Kelly always knew he wanted to be a novelist, but was afraid of that what if he is not able to earn much money through writing.

Clinton, who hosted the show “What Not To Wear,” over the span of 10 years, appeared in around 300 episodes. The way he hosted offered an authentic style and a sense of humor.
The thing which made this show unique was that whoever came on the show for a makeover was called because their family nominated them. Stacy London was the co-host with Kelly, who would do a makeover of the person who came on their show. The duo offered them 5,000 dollars to let the fashion consultants style them and throw their existing clothes. Around a million people watched the show every week. The world basically ended when Clinton confirmed that his co-star Stacy blocked him on Twitter last year. There was never really a complete explanation for the fallout, though Clinton said: “it really wasn’t that juicy” at the time. In turn, Stacy Instagrammed a whole thing about anger and forgiveness without really ever explaining why she’d blocked Clinton in the first place.
