Cut From Her Own Cloth. Harlem born and bred Bevy Smith has always used her voice. The radio show host, Bravo, and Page Six TV television host, longtime fashion and advertising executive (for magazines like Vibe and Rolling Stone) and now, author, has long made her mark with her savvy way with words. Bevy Smith’s authenticity excites and inspires. The title of her first book, Bevelations, nods to her Sirius radio show on Andy Cohen’s Radio Andy. Published by Cohen’s new imprint, the book is part self-help, part teaching-people-how-to-build-their-personal-brand, part storytelling, and all about her quest for a creative life. Known for her no-nonsense point of view and direct way, Bevy has taken a bite out of life. She’s taken career risks, embraced change all while keeping her eye on her career- prize, and making time for the creative pursuits that are important to her. On this podcast Bevy shares stories from the fashion and publishing world, how Covid touched her life last year, how she broke into the media business, the importance of travel, dating, the 9 to 5 life, tales of struggle and perseverance, how her previous jobs have shaped her, stories from her impeccably written first book, and some items and places she loves.
“One of the best things about travel is that you get to see how other people live. When you're in such a myopic space, you believe that's the only way to go. When you get out into the world, you see that there are a lot of different ways to live.” - Bevy Smith
