Meet The Paparazzi Founders

Meet The Paparazzi Founders

Paparazzi Accessories is more about jewelry and accessories. It is about change. The founders believe in changing the way people look and feel. It believes in helping change people’s futures and lives. Through their $5 accessories, Paparazzi has been able to help make these changes happen and has changed the lives of thousands of consultants and many, many customers. The founders really have a passion when it comes to “inspiring dreams, empowering talents and reaching goals by sharing our products and the excitement of Paparazzi.” I have experienced this and see it every day with my own Paparazzi business.

Let’s take a few moment to meet out founders. 


Paparazzi Story

Here is the Paparazzi Story from their website:

When sisters Misty and Chani began selling jewelry, their original intent wasn't to begin a national phenomenon. "We just enjoyed showing people how to accessorize," explains Misty. But what began as a whim was clearly filling a need.

Women flocked to buy accessories that were trendy, but not too intimidating. Classic, but never boring. And best of all, incredibly affordable. At just $5 per piece, Paparazzi Accessories became an invitation to experiment with color, try a more daring style, and do it without risk of buyer's regret. Paparazzi made fashionable finds accessible for every outfit, for every age group, and for every sense of style. The company grew 900% in just six months.

Today, the concept of "accessibility" extends to the very mission of Paparazzi. Accessories are sold exclusively through Paparazzi Consultants, and anyone who wishes to sell the line can do it for themselves. The result is a flourishing business that empowers women and builds self-assurance with a fun financial future.

Paparazzi founders Misty and Trent Kirby, and Chani and Ryan Reeve, continue to expand the company with hands-on leadership and clear purpose. They individually design and source materials for Paparazzi products while working directly with manufacturing partners to create the fashion-forward results.

What I love most about being a Paparazzi Accessories consultant is the love and support we get from our founders, the staff at the Home Office and every single one of the consultants. We are truly a family that supports one another and wants to see everyone be the best they can be.

The Founders

The four founders of Paparazzi Accessories work hard to make their own dreams and the dreams of others come true. They truly live and love the Paparazzi mission statement. 


Misty Kirby

Misty loves just about any reason to party, especially if there is ice cream, decorations and balloons involved. She has a degree in broadcast journalism and always dreamed of being a TV anchor. It was no surprise the combining news of design trends with her passion for parties created the Paparazzi phenomenon. Misty takes a hands-on approach with the company, working on designing and creating new products. She also works hard interacting with Paparazzi Consultants across the country. In fact, last November I received a call from Misty thanking me for coming to the Paparazzi Home Office Open House. It was such a great pleasure to meet her there and to receive the call a few days later from her.

Trent Kirby

Trent is more of a finance guy and that has to do with the fact that he holds a degree in business finance. He has worked in private investments and started his own international import business. But he is not what you would expect from a finance guy. He is very laid back, yet very passionate about Paparazzi and training the Consultants. I have had the pleasure of meeting Trent three times now – once at the Grand Opening and twice not at Empower Me Pink (Orlando and Los Angeles). Just listening to him speak proves he loves what he does and wants to help others succeed.

Chani Reeve

Chani believes the best thing about the Paparazzi opportunity is the ability to be footloose and fancy free. She too is a mother and loves that Paparazzi allows consultants to live their own lives on their own schedule. Not someone else’s. She personally sees the benefits of being able to work and provide a powerful income stream for your family while still being able to attend field trips, birthday parties and play dates. Chani has a degree in Elementary Education, which she earned while cleaning houses. She uses her attention to detail to help organize the business as she is able to be with her kids. I love the fact that the founders take pride in their company and take the time to personally congratulate their consultants on their successes. I received a call from Chani back in April 2013 congratulating me on ranking up to Director. That was the call that showed me this was the right decision for me and gave me the motivation to keep going.

Ryan Reeve

Ryan, aka one of the Dorks from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dorks on Periscope, sometimes starts speaking another language when you get him chatting about electric transformers and toroidal inductors. He is also fluent in speaking the language of hard work. Ryan has a degree in business and online technologies, both of which have helped making all of Paparazzi’s dreams come true. He also loves to see Consultants reach new heights and succeed. He says it’s a feeling that is “electric.” I have had the pleasure to meet Ryan three different times – once at the open house and at two Empower Me Pinks (Tampa and Los Angeles). Just like the others, his passions shines through when he trains Consultants and talks about the business.

The founders and the Paparazzi story are just two of the reasons why it is so great to be a Consultant with this company. Everything from the staff at the home office to the amazing products and the family feel to the support you get as a Consultant are the reasons why I joined Paparazzi.

I would love to chat with you more about why I joined and how being a Consultant can benefit you. Just send me an email at or call/text me at (864) 303- 8748.
