Bobbi Brown Calls Out Chelsa Skees Crowley Wife of CEO @ Foursquare

Bobbi Brown Calls Out Chelsa Skees Crowley Wife of CEO @ Foursquare

April 28, 2014

Chelsa Skees Website

Chelsa Skees Crowley’s attempt at the DIY fraudulent bib at the Boston Marathon last week appears not to be her first attempt at shall we say being unethically creative?  Taken directly from Ms. Skees Crowley’s site it would appear she’s still an employee at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics; however, that information is false.

Alexis Alvich from Bobbi Brown (PR) called me this morning to state that Chelsa Skees Crowley has not been an employee since November 2013, she worked there for six months as a freelancer.  

Bobbi Brown Response to Chelsa Skees Crowley final

Opps!  So this also confirms the tip from the other day that Chelsa Skees Crowley improperly stated her job description to the NY Times. (Thanks H!)

So let’s run Chelsa Skees Crowley’s latest actions against her former employer through The Sociopathic Business Model™:

The SBM with Logo final

-Falsely and incorrectly attaching herself to her former employer Bobbi Brown is manipulative and not recognizing the rights of others

-Views people as victims or accomplices (her former employer is now a victim from her careless and fraudulent activities)

-Pathological lying (marathon and her resume)

-Lack of shame, remorse or guilt (it’s still indicating she’s employed at Bobbi Brown and yet she is not)

-Lack of accountability


-Creates an unhappy work environment (only her former employer or co-workers can answer this one-or those in the race who obtained bibs legally)

-Her website is taking credit for work someone else is actively doing (she was taking credit for someone else’s number in the race)

-Her behavior has been unethical

-Her website is Chelsaskees (maiden name) and in some instances she goes by Chelsa Crowley (not uncommon but when added to the list it makes a compelling argument (at least for me).

So again each person reading this can apply (or not apply) the information to make decisions for themselves.  What I learned from this exercise is that I support Bobbi Brown and I would not want to work with or invest in any Chelsa Skees Crowley project. 

And note to Chelsa Skees Crowley it might be time to worry less about evening out your tan lines and time to update your website with proper employer information.

Phew! Someone finally found some time after DIY fraudulent bib making to update update their webpage with facts.  So she wasn’t an editor?  She wasn’t currently working there?  Tan lines are much more tolerable than lies.

  • Curious Threads

    I don’t know, I know a lot of people who don’t remember to update their websites, LinkedIn and other social media sites when they change jobs. I don’t find it odd that her website said she still worked at Bobbi Brown less than a year after she stopped working there. Of course what is problematic is that she misrepresented her role with the company. But let’s face it, she’s not the first and she won’t be the last. Plenty of people think that resume padding/inflation is totally acceptable. The only reason she’s getting so much attention/scrutiny is because she’s the wife of the CEO of a hot tech company and tech CEOs behaving questionably is a hot topic right now after Mozilla’s little debacle.

    I’ve been trying to put my finger on why her and her husband’s apologies seem so hollow. I think it’s because they don’t apologize for behaving offensively, they apologize *if* YOU were offended, as if being offended is your problem, which indicates that they fail to grasp the offensiveness of their actions. I also noticed that neither of them have taken down their marathon day Tweets, which seems a little tone deaf. On the other hand, I don’t know them. Maybe they really are sorry and they just don’t know how to apologize.

    Well, this was fun to read! I’d also like to report Chelsa Skees started a makeup line called Stowaway (how apropos) shortly after her illustrious “career” at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and, as part of her edited “collection” includes a product suspiciously similar to Bobbi’s cult-classic product, Pot Rouge. Chelsa’s version? “Rouge Pot”. The girl doesn’t even have the decency to give it a unique name! Pretty sure she just took Bobbi’s products and had a lab reverse engineer them. Wonder where she got the money to do that???
