Project Runway, Season 9 Finale Part 1

Well, before we start, an important news flash, it was reported today that the premiere of Project Runway All-Stars has been delayed and it will now air sometime in 2012.  No reason has been given and next in line to air is Project Accessory which debuts next Thursday night after the part two of the Project Runway finale.  So I’m a little bummed but I’m also a little relieved; I’ll get a nice long PR break for a couple of months.  I’m just scared that when All-Stars ends, a new season of the regular show will kick in.  Simmer down now!  (Update: the Cardinals just lost Game 2, but it’s cool…I will go on..)
-Heidi makes a funky smiling gesture…don’t want to see that again…only 3 go on to Fashion Week yada-yada-yada…$9,000 to create a 10 look collection…and here’s the Gunn…the home visits, I can’t wait!…packing up to go leave montage…zzzzzzz
-“3 weeks later”…Gunn goes to Kimberly’s first…what a cute blue studio!…Kimberly’s inspiration is Brooklyn then and now, cool concept…”Wow them!”…let’s eat!, oh wait, drink!…Kimberly is inspired by her late mother….she wants to be the first African-American winner…we’ll see…
-Trinidad????…visit to Anya…and Tim is wearing the same suit…one of Anya’s brothers is named “Yves”…fate?…more alcohol!…Tabago, Trinidad’s sister island, is Anya’s inspiration…all she has to show Tim is fabric, no clothes???…are we surprised?…D’oh!  Anya “hasn’t been able to draw a new shape”…huh?…and Tim reminds her she can’t have any help, hmmmm?…
-Back to NYC to check in with Viktor…Tim loves his gray suits!…Viktor’s inspiration is Mexico…man, all of these designers have suffered a major loss…so sad…Tim “Knock their effing socks off!”…we meet Viktor’s boyfriend David, awww!…beverage of choice is water…Tim moves onto Queens to check in with Josh…(dark suit this time)…we meet Josh’s sister…”sports!?!?”…he had a lot of “track and field scholarship” offers…well…Josh is also lagging behind in garment creation…crazy prints!…”sherbert-y”…he’s giving Tim fits…”where’s the sex??, this looks like ‘Farmer in the Dell'”…oh boy…
-Well, normal routine, the designers are all back in NYC for Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week…I must say, the penthouse they are staying in is the best looking I’ve seen on the show; big outdoor space…champagne bitches!…
-And the garments are revealed…let the judgement begin…Final challenge, create a 3-look mini collection…Viktor has the strongest pieces…Anya’s are too basic…Josh is having a mini-meltdown…Kimberly needs cohesion…no wow factor with Anya, and she’s losing her confidence…
-Everyone but Viktor is tweaking their collections…if I had to bet right now, and I don’t know the outcome; I stayed off Twitter and I focused on the ballgame…I would bet either Josh or Anya doesn’t make it to Fashion Week…we’ll see…Anya is frantically sewing…Kimberly is switching things up…aww, Viktor used the term “fierce”…
-Runway show…no guest judge…Viktor: lots of different textures, pretty fierce…Anya: too safe, not cohesive enough…Kimberly: oh, not as good as I thought it would be, and the cohesion is a little off…Josh: not terrible, a little wacky, and he held back on the crazy prints…
-First up, Anya…Nina and Heidi are sold on her dress, they hate the bathing suit and the gown, “unfinished” Michael-“it looks tortured”…styling is too old…she hasn’t fully embraced her roots…Kimberly…Michael likes it, too many accessories…”club foot?”, Heidi hates the “bubble butt” skirt, I agree…maybe she didn’t make the right choices…Viktor…who knew styling would be such a sticking point?…Heidi tries on Viktor’s jacket…he’s too “tricky”, he needs to edit big time…Josh…again, the judges are harping on styling…ooh, the back of Josh’s gown, not good!…edit!…
-So who’s out?…it’s a toss-up with the exception of Viktor…Josh makes it!!!!  Viktor, yep! Damn, I hope they don’t pull the “we’re going with all 4 after all” crap!…
AUF’ED: NO ONE!!!!…I knew it!…I hate when they do this…GRRRRRR!…Josh is pissed!
*Next week: Finale Part Deux*

Project Runway, Season 9, Episode 9 (Glam Nation invades)

Yes friends, Adam Lambert will be a guest judge tonight!…the challenge?…design menswear, specifically for one of the new “hip” rock bands on the scene: The Sheepdogs…the band that beat out 15 other hopefuls to land a Rolling Stone cover, where’s Dr. Hook when you need them?let’s carry on…
-Well, real time it is…damn DVR!…Josh is in an apartment by himself????…Olivier’s accent makes me want to hit things…
-“Image is everything.”…yeah yeah, blah-blah-blah…by the way, I let my Rolling Stone subscription lapse, oh well…Teams of 4…2 teams in other words…Laura Kathleen and Bert are together again, and Anthony Ryan…oh boy…the thought of menswear is scaring the designers…wow this band is really retro, kind of played out if you ask me…and they are Canadian, haaaaaaaaaa!…Leot????…Olivier says he’s comfortable with designing menswear…each designer is responsible for a member of the band…cohesion? not necessarily…
-Team names again?…Viktor, Josh, Olivier, and Kimberly are “Team Untitled” and I don’t know why but Anya, LK, Bert, and Anthony Ryan are…”Team Harmony”…oh the irony…Mood montage…
-Tim yelling at Olivier is stressing him out…butch up honey!…Bert helps LK pay for her materials…Kimberly is singing The Sheepdogs’ song…singing it better I might add…
*My DVR calculations were incorrect, thus because I’m recording The X-Factor, I can’t record The Office and watch PR, I’m not happy, but the thought of Adam Lambert sticking it to these designers is making me smile*

(By the way, here are The Sheepdogs, why is the one dude NOT wearing his shades?)
– OOH, quick promo for Project Runway All-Stars…I just half of Josh’s ass!…he’s heard of waxing right?…”you remember Peter Butler?”…boring hair consultation montages ahead…like these guys use product, bitch please!
-Brief shot of ambulance, everyone is fine…maybe we’ll see some jeggings!…how often do they make jeans??…Gunn check…Leot, that’s the one in pic sans shades…Tim-“Anya is a master of prints.” Anthony Ryan now has a mohawk, all rock and roll!…Bert’s jeans look really flamey…he uses the term “blouse”…whoa…this could be his time to go?

(This how angry I am about my DVR screw-up!)
-LEOT!!!…what a weird name; I blame Canada….Anya has loaned Kimberly fabric, will she regret it?…Josh “I primarily sell to gay men”…DOP!…Olivier has chosen a feminine pattern for the singer’s shirt…and he’s facing time management issues, again…maybe he will gone…There you go Bert, Deep Purple!…
-Olivier is worried he didn’t get the right sizing; the dress forms are not men…duh!…Kimberly is working up some womanly-looking stuff…Olivier’s pants are atrocious, he’s in trouble…he doesn’t even know how pants are sized…
-Pow-wow at Atlas…first the girls…Anya and Kimberly will have time management issues…the guys, we’re still talking about Olivier…he’s gotta be gone!
*There’s another GOP debate going on; they just don’t schedule these on a good night for me*
-Let the last-minute panic attacks begin!…oh, instead of a runway show, the band will play one song in each of the team’s designs in front of the judges…I’m seeing a lot of fringe; too predictable…Bert’s tie-dyed shirt, oh lord!…Olivier’s client, Ewan-the lead singer, is patiently waiting in his underwear; I think we’ll see some busted seams…Kimberly’s is awful, Bert “it looks like things they were in fast-food restaurants” he didn’t mention circa 1975…think an old Burger King uniform…

(Let’s hope Lambert isn’t this vicious!)
-Runway, er stage time…oh Heidi, you are so not rock and roll!…ADAM LAMBERT!…okay…
-Team Harmony…Anthony Ryan’s is the only one that looks tolerable…the rest look like daishikis (sp?)…I’m guessing to Bert, “now” is 1992?…Team Untitled…I hate to say this, but their looks almost look exactly the same and this song sucks!…I mean yeah, they are going for a 70s look, but are these looks too literal?…Olivier is “not worried”, okay…
-I have a feeling Lambert will pick up some of the slack with Michael’s zingers…Team Harmony is up first for judgement…Nina said the looks are too “literal”…are we in sync?…LK scores with Leot’s red jeans…ooh, Nina does not like…Bert…why did Ewan go with pigtail braids?…well the judges are sold, on the look AND the pigtails…Anya…Nina-Sam looks like “Pocahontas”, pants are busting at the seams…Michael-“reggae Jesus”…Adam “8th grade production of Hair”…Anthony Ryan…Ryan???…nice print, Michael “Golden Girl goes rock n roll” Nina “woman’s blouse”…
-Team Untitled…Ewan/Olivier…”boring” Heidi “dad jeans”…Nina “too feminine”…oh, they are calling him out on his unfinished shirt…Sam/Kimberly…Michael “Peter Brady at an autumn harvest”, Nina “old man’s pajamas” Adam “Scooby-Doo where are you?” Heidi “forest elf”…Leot/Viktor…judges like the jacket, it looks expensive…his jeans fit…Ryan/Josh…man, he does look like Jesus!…Heidi loves the “zipper in the crotch”…

(I think this says it all.)
-And now…Bert is safe, Viktor is the winner!…LK is safe, Josh is safe, Anthony Ryan is safe, and Anya is safe?!?
-AUF’ed: OLIVIER!!!!!…finally…he was too dainty…
**Next week: “look to the past” and Anya loses her money and Michael screams!**

Project Runway Season 9, Episode 4 (Wow, I’m Starting Late!)

Yep, tonight’s episode is ALL about designing something for longtime judge Nina Garcia, UGH!  I will get through it, I will get through it, I will get through it.
One other note, I’ve recently joined a regular Thursday night trivia team, so I may never watch PR in real time, but I’m committed to bringing you my weekly rants, so enough about me…
-Becky misses Fallene, but she gave Julie “a fabulous haircut”, ????…meanwhile, in the boys apartment, “bring the bald guy back!” is written on the chalkboard, alluding to the absence of Josh Christensen; Bryce has “to bring it” in the next challenge…little does he know…
-The reveal of Nina as the “client” gets a mixed response, mostly suppressed terror, they have to design a day look that transitions to evening…Nina has a lot of dislikes, this will make it very interesting, the winner will win a taxi cab ad and he/she will be featured in Marie Claire, oh really?
-Will we see color? Maybe, but Nina doesn’t like loud looks….each designer gets a Nina consultation, montage alert!…tailoring, pants, blouses, all up for grabs, but nothing “dated” as in Cecilia’s looks “a little Dynasty“, oh boy!
(Oh why can’t we just see Nina in her regular role…next, the workroom.)
-TIM!…off to Mood…”don’t be boring!”…but it wouldn’t be a Project Runway episode if something didn’t bore Nina…Cecilia is having trouble finding affordable fabrics, a sign she may be in trouble or in the bottom….
-Anya and Josh M. “back together”…that sounds about right…Julie was a bartender, then went to design school; she’s a wild card for sure…fingers are being pointed at Becky, she and Anthony Ryan have the same fabric, he’s hating on it…Cecilia’s fabric under the light looks terrible…Viktor prefers to work with muslin on the form rather than stick fabric on it…Nina enters…and the outfit she has on is not great, no wonder she needs help…Danielle is her first victim, there’s a lot of “nos” going around…Anya’s fabric is a risk and Nina asks if there’s a plan b, there is not…
(There aren’t many diverse pictures of Nina…this was about the best I could do, not a good look for her…)
-Anya is not panicking, but I fear, the bottom…the Anthony Ryan/Becky fabric battle continues, who saw it first? Who cares?…Lauren Kathleen “Christmas green!” as Nina says…Cecilia’s fabrics look really bad, Nina, “sad”…no plan b either…Kimberly has gold and navy colors, Nina “prison jumper” ouch!…I have a feeling some these same critiques will be said on the runway…winner gets editorial in Marie Claire (or as Nina says, “Mary Claire”)…Anya is going to dye her fabric, now the risk factor has grown by leaps and bounds…we see AR’s fiance’ Matthew…he looks young…they are discussing getting married in NY, you can now boys, it’s legal!…model fitting montage–yawn!…Julie is being featured a lot, she’s either in the top or bottom…she doesn’t sew much…
(“Is that glue?”–Tim)
-I dig Anya’s Beyond Thunderdome hairdo…Tim is searching for the designers, he’s “sweating through his suit” looking at the amount of work that’s unfinished…oh lord, Cecilia’s is a hot mess and she doesn’t care what happens, she’s already accepting defeat…other designers are considering helping Anya, namely LK, is that cheating?…we’ll see…Tim is rushing and panicking…just another runway day.
(Could Nina rock this?)
-Runway time…guest judges, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire, Joanna Coles (one of your judges on the upcoming All-Stars edition), and actress Kerry Washington…
-Josh M.-like, a little risky…Bert-boring…Olivier, totally Nina…AR, it’s nice, but how will Becky’s same fabric look?…oh hers is next…oh dear…Kimberly, it’s good, who knows?…Cecilia, UGLY!…Anya, eh, it looks finished…Danielle, boring…Julie, well-made, but a little wacky-looking…Bryce, HEM issue!…Laura Kathleen, very good…Viktor, good, but I need more color…Becky and Anthony are both safe!…and so is Bryce’s glaring hem…
-Nina likes Viktor’s, “versatility”…not in love with Julie’s, big shock, Michael “housecoat”…Joanna “Nina is asking to be fired if she showed up in this”…Cecilia…bad fabric, bad colors, not a good daytime look…Kimberly’s is good, and it’s liked by the panel…Nina is “amazed” at Anya’s design…will someone speak up about LK helping her?…Panel is bored with Danielle’s, Michael, “all she’s missing is the big white belt.”…Viktor has decided NOT to expose Anya’s assistance…
(“Who will be auf’ed?, wait and see.”)
-The winner is…Kimberly!…in: Viktor, Anya, Danielle…Julie and Cecilia are in the bottom…the magic of editing made this possible…Auf’ed: JULIE, quirky old thing…Cecilia dodged a huge bullet!
-Next week: a track, a running track, Olivier goes down!…thus another team challenge…good night!

Project Runway Season 9 Premiere (Live-ish)

As usual, with my past PR blogs, I will watch and type, but I will NOT time-stamp since I may not watch every episode live….I’m ready, let’s see if I can remember anyone’s name after the first five minutes.
-9 seasons?!? I can’t believe it….back in NYC! 20 designers are there, but only 16 will make it to the second the episode, sad huh?
-I don’t believe the Mormon guy/Christopher is straight, but I’ll roll with it….everyone is scurrying to get ready to be shot down by Nina and Michael, yep, they’re back too…this is essentially like the American Idol auditions, only with clothes…Heidi tries something on, I guess Bryce Black is in…
-Here’s uh, former Miss Trinidad and Tobago Anya, who says she only learned sewing “4 months ago”…huh???…Tim is “horrified”, the question is, can she execute the challenges by herself?..
-Becky Ross was in a religious cult, no really!…Why did Heidi just sing?…it evoked memories of this:
**OH JESUS, too many designers, I can’t keep up yet, though I have a feeling of who will be there…my 2 KY reps are safe, they gotta be….
-There will be MANY gay boys this season, it may or may not rule…”Nina is hot!”-Rafael (OH GOD!)
-Bert is the old guy, and we know how PR loves old guys….like Vincent…
-Okay, Bert lost his partner to AIDS and became alcoholic and he designed with Halston, wow, let me take you back to 1988, we’ll see.
-The guy who survived testicular cancer, Anthony Ryan, is okay…Jesus, I’m so behind…
^Final casting announcement time!^
I guess it will be easier if I reveal the names of those NOT making it through…David Chum, GUNNAR DEATHERAGE (OOOPS!), well there goes the KY representative out the window, damnit!, Amanda Perna, and Serena Da Conceciao, who tried out 10 years ago, well…shit!!!!…that means miss WKU, Laura Kathleen Planck better bring it!
-The designers check into the Atlas, ah memories…they keep calling Laura “Barbie” (girl, she better hang around for more than one episode, since Gunnar let me down)…
-5:00am…Tim is waking everyone up, it’s amazing how that man gets himself together at such an early hour…”a come as you are” party, they have to bring one sheet…CHEDDAR BISCUITS!
-The Parsons work room…yay!…create a design from the one sheet and whatever you are wearing…oooooh…what if someone was sleeping naked????…I don’t think the producers are THAT stupid.
-I hate to say this, but I don’t really wear pajamas…Cecilia is this season’s loose cannon loudmouth, trouble-maker, as evidence by the casting special…Miss “4 months of sewing” Ayna may have trouble…
(The Cat’s Pajamas, get it?)
-Oh I just noticed, they are all wearing scrubs…Aynade wants to make pants, because, she’s never made pants before, oh boy…The Gunn is here to check on the first-year residents…
-Feathers? Tim is not impressed with Anthony Ryan’s “pubic patch”…a clown puking rainbows tee serves as part of Fallene’s…adorable.
-Rafael has not draped on his form, he wants to see his ideas on an live person…I wasn’t sure he would make it through…picture break….
(Al is shocked Ayna has only been sewing 4 months!)
-I just saw Bryce is wearing hot pink scrubs, lucky!…Models arrive…I may or may not like Bert, who said the famous “I’m not here to make friends” line in the promo….
-I think this challenge would have been more interesting if the designers had to design their own outfits, oh well.
-The freak-outs have begun!…(make-up/hair montage)…Runway time, lots of unfinished garments coming up…
(How do you like my PUH-jamas?)
-I love Michael Kors, I don’t love Nina Garcia, this has been well-established…guest judge? Christina Ricci.
-Okay, the runway is too crowded this week to assess….if I see something ugly, I’ll note….Anya’s is not terrible; I’m sure there are some flaws…Love Julie’s, the skater chick!…Anthony Ryan’s is all wrong…Rafael, UGLY…Bert, not bad, Mormon Josh…too basic…
-Same thing with who’s safe and who’s not, too many people, too little time!
Judgement….Anthony Ryan…colorblind?…trimmings aka pubic area…Rafael…yeah, not too good…”Flintstone disco patch”-Michael Kors…Julie…they are not liking it…even Christina…”sewing learning curve”????…odd pocket…Anya…never sewed silk before, or ANYTHING!…she’s wowing them, I think that whole, “I can’t sew” thing is a crock!…Bert…he’s done well with checkered boxer shorts…styling is a problem…Josh…fitting issues…he’s blaming the other designers for not telling him “it didn’t look good”…huh???…
-The winner? Halston’s old buddy Bert…Safe? Anya, Anthony Ryan, Julie, Josh,
-Auf’ed…Rafael or…
Until next time….

Project Runway Finale or Gretchen’s Revenge…

Halloween came early Thursday night.  Gretchen “I’m not a bitch but I play one on TV” Jones was crowned season 8 Project Runway winner.  My Mom called it; I was still holding out hope for Mondo Guerra to overcome his costume-like collection and he would take it.  Nope!  Even Andy South’s collection, which was extremely cohesive, was automatically denounced by Nina and Michael.  I’m not very happy with them right now.  I’m glad Heidi and guest judge Jessica Simpson stood up for Mondo.  After all, it’s Heidi’s show, right?  I usually like my winners of reality competitions to be a little more likable, and Gretchen NEVER was.  This is not like Russell losing Survivor, twice!  This is like an evil succubus who stopped at nothing to put down every single designer and then in the end, she came out on top. 
I’m sorry, but Gretchen’s collection, which showed first, was boring as all get out.  Gretchen tended to use the same drab colors all season long and with Fashion Week, she didn’t change her tune.  I call her collection, “Carmen San Diego Goes on Safari and She Hopes She’s Never Found!”  I mean, really?!?  The panel argued endlessly on whether Gretchen’s line was fashion foward enough.  I say NOT, because it wasn’t high fashion and it had zero imagination.  Her only leg to stand on was, her clothes were wearable, that’s it period.  Mondo’s was not totally wearable, but it’s what I expect to see at Fashion Week, it was imaginative, creative, and very daring.  I think you’ll see both Mondo and Andy show at Fashion Week next time and maybe beyond. 
So, am I done with Project Runway?  I’m not sure.  I just want someone with a better personality to win, that’s all.

They (Project Runway) Keep Pulling Me Back In!…

I know I declared not too long ago I would no longer be blogging about Project Runway and this post is NOT a jumping off point to start a regular recap every week again, hell the finale is just around the corner.  Instead, I’ll explain how I was pulled back in by the fashion reality show monster.  Thursdays, now, are a busy TV night for me and it just so happens, two other shows I watch both start at 8pm Central–The Office and Grey’s Anatomy.  Luckily, this new Project Runway season began a few weeks before the new TV season, so I didn’t feel too guilty or resentful.  I think it’s interesting how the show is now been stretched for the first time to an hour and a half; apparently Models of the Runway couldn’t keep the auidence wanting more; I never watched it.  And really nothing has changed, only now, you see the top and bottom designers bitching in a stew room before finding who is “auf’ed”.  We are also given a smattering of comments from the designers as the runway show is in progress, eh.  Oh, and we see the Project Runway kitchen!!!!  Compelling.
Easily, this season’s villian is 28-year-old Gretchen Jones
Oh, another Feist look-a-like.  I know every season we see someone who has an answer, a comment, or a criticism for his/her fellow designers, but Gretchen has certainly taken the cake and she has not shut up since day one.  Her overwhelming confidence is oddly mixed with a fake happy personality, which is irritating and is sickening to watch.  And yes, she’s won a challenge, but she’s NOT the front-runner like she thought she would be.  In fact, next week, one of her quotes goes along the lines of “I don’t want to be here anymore”, bitch, please!  You’ve annoyed us this long, why stop now????
The front-runner is someone who totally deserves it and his personality is quiet and is very calm:
32-year-old Mondo Guerra is nerdy, yet totally fabulous.  One of his fashion icons? Pee-Wee Herman!!!  He’s the kind of competitor we all root for and I’m hoping he stays calm and he can win.  He’s had his doubts, which all the designers do, not to mention his big confession last week he has been HIV-positive for ten years; it broke my heart.  He has much to gain, as much to as he has to lose, maybe even his life.  It’s pure poetry, but he’s a great designer and he’s made the show fun again for me.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love Tim Gunn, Heidi, and the judges…well, I still don’t like Nina…
So, thanks Project Runway, I’m back!

BAFFLED!

It appears my nightmares may become more vivid…
Well, I don’t how this got by me, but season 8 of Project Runway premieres July 29th at 9pm E on Lifetime…as you recall, I’ve renounced my blogging of the show, because IT HAS TO STOP!…Don’t get me wrong, reality competition shows can go on for years, i.e. Survivor, The Biggest Loser, Big Brother, Top Chef, however, Project Runway has lost its original wow factor!…the main reason? moving the show from Bravo to Lifetime…granted, there was a lengthy legal battle to get season 6 on the air after it sat on the shelf for several months…and airing season 6 needed to happen, but that’s where it should have ended…but you can’t end a show on a sour note, thus Lifetime is prolonging the torture…even the designs last season were very lackluster…I was hoping at least the fashion part of the show would stay intact, nope!…I’ve already aired my grievances on how the designers themselves have become a cliche’, from your average-looking, father of two to an over-the-top screaming queen…I use the same comparison for the female designers, just switch pronouns…and when you get tired of Tim that’s a bad sign…he’s still great as a mentor and he’s good for the occasional catty one-liner, but even he’s not wowing anymore…don’t even get me started on Heidi and Nina…I still love Michael Kors as a judge…but I just can’t commit to watching it much anymore…UGH!

Project Runway: Season Finale…

Well, here we are…the end of a very long road to crown the sixth winner of Project Runway…as I’ve said before, this is the last season I will blog about…the show has jumped the shark and it has lost its edge…

9:01pm: Carol Hannah is still very sick…Irina “there’s nothing I can do to help her…”–ya think?…Irina better NOT win…CH is so pitiful, Christopher is comforting her and he’s helping her out…he was good for something after all…I’m still disappointed he screwed up those last few challenges…

9:04pm: Why there’s Collier Strong….nap time…..I’ve never seen this hair dude….Irina is being very picky; God help Gordana…Althea’s hat is a nod to her tailor Logan…maybe?….she looks stupid is what I’m trying to say…Althea and Irina have similar 13th looks…this drama is boring…

9:08pm: Okay, there was a short scene of the girls getting ready to go out…they must have left at the crack of dawn…I know how that feels…

9:14pm: A “Fa-La-La-La Lifetime” promo featuring Tim Gunn just ran…you see what I mean???…why Bravo why?!?…Irina has to take over for Gordana “we have like no time left”….I hope her line is crap…the girls wake up at 3:14AM to get ready, go to Bryant Park, get everything prepped…I forgot the Project Runway runway show is an early morning one…

9:18pm: Tim is not happy about the models not being ready for the show…”I am about to lose it!”…Tim angry is not much different from Tim horrified…

9:24pm: Mass chaos!…Heidi in a pink suit…I believe we have Althea up first…guest judge–Suzy Menkes??? Althea is first…I’m not liking the headbands…overall?…boring…

9:28pm: Carol Hannah next…oh, please be good!…so much better, colors are very diverse…all her pants look good…love the dresses…OMG!…Malvin made it to the show!

9:30pm: Irina’s “New York” collection…gag me!…the hats are scaring me…some of the sweaters, outerwear are nice…ah, I get it…Grace Jones wear!!!…

9:34pm: OMG!..they just got a comment from Ari Fish…oh, I’m glad that didn’t work out…

9:39pm: Mom thinks Irina will win, I say Carol Hannah…Althea doesn’t have a shot at all….but you never know…Michael on Irina–“we’ve seen the ‘Warrior Woman’ before”…Heidi really likes it…Nina doesn’t like all the black…

9:42pm: Carol Hannah played with volume and structure…Heidi liked the 13th look…there’s a problem with cohesiveness…

9:43pm: Althea…Michael–“bravo for sportswear!”…I can see his point…separates work…this British bird is getting on my nerves…where did they dig her up???….Heidi liked all the designers’ 13th looks…

9:48pm: According to the judges’ comments, it’s anyone’s game…Nina was more sure than Michael who the winner should be…will there be a reunion show?…I don’t think so…so no “fan favorite”????

9:55pm: SEASON 7 PREMIERES JANUARY 14?!?….OH HELL NO!…here we go…..who knows?…CH auf’d!…NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!…that makes me sad, she was good, she went through so much there at the end…not fair!

9:57pm: The winner????….IRINA!!!!….I’m NOT happy…no more PR blogs my friends…this is it!….I’ll have another show to breakdown….

Any suggestions????…..Peace!
