“If you’re more likely to tune into CNBC during your off hours, there’s a local element to Friends to Lovers? that might pique your interest: Westchester native and previous 914INC Wunderkind Kris Ruby is one of the show’s stars. Plus, one of the upcoming episodes (the show airs Monday nights at 10 pm) features some familiar Westchester sights. Ruby says she was so focused on building her PR firm (with good results; the 27-year-old is a leading on-air social media commentator) that she didn’t think much about a potential love match. Shooting a show about her private life has been challenging for the “all-business” Ruby. “It has definitely been good exposure for my business so more people on a national scale can see our social media and PR service offering. But doing the show was a tough decision for me to make… this was definitely outside of my comfort zone,” she explains. “Sharing anything about my personal life and exposing that side of my life felt like a huge risk.”
While at Westchester Magazine’s Burger and Beer Blast (Ruby Media Group was hired to increase social media buzz and engagement at the event), Ruby discovers some “digital compatibility” issues (yes, apparently, that is a thing) with Goldman.
She leaves us with this cliffhanger: “Will Alex support me at Burger Bash by posting selfies and using the hashtag we came up with? Or will he be anti-social-media at my event?”
