Kitson to Monaco: Let's Get Ready to Rumba

5/30/2008 7:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So maybe you thought that ol' Kelly Monaco dropped major coin for the dress she wore on at last week's "Dancing With the Stars" finale. Turns out, it's actually trendy Robertson shopping enclave Kitson that'll be paying the price.

Like most stores in L.A., Kitson loans out clothes to freeloader celebs as long as they come back damage-free within 48 hours. We hear the disco diva's peeps arrived at the store in a panic five hours before the finale, desperate to find something for her to wear. Per their agreement, the store loaded them up with $6,500 worth of free dresses.

Little problem: TMZ has learned that her manager returned most -- but not all -- of the clothing a week late, and not only that, the dresses were "completely ruined." Apparently Kel wore another one of the dresses to party it up on her birthday in Vegas. Kitson says the dresses are "filthy and definitely not in sellable condition." Furthermore, they claim Monaco's people have refused to pay for the damaged dresses.

A rep for Kelly did not return our call for comment.

These bitches who steal $hit even though they can afford to buy it make me physically ill. Entitlement mentality is the same in poverty and luxery...

What the TV network could not pay for a dress - she could have worn one of the old costumes from the show!! Kitson should have had her hold up a sign "I heart Kitson" or put the store logo on ner forehead

wtf    

Why is Kitson selling dirty clothes that have already been worn by a celeb. You know they don't wash them before they are put back on the rack. That is gross.

Who is Kelly Monaco?
Some old washed up porn star?
Sounds like her first pet and street name.

She plays Sam on General Hospital. Been on there for years. She once posed nude in Playboy. She was the first
woman to win Dancing with the Starts during the first show. Kristy just became the second woman to win.
Kitson should change their policies.

Kitson sells used clothing at regular price to customers? That is unhygenic and gross. Would you pay full price for something worn with B.O. and who knows where the clothes have been. Sick. I would not purchase clothing that has another person's fart smell.

wtf    

I wonder how often the employees take clothes home, wear them then just put them back on the shelves/racks selling them as "new" They obviously don't think there is anything wrong with it.

If it's true, that's really sleazy. Soap stars count on a fan base to survive. This might just come back bite Miss Monaco, as GH is as popular as DWTS and both are ABC shows which is her employer. Can't believe the rich/so-so famous get free things loaned to them and then can't even take care of them and/or have them dry-cleaned. Oh well, it takes a story like this to show someone's true colors. Beyond that, don't know why she returns to DWTS 'cause she never looks too pleased to be there. Like, you're so important and have elsewhere to be rather then live on the #1 at the moment? I think not.

My two cents    

Remind me to NEVER shop at Kitson again. Why should I pay full price on used clothing? This is an outrage.

You mean to tell me that they were gonna resell this dress at top dollar, if it had be returned the way they felt it should? I thought Kitson was high class, not the Salvation Army?
