Big, fat Sally-Field-style tears were shed at 10:58 EST last night in the PRGay living room.
Our girl won. She FINALLY won.
For a dress that we only liked.
Don't get us wrong, it's pretty. It's also, as per usual, well-made and we're as happy as the judges were to see her make something that she herself wouldn't wear. She used her fabric choices well, because at first glance, they looked more appropriate for widow's weeds than on a youthful cocktail dress. And big ol' kudos to the fabulous Camilla for sashaying that thing down the runway like she was at a party for single young billionaires and in the market for a husband.
One nitpicky thing that we didn't like was the way the lace extends past the under-fabric all around the neckline. It looked like scallopped edging and gave it an uncharacteristically (for Laura) homemade feel to it.
Still, it's a cute dress and Laura was long overdue for a win. The "Sad Mommy" edit was pure setup and we figured she was going to win it when the first tear was shed.
We were once again with friends watching the show. Here's the difference between straight women and gay men. When Laura cried, all the women in our living room were like "Awww....sweet. That humanizes her." or "It's the hormones."
We, on the other hand, were all, "WHO MADE MY BITCH CRY! They need to get their ASSES BEAT! C'mere, girl. Let's go shopping."
No more salt and pepper shakers!
