Shawn Knights is a cast member on Bravo TV’s hit series Chef Roble and Co. Shawn entertained the viewers and guests with his colorful character.

Natalie: Shawn, it has been forever! I am overjoyed that we are finally hanging out! What took us this long?

Shawn: I was so busy working two full time jobs, I barely had any time for myself.

Natalie: How is it possible that someone with a larger than life personality remains so quiet in the City of Boston?

Shawn: To be honest with you, people have always told me that my personality is larger than life even when I am introverted. I can have friends waiting for me inside of a restaurant walk in and for some reason people assume that I am a celebrity or someone of status. For a time it made me very uncomfortable, however I learned how to make it work for me now!

Natalie: It is a compliment, you were on the Chef Roble show on Bravo TV and you know how to make a grand entrance. My Tom Ford clients loved when I booked you to cater my events in Neiman Marcus Boston for my annual Lips and Boys Parties. Thank you for making yourself available for the first ever Lips and Boys Party in Boston! We made makeup history together! Until this day I still have clients that visit me and ask about the parties that occurred in 2013, 2014, and future parties. What is your secret to leaving an unforgettable lasting impression?

Shawn: There is no secret it’s really being authentic to who you really are as a human being and learning how to balance the scales when dealing with the public.

Natalie: You speak so fondly of NYC, what brought you here to Boston?

Shawn: I moved to Boston to take care of my mother but I miss New York dearly!

Natalie: What restaurants and nightlife venues do you like to frequent in New York City?

Shawn: This question has so many answers. I am not really fond of huge restaurants, I love small intimate places that focus on simple but complex food.

Natalie: Starring on the Chef Roble show on Bravo TV did you have any trepidations?

Shawn: None at all.

Natalie: What goes into starring on a reality television show?

Shawn: Reality shows are very complex and have several layers.

Natalie: When will you make your grand return to reality tv?

Shawn: Only the universe knows the answer. I really enjoyed the time that I had as a cast member on Bravo TV.

Natalie: Let’s talk about fashion! How would you describe your style?

Shawn: My style is very European with a little dash of urban flare.

Natalie: Who’s your favorite designer?

Shawn: Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani, who I had the extreme pleasure of meeting many years ago at his store on Madison Ave. Ted Baker, Canali, Paul Smith. All of the for many different reasons.

Natalie: When will we see you on television again?

Shawn: I will be back one day, I have been talking to one of my other Cast-mates about it.

Natalie: How can your fans get in touch with you?

Shawn: Shawn_Knights on twitter and Instagram.
