of cosmetic's at Sephora and had her book hit The New York Times Best Sellers
List, further cementing Kat as a brand unto herself. As her profile has risen, so
has the shops business and the pressure to succeed. The new season feels
similar yet is vastly different from previous years, even though Kat is once again
launching a new round of products at Sephora and writing yet another book,
everything is about to change. Enter new shop manager, Aubry Fisher, from
Rock of Love fame.

High Voltage. Of the third season Kat says, "this season feels like a new show to
me, new people, new drama, a lot of change. Of course I am focused on the
shop and my career, but I think the new season will deliver, to put it mildly. No

fans will see me fight the good fight."

Daniels, SVP Programming and Development. "We are breathing new life into a
series and brand we really believe in. Kat is a great talent in that she is

artist and burgeoning business woman."
