing to do, regardless of her personal feelings. I think we ALL have to do things sometimes that we wish we didn't -- it's just part of the job!
RC: Olivia has a friendship with the new fashion director, Alexis -- is that a good or bad thing?
EK: I think Alexis is amazing and a fantastic addition to ELLE, so if Olivia can learn from her, that's a GREAT thing!

Intervju med Erin Kaplan

Vad tycker Erin om Olivia, Roxy och Whitney. LÄS intervjun förstår ni inte så översätter jag den=)

Let’s talk about Olivia.

Great [laughing].
What was her first mistake?
I think that when you start anywhere you kind of want to embrace the people around you. When I was new, I wanted to get to know everyone in every department. I felt like she was focused on accessories and that was it. That’s not really how it is at a magazine or anywhere.
Despite her stint at Diane von Furstenberg, she doesn’t seem to have the goods to be a contributing editor at Elle. Why did Joe Zee hire her?
Well, I think Olivia has great personal style. He thought she could bring some of how she styled to the magazine. He obviously thought she was talented and had a good eye, so I think that’s why he offered her the job.
On the first two episodes, Olivia didn’t push hard enough on her projects. You noticed that, but Joe didn’t.
In Joe’s defense, on the first episode he didn’t have too much involvement. Anne Slowey did the "Today" show segment. He really wasn’t there. He didn’t get to see what happened in the accessories closet that day, and what happened at the show and after the show. On the second episode he was involved, but not to the extent that I was. I feel like I had to be his eyes and ears. He wasn’t around Olivia as much as I was. I wanted to fill him in on what was happening.
I’ve been pretty hard on Joe in my posts, but I have to admit I get a sadistic pleasure watching you fume when he’s complimenting Olivia. What’s going through your mind in those moments?
It’s hard. Obviously, Olivia and I don’t get along. I think at the end of the day if she does well, it’s going to benefit the magazine. Honestly, I would never wish for her to come back and fail, because that’s, one, more work for everyone else, and, two, it doesn’t make her look great and that represents the magazine, which reflects on everybody.

It’s clear there’s no love lost between you and Olivia. What can we expect going forward?
[Laughs] Well, you can definitely expect more conflicts. We go to Miami, which is interesting. I haven’t seen the episode, so I don’t know how they’re going to show it. We definitely have our ups and downs.
Last week, we saw Whitney start dating again. What do you think - Jay or Freddie?
I think they’re two completely opposite guys. I adore Whitney and she’s going to make the right decision. She’s very level-headed. She knows exactly what she wants. I’m kind of rooting for Freddie, though.
I’ve heard you say that you love Roxy?
I do. I really like Roxy. I think she’s very funny. She’s very self-deprecating. I met her long before the show. I definitely think she’s a good girl. She’s fun to be around. Yeah, I’m a fan of Roxy’s.
After watching her work at People’s Revolution, what if she and Olivia switched places? Would you mind working with her?
Oh my god. Um [laughing]. I would embrace working with Roxy. I think that Roxy is open to working with different types of people. [In this week’s episode], we did work together. I asked Roxy to help me out and she was game. Both Whitney and Roxy did everything that I asked. They had a great attitude. They both wanted to do what was best for the event that night. Yeah, absolutely I would like to work with Roxy.
