Project Runway All-Stars, poodles!

Fun idea or overkill?



Lifetime is airing a Project Runway All-Stars Special on August 20th. It's going to be a 2-hour special before the premiere of season six.

And here are the designers:
Chris March - Season 4
Daniel Vosovic - Season 2

Jeffrey Sebelia - Season 3

Korto Momolu - Season 5
Mychael Knight - Season 3

Santino Rice - Season 2

Sweet P - Season 4

Uli Herzner - Season 3


We're coming down on the side of "fun idea." It's only a special, after all. Besides, we get to see some old favorites like Uli and Chris March and Daniel V. and Michael Knight again. Jeffrey and Santino occupying the same space at the same time? The world may never recover.

What amuses us to no end is that at least 4 PR alums called us over the past year to ask whether we thought it was a good idea to do it. Opinions varied, but none of the people who called us wound up doing the show. When we started this blog three years ago (Today! Happy Birthday, us!) we never would have imagined that any of the designers would be looking to us for advice. Power, bitches. The world is lucky that we wield it so responsibly.

Anyway, what do we think of this? And what's the format going to be? Multiple challenges? Let the opinionated speculation begin!


From myLiftime.com:
"Get ready for a fashion face-off on the runway like you’ve never seen before! Eight of your favorite designers from past seasons of "Project Runway" will go head-to-head in the workroom in a two-hour special "Project Runway: All-Star Challenge," airing on Thursday, August 20 at 8 pm et/pt.

The competition will be fierce, as almost all of these designers made it to Fashion Week during their seasons, and one stole the whole show. Plus, these designers won’t just be sketching for glory — they’ll have a shot at taking home a $100,000 cash prize too. It’s also their opportunity to show Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia what kind of lines they can create ... the three judges will be on the sidelines, ready to critique every last stitch. The good news for the designers is they’ll have mentor Tim Gunn by their side in the workroom to help keep them from committing any fashion faux pas."

I wonder if they'll do something along the lines of what Bravo is doing with the Top Chef Masters series this summer. It should be fun, in any case, but it wouldn't have bothered me if Jeffrey wasn't involved.


I think it's fun! It's just a one-off, after all.


Possibly overkill, but at the same time I couldn't pick 8 designers I'd rather have living in the New Gotham Apartments© together.

Worth a look if it goes ahead.


Happy Birthday, TLo! I don't comment often, but I adore the site. Can't wait to see you in fool bloom once Runway starts up again. :-)


As much as I love her, why is Sweet Pea there? There are plenty of other designers (like from Season 1 or 5) who could have thrown down in way more fabulous ways.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

You guys are the best. I have a hard time explaining why I'm laughing so much, but everyone I send to your site ends up being a fan.

You give so much time & extra effort for our enjoyment. I can only speak for myself, but I imagine everyone feels as I..

YOU BITCHES ARE THE BEST!!!!


I read the summary and think it sounds tres, tres fun!

Hmmmm, may I guess that Laura was one who sought advice? I think it wise she didn't participate. She doesn't need any more chaos in her life! and she is way to sane to try to share a stage with some of those personalities.


Aw, happy birthday, boys!

This all-stars special excites me, although it's a pity not a one from the inaugural season decided to do it.


Fun idea! I'm digging it. Hope Jeffrey has toned down a bit, because he's the only one cast who can harsh my mellow.

No season 1 contestants though.
I would love to have seen Laura, Austin, Chloe, Jay, Kara S., Kara J., Jillian, and Leanne as well.


All stars? Maybe more like second string. Even though I like many of the designers showing up for the special, it would have been nice to have some of the winners as well.(Oh yeah Jeffrey won, I seemed to have blocked that out). Also, where are some other favorites like Laura and Jillian and Emmett and Kara Janx and Nick??? You know I'll watch it no matter who is on.


"Project Runway Masters" - I'm picturing the producers trying to get Diane Von Furstenburg, Betsey Johnson, and Catherine Malandrino to go through the same paces a typical PR contestant does. In my head, the scenario ends when Betsey Johnson cartwheels onto the producer's head and snaps his neck between her thighs.

Seriously, though, this sounds like a lot of fun, although I could go a lifetime without seeing the Angry Peanut ever again. The 5 minutes he was on "Top Design" was 5 minutes too much, thank you.

Happy B-day, TLo!


Awesome! I love love love Uli!


Fucking awesome!!!!


YAY!!! More PR!!!


I don't think they're "second string." Every one of them showed a collection in Bryant Park, after all.


This is going to be fun, I can't wait.


Well if it's soemthing similar to what Top Chef did a few years back with their christmas special then it could be fun. They had an all stars and did multiple eliminations in round robin during the course of the evening

If there was a quick series of eliminations say 2 at a time then it could be entertaining and people battling it out for a quick 20 grand prize or money for charity.

Personally I think it's kind of sad that Jeffrey is doing it. While I was never a fan of his on the show the man does have talent and as a PR winner you would hope he had more going on with him that he would decline

Frank


Happy B'day, Tlo!

I can't wait to see Santino competing against Jeffrey.


Happy birthday and thank you for all your hard work!

I think it is a great idea. Will be a fun special and a reminder of how much the show is loved which Lifetime probably wants to reinforce. Not sure they should have had Jeffrey involved though, since he has already won the whole thing. Other than him, I think the choices will be a lot of fun.

Cannot wait until this show is back on the air!


it seems it would be fun, just to see some nice faces again (Chris March, Korto, Michael Knight and Uli) but it seems that the ones who some of us would have loved to see (Laura, Chloe, Emmett, Kara Janx, Austin) have already a lot of good things going on for them, so they don't need the extra exposure. It seems that those who agreed feel that they needed the extra airtime.
I will definitely watch!


sorry I forgot to say:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TLO!!!! FELIZ CUMPLEANIOS!!!!!
:-)


I am just excited to see Mychael Knight!! I love him!!!


I am SO looking forward to this. I've missed Santino, and it'll be interesting to see if Jeffrey really looks as bad as he does in that pic you posted.

Happy blog birthday, boys!


happy birthday darlings. wow 3 years, what the hell did we do without you boys?

looking forward to the allstars. glad it will be a 2 hour show.


I think its an absolutely great idea.


Get rid of douchebag Jeffrey and it's a BRILLIANT idea!


CanIGetYouAnything?

Fantastic! I think I'm throwing a party on Aug 20th.


SO COOL!!!!!!!


Has it really been three years already? Wow! That means you're either preschoolers in Blog Years or senior citizens in Blog Years. I can't decide which. Either way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND THANK YOU!!!

As for PR All-Stars, I've been pleasantly surprised by Top Chef Masters, so I'm willing to hope that the designers have now amassed enough experience and confidence to yield some great creativity. But I worry, because of certain (ahem) personalities, that too much of a premium will be placed on creating contrived drama. Should be a real litmus test on what the new production team values most.


I miss Chris March so much : o)


Can you disclose which designers called you about this?

I'm nosy. No harm in asking.


Haooy Birthday, Tlo!


Oh My - that pic of Jeffrey Sebelia made me kind of sick.

I would have liked to see Wendy Pepper, just to smack him down.

A team of ALP, WP and Santino?


Happy, happy Birthday, TLo -- make a wish!

OH MY GOD Angry Little Peanut is back. If only Laura Bennett had agreed to do it.


Looks fun but harmless.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TLo!!! It totally ruins my morning when you don't have a post, but you make up for it when you have 3 within a couple of hours. Thanks for sharing your fabulous personalities.


bitchybitchybitchy

I think it's a fun idea, although I could cheerfully live without ever seeing Jeffrey again - plus, he won PR3. Why bring back a winner? Oops, there are people in the world whom he has not already reduced to tears or insulted, and that makes for drama.

I suspect some of the other designers whom we fans might like to see already have lots going on, and don't have the time for this.


ALP vs. Santino Rice now THAT I have to watch.


LaFemmeFataledeNY

Happy Birthday, bitches!!!


Mychael Knight is so cute :)


I like the idea but at the same time don't you think it's going to kind of overshadow the new designers premiere?


As you bitches say...


I. CAN'T. WAIT.


I think it's awesome idea, I'm so excited, after all this wait, PR overload, overjoy!!!


Is the 100K prize money for the designer's personal pocket or is it for the charity of the winning designer's choice like on Top Chef Masters?

TampaBay


I hope Korto wins this time.


YES!!!! THIS IS FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!


LifeTimeforHomos

Lifetime ROCKS!!!!


I wanna hear Chris March laugh again. Is he going to design something with human hair again? I bet it'll be something shocking.


Ooh I like this! This is a good batch of designers. Only one winner, but I prefer it that way. Let the people who didn't win have another go. I only wish there was someone there from season 1, like Austin or Kara Saun.


I am moving on the 15th of August, and I have sold nearly all of my furniture in the process. My dad asked why I didn't sell my TV, since its going to be hard to move.

Its because I'm not sure Ill be able to get a new one before August 20th, obviously.

He rolled his eyes, but I know all of you beeatches will understand!

And Happy Birthday TLo!


Hmmmm....Santino and Peanut...Oh dear....


Happy Birthday, Tlo! I LOVE your site. Thanks for everything you do.

I'm a little disappointed that we're stuck with the bad guys, but that's alright, we have Chris and Korto.


Daniel Vosovic of Season 2 - Can't wait!!

I alwys loved daniel V and am very surprised he has not done more than he has. My two all time favorite final collections were Daniel V and Laura Bennett.

TampaBay


I hope it's a great challenge that really puts them to the test.


No Laura : (


Of course none of the winners are included, well, except ALP. I'd love to watch PPS compete against Jay. LOL.


GREAT NEWS!! The more PR the merrier.


Happy Bday, Tlo!

Now, back to doing my Happy Dance!!

HK Dude - Excuse me for being in pop culture shock and lost in the wilderness but who is "Angry Little Peanut"?

Sounds fun! Wonder why no Season 1 designers, though?


Mariana (The Unoriginal)

Angry Little Peanut and Sweet P?

Gotham Tomato is going to have a heart attack.

Honey, time to read TLO archives!


Happy Birthday Daddies!!!!


And I am definitely on the "fun idea" side of things because their keeping it brief. I would watch it for Jeffrey and Santino together alone.


" Isara said...

They're probably over it. Can You blame them?


I'd say Korto or Uli is going to win.


All Star Shmall Star
No Kara Saun? Laura? Emmett?
Fail.
And OMG HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOYS!
I am MORE excited for the blog than for the actual new season. Especially screen caps. You know I LIVE for the screen caps.


I can't wait to hear Heidi say "I'm sorry Jeffrey, but you're about fucking time OUT!"


@RyanGross Not really, but for 100K, I would have thought the pain would have worn off ;)

Besides, could you imagine Austin working with/against with Chris March?? Might have had to get the fine ladies of RuPaul's Drag Race to guest judge!!

I wish Malan was in that lineup. He didn't really thrill me during the show, but he has really matured. I would kill to wear any of his stuff.


BEST. NEWS. TODAY.


Happy BD, boys!!


I think it sounds fun! I like most of these designers so I'll enjoy watching whatever challenge(s) they are faced with.

Sure looks like Lifetime is very invested in PR!

True, I'm surprised Malan isn't included. His clothes are beautiful.

HA. Amen!!


Happy birthday! That's exciting :). This show sounds like fun. Like another commenter said, a lot like the Top Chef X-mas special they did a few years ago. It is always fun to see what people are up to.


You know Uli is going to make some print something and Nina is going to say that she has seen that before.


As one of the winners on the show, I would NOT return for something like this. What if you don't win?


Next time you talk to Laura Bennett, let her know I selfishly wish she had done the All-Stars special because I love her hilarious, fabulous self on my television as frequently as possible.


Yipee!


Go Daniel V!!!!


More PR! More PRG!

Priceless!!!!!


Well Korto once said "I don't want to have to stomp on somebody for talkin' about my Mama!"

So watch your ass, ALP!


TampaBay - I thought you'd been around long enough?

ALP = Angry Little Peanut = Jeffrey = #%@#^&@$Q

Exactly, one of the best PRG nicknames ever.


I say FREAKING AWESOME


I work with one person who once she opens her mouth (which is all the time) I say in my head:

"I.CAN'T.STAND.THE.SOUND.OF.HER.VOICE!!!!"

Is this my subconscious admitting that I actually miss Santino?


Boys, I'm expecting a TLounge Post with lots of drinks for this.

Santino is actually very entertaining. I still remember some of his funny lines. The question is: who is he going to pick on this time?


ULI! ULI! Uli!


AN ULI EXPLOSION!!!!



Oh, I miss Laura Bennett!


I have to give credit to Lifetime, they're doing everything they can to keep PR live and running.

I absolutely agree that Santino is unforgettable, but I have an absolute love-hate relationship with him (and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.)


Laura isn't there because we didn't need to see more versions of the two vaguely different go-to dresses she always creates. Bo-ring.

Puccii-Yea I have but I am slow on the uptake. Also, I have my own little nic-nac names for the designers I do not like. I never bothered to take the time or expend the energy to dislike that Jeffery person. I just pretended he was not there after the "Mother's Challenge".

TampaBay


As long as I get me some Chris March I'm fine with whatever they do!!!!

Happiest of Bloggy Birthdays :-)


Ugh Jeffrey. Otherwise, sounds like fun.


Michael, Michael, Michael!!!

Oh, how I have missed him!

YAY, YAY, YAY!!!!!!!


TLo: Happy Birthday! Today is the anniversary date of a career I retired from, also. (F.y.i. I work at home now, about the same money, different type work. Gives me time to enjoy the blog and all I have learned.)

All-Stars - Big Fun! So much talent. I don't think
a previous winner of a season by rights should be in there for a chance at a double-dip, tho. I have a feeling some alumni declined the invite.

It will be fun to watch but another heartbreaker.


'Scuse me: MYchael!


Jeffrey is the one who made someone else's mother cry, isn't he? That's enough to make me hate him without knowing anything else about him.


This sounds like big fun. I'm looking forward to it.

Happy birthday, boys. You have a great blog.


No Austin Scarlet? Opportunity lost. (Last seen on tv showing coture wedding gowns to rich private patrons at home.)


Santino and Jeffrey are actually friends - Santino convinced Jeffrey to try out for the show, as I've heard - so I doubt there will be a smackdown between them.

Anyway, this looks like a lot of fun.

Am I the only reader who LOVED Jeffrey? I got tears in my eyes when he won.


Minou Mechant

As long as I get Chris March, Korto, and Uli on my screen I can tolerate Jeffery slithering and farting his way through a two-hour special, I suppose. Other than that, I'm all for it after the slopped together mess that is The Fashion Show.


Daniel V!! Daniel V!!

YES, you are.


No season one designers. I was so hoping Jay or Kara would do it.


Happy B-day, btdubs!
I think I've been reading you since the beginning and love you guys.
Keep upi the great work.


Jay would've been a great addition, but I guess he's pretty much over doing business with Heidi and Harvey W.


I can hardly blame the ones that came in 2nd or 3rd for wanting to try again, but a former winner? Why?

What's Jeffery supposed to be doing in that picture? Looking for a piece? Utter fool.


Happy 3rd Birthday!

I love the idea of an all-stars special. What fun. Too bad Austin isn't in that group, though.


I think I'm more excited for this than Season 6!

Can't wait to catch up with Chris March. Love him!


I love this! Although I would have liked to seen someone else than Jeffrey. I don't have anything against him, but it'd be nice to give that opportunity for a cash prize to someone who hasn't already won. Haha, honestly, I'd love to see Bradley and Elisa in the same room together. Oh, and Kayne too.

It'd be awesome if they did this with a cast of all fan-favorites.


another laura

Happy Birthday! Smooches from a loyal minion.

As for the all-star show, I'll watch. I'd like to hear from Uli again. Lie many, I'm curious that Jeffrey is doing it, having won. He must be having a rough time of it.


TLo-
Happy Blog B-day!
It's been a wonderful ride these past years.
XOXO


Happy Birthday and many, many, many happy returns!

Can't wait to see most of these designers back in action again, although I could do without Jeffrey. Should be a fun couple of hours.


why there's no kenley and wendy?

kenley + wendy + santino + jeffrey = madness!!

it's only an episode right?


I read about this in thye NY Post last week. And the blurb specified that Laura declined to participate but didn't mention any others wh turned it down.

I'm sure I'll watch but overall this is a pretty uninteresting (to me) group. It will be nice to see Uli and Korto and Chris (I hope one of them wins) and I'm curious to see if Mychael has recovered his mojo afte his disastrous final collection but everyone else ranges from meh to outright distaste for me.


Well, as I recall, Santino used to work for Jeffrey. So Jeffrey ought to be more than able to respond to any mind games that Santino tries. I predict that the interplay between these two alone will make the show well worth watching.

Can't wait for the fireworks!

Also, what a brilliant marketing move on Lifetime's part. Between this special, the first PR episode, and the models show afterward, we'll be riveted to that channel for three and a half hours. In terms of establishing numbers with which to lure big advertisers, this is one helluva great plan.


bitchybitchybitchy

I absolutely agree that Santino is unforgettable, but I have an absolute love-hate relationship with him (and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.)

7/22/09 1:06 PM

Santino's and Nina's exchange over his demented Black Forest lingerie collection still lives in my memory-especially Nina's now classic line that "It's not aesthetically pleasing", which is also one of the top ten PR understatements.

BTW, if I"m remembering correctly, Jeffrey and Santino are friends/acquaintances.


I like the idea...but seriously why are Jeffery and SweetP there? I would have loved to see Kayne, Laura or Kara Janx. Everyone else is cool, I'm especially excited to see what Santino and Chris will come up with. This should be some good bitchy fun.


"Power, bitches. The world is lucky that we wield it so responsibly."

Honeys, you are Power Bitches. And the world is lucky to have you. Happy Blog-birthday!


Congratulations. darlings.

======================
My 9 year old does a dead-on "Where's Andre?" impression.


first off, happy birthday to you!

secondly, i myself have often wondered what would happen if jeffrey and santino were in a room together... i can't wait to find out.

and lastly, i would watch absolutely anything with daniel v on it. what a dream.


It would have been nice if they eliminated Jeffrey Sebelia since he had already won, and maybe brought in a Season 1 designer. I mean, where are they?
That being said, of course I'll watch it!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITCHES!!!

wishing you continued success and fame in your fabulous blogspot!


Yeeeeeeeesssssssssss! Wooo hooo!


Not exactly on topic, but has Santino had some work done on his face? He looks "rested".

And yay for Allstars!


OK, the S6 designers waited more than a year for this and now they have to share the spotlight with washed-up designers? Not cool.


Happy Birthday my dears!

Thank you for being the gayest part of my life!

XXOO

(can't wait for the Special - I say mini challenges and behind the scenes look backs at the good old days would be great! Plus a good dollop of what they are all currently working on would be great too!)

P.S. How many days till TLOUNGE is back, honeys???


And I forgot, Happy Birthday, guys! You're the best PR site out there.


i haven't read through all the comments, so i'm sure someone has already mentioned this...

but it speaks volumes that jeffrey is doing this. what, the first 100K wasn't enough? he's already frittered it away and needs to win another? they shouldn't allow winners to compete in this special.

definitely would've liked to see season 1 designers, but i guess they've all moved on.


Ok, I am going to be completely unoriginal and copy someone else's comment ... but it is just a great line that I have to ...

Imagine me sitting at the bar, already having quite a few drinks to liven up the evening and then TLO walk into to the room, and over all the party noise, you hear a fierce (but slightly slurry) voice scream above the loud party noise:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITCHES!!!

I just start laughing, and I can't stop myself, because it is such a funny scenario, me, with a party hat on, and a drink in my hand.

Anyway ...

HAPPY BLOGGIN BIRTHDAY BITCHES!!!

Just sayin-

P.S. More likely screaming, half drunk, but so totally filled with love, dahlinks!


The impression I got from reading TLo about S3 (I read all of TLo before actually watching the previous seasons of PRUS, and only broke down because of the hiatus and the TFS posts weren't cutting it)--wasn't the scuttlebutt on the blog at the time that Santino had made/designed one of Jeffrey's dresses, and Laura B. in particular was convinced of it?

You know, I actually liked Santino--he never did insult ppl to their faces, "only" to the cameras in a conspiratory way. It's like he didn't expect them to hold what he said in any esteem at all, and was surprised they *would* be offended by him. (I guess the proper forum to say "I haaaate Diana Eng's little-girl voice!" is as an anon on a forum or something, rather than to the PR production ppl egging you on--w/e, there had better be some singing and impressions on camera! :DDDD)

(Also, I really would like to see what his aesthetic is like now, since his final collection was so subdued.)


Happy Birthday!!! Many congrats, you guys are simply the BEST!!

This All-Stars thing seems like it will just be plain fun. I think maybe too many are taking it too seriously. Sure, we all have our favorites from the PRs...but, I, for one am just going to sit back and enjoy (well, except maybe for Jeffrey, who I NEVER enjoyed!).


Where is the divine Laura Bennett? Without her, this is not a line up of All Stars.

You say that as if a hundred grand would set someone for life. He won that money 3 years ago. If I recall correctly, he used the bulk of it to pay back taxes on his company (which, last I heard was still in operation).


I like this idea - this has raised Lifetime's stock in my book. I have been hankering for Bravo to do something like this since they did a similar thing with Top Chef.

$100K for what I assume is a few days work.... WOW!


AWESOME!


I LOVED Jeffrey's final collection! It'll be nice to see him on the show again.


Here's a horrific thought: What if ALP wins TWICE? He won't tho. No one to job out his final sewing to. (I didn't believe him.) Evil of me, I know.


Linensn'Things

Happy Birthday, Tom & Lorenzo!!!!

Great news, I can't wait for this. I wish they had someone representing Season 1, but that's OK, I'll still enjoy it.

Fuck. LOLOLOLOL

I didn't even think about that.


I think it's an interesting group - several designers I'd love to see at work again. Especially Chris March. I loved his attitude.

And what I hope for the designers is that the ability to do the show and have some fun with it weighed as heavily as schedule, desire for prize money, and considerations of image. If they're there with that attitude, it'll be worth setting aside the couch time, laying out the finger food, mixing a few cocktails and making it a party.


How the hell is SweetP an all-star?? Not by any stretch of the imagine does she even come close. She was kept on to pander to housewives, period.

It's more like these are the designers who aren't busy (but I'd have thought that Korto had better things to do).

--GothamTomato


Not to forget:
Happy blogging birthday, TLo!

Pat yourselves on the back. Or each other. Or have a handy minion salute you.

.

I doubt that any PR alums (with the exception of Laura, who is already wealthy) have anything better to do than trying to win 100 G's. "Oh no, sorry, can't...that's my laundry day. Maybe some other time." Riiiight.


Now Lifetime is just trying to make me blush. With all the time it's taken to get this season on the air, it appears that they are willing to pull out all the stops to get the viewers back. An extra 2 hours of PR never hurt anybody.

If only Jay had deigned to appear on the show, my lil' ole gay head might just have exploded.


Happy birthday, TLo!


TLo said...What amuses us to no end is that at least 4 PR alums called us over the past year to ask whether we thought it was a good idea to do it. Opinions varied, but none of the people who called us wound up doing the show.

Fun game!
My guesses, Jay McC, Laura B, Emmett McC, and Chloe D. Chloe being the only one I'm on the fence about.


I think it looks fantastic! Quite honestly, I think Sweet P is the only one I can't see winning it.


OMG Jeffrey looks worse than ever!


Siren, you hit my guesses as well, but I'd trade Malan for Chloe.

Has it been three years? I thought I joined late, but it seems that I only miseed S3 recap and the Hair Harpy Cage Match!

Happy Blog-B'Day!!!


Happy Birthday to my favorite gay boyfriends! Funny, it seems as though you have been part of my daily life for longer than that!

I will enjoy seeing all the alums no matter what, so more power to Lifetime. They seem to be willing to go all out for PR, don't they?


Happy Blog B-Day!!!

I'm really looking forward to this newest PR pre game show, MINUS Jeffery (alp). I hated him the first time around and from the obnoxious picture it doesn't look like he's redeemed himself. I hope someone steals his ugly guyliner and shoves it up his ass. He's such an ugly little troll.

There, I feel just a little better getting that out!


I'm excited to hear that the All-Stars special has finally come to fruition. I hope it's good and not a big fat disappointment, like so many specials of this type seem to be. I do not want to feel embarrassed for these people.

I haven't seen his name yet, so I'll just say it --- where's Jay?!? I still adore Jay McCarroll and after meeting him, love and admire him even more. I would have really enjoyed seeing a lineup that included; Jay, Austin, Kara & Andre --- the originals. I wonder if they were among those who contacted TLo?

YEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

I hope Santino and Chris are at their bitchiest best. What's not to like?

Happy Birthday PR. You two are brilliant.


My thought (since you all begged to hear it) about all the "Where's Jay?" commentary, is that it didn't seem as if Jay was thrilled with his reality t.v. experience the first time around, and I'd be surprised if he wanted to re-visit it.

7/22/09 3:15 PM Not exactly on topic, but has Santino had some work done on his face? He looks "rested".



Screw that. What about the Donald Trump combover?

Oh, and what about that STUPID, STUPID, STUPID Tattoo on Angry ex-druggie?


PR All-Stars? Bring it on.

Dying to see what Chris March comes up with. After all the goofy challenges, to without choice have to make clothing out of household items, food or a car..only Chris would voluntarily use human tissue. Love him.

I'm watching PR Australia to get me through the next few weeks. Not highly recommended. God help me.


I think it looks like Santino put on a pound or two and his face filled out a little. He looks healthier. His hairstyle is a change but don't know that it's necessarily a comb over. I liked Santino but he did cop an attitude a time or two with La Nina. I want to see how his style has progressed.

On a related note (reality tv competition show -- make me a supermodel) Jonathan Waud recently did an interview w/ Bello Mag. Hot pics in the issue as well :D

OMG - what a yummy BD present to share with us all!

(of course, now i have to get busy wiping the drool off the laptop)


HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Jeffrey??? WHY OH WHY??? Would have loved to have seen Austin Scarlett instead!


Happy Birthday, Darlings! Muchos besos!

This could be fun. Just wish it were Tattoneck-free. Ugh.


Happy B-Day!

3 years ago, who woulda thought this blog would have earned you all those millions shilling for Bravo :) What have you called the yacht, btw? ;)

Anyway, I think LB, JMcC, EMcC are locks. Who was the 4th :)


I'm in. I hope they bring their sense of humor with them.


I bet Stella inquired about this.

I would've preferred to see her participate TEN fold over Tattoo neck boy. She's the REAL rocker, not just a poseur.


Daxx and Anon,

Maybe the fouth was Stella?


Fantastic, I just wish they had included my favorite Uncle Nick.


Overkill or not, I can't wait. I love this show and it's been too long.


Excuuuuse me, Gotham Tomato. Most glad to see the Sweat P in the mix. Hey, she ain't Stella, but she's my sister.

Warm memories - the Kiki "Today Show" men's shirt (?) and "tie". Oh, dear. Hey, she took it like a lady and a broad, and that is good. O.k. the producers saw that incredulous look on Nina's face a lot of the time re. the P, but, so what of it? The lady was a calculated train wreck who hung in their until the decoy ending. She earned her All-Star spot, there, GT. Anyway I want her to avenge her Cavalli peacock dress. That's the fun and point of such a show with SUCH A BIG PURSE. Bring it on!


Am I the only one thinking 2 hours of "all stars" 1 hour of PR and then another hour of Models is a LITTLE BIT much for one nite?
Yes I will DVR this and the models, proably will DVR Runway to watch again and again, but this is TOO MUCH. They are going to kill PR with too much.

Congrats on your 3rd year TLO, you bitchs ROCK.


There's no Austin or Nick, so it's a no for me.


Definitely needs more Laura. :(


Happy Birthday!
I wonder what human article Miss March will be basing her collection on, maybe we will finally get to see a merkin sweater in our lifetime. LOL!
I cannot wait to watch! ULI for the win!


Can you imagine if Bravo reproduced any of Chris March's final collection for sale, would the hair skirt have been made with cheap hair extensions?


I'll watch for sure, but Jeffrey? Ewww :P


Ummm...aren't Santino and Jeffrey FRIENDS? I read somewhere that that's how Jeffrey got started on the show.

So I don't think it would be as chaotic as everyone might think.


C'mon...no Kenley? That would be TV gold.


I wish it was a competition for non-winners only.


KORTO!!! SHE WAS ROBBED!!!!

If I wanted to see criminals, I'll watch 'COPS'.


People I wish were participating:

Uncle Nick
Stella
Blayne
Wendy Pepper
Jack Mackenroth
Kayne


Sweet P and Chris March aren't finalists. What are they doing there?

Judging only by what some of the Bravo items look like as photographed, NO. They would have used the coarse, shiny, almost-instantly-frizzy synthetic of cheap doll's hair.


@shinything

PRAus not reccommended? Hm, what to do after watching PRUS S3, then.... :\

PRCanada S2 definitely reccommended, btw. :D The field is kind of shallow and I am bitter at who didn't get to show at Toronto Fashion Week, but there are some great/annoying histrionics and Mean Girls and bitchery. And I wouldn't argue with the winner they chose, which some were cranky about in season 1.


"VirginiaHam said...

They both showed decoy collections in Bryant Park, so they both made it pretty far.


YES!!!! Chris March is back!!!


Happy Birthday, guys! I love you both : )


That is a LOT of Project Runway, I don't know, maybe I'll just DVR it.


" Ali said...
As much as I love her, why is Sweet Pea there? There are plenty of other designers (like from Season 1 or 5) who could have thrown down in way more fabulous ways."


I agree with you. How about Kara Janx?


I hope it's not all about Jeffrey and Santino acting like jackasses.


"SUS said...

Fun idea! I'm digging it. Hope Jeffrey has toned down a bit, because he's the only one cast who can harsh my mellow.

No season 1 contestants though.
I would love to have seen Laura, Austin, Chloe, Jay, Kara S., Kara J., Jillian, and Leanne as well."


YUP. Kara, Chloe, Austin, oh my god, yes, Austin.


Here's what I read about Chloe:

“She’s a little worried about having to deal with Santino again,” adds the insider.
From OK magazine.


Can you blame her?


I wish they had their own season, not just a special. That's what Lifetime should have done while we were waiting for the new season.


Lifetime is really doing its part to hype Project Runway. Very cool.


What? No Jerrell?


Angry Little Peanut is back. What a nightmare!!!


"Anonymous said...

Well if it's soemthing similar to what Top Chef did a few years back with their christmas special then it could be fun. They had an all stars and did multiple eliminations in round robin during the course of the evening

If there was a quick series of eliminations say 2 at a time then it could be entertaining and people battling it out for a quick 20 grand prize or money for charity."


That sounds great, but I don't think this one is for charity.


I just realized that's going to be like what? 4 hours of Project Runway? That's a little too much.


Okay, I'm crazy excited about this, even if I'm the only one in the world who adores Jeffrey Sebelia.
