In case you Project Runway fans have been wondering why we have not seen our beloved Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn in the 6th installment of the show that has brought us Santino Rice and Christian Soriano, I give you a post.
This show has been in a legal limbo for quite some time now (since last Spring!). Producer Harvey Weinstein tried to move this Bravo series to Lifetime, a move the owner of Bravo (NBC Universal) didn't like. Weinstein sued back and then Lifetime decided to sue everyone for s**ts and giggles. Well while everyone is sue happy, Klum, Season 6 designers and the viewing public are enraged.
All episodes of this missing series have been shot in Los Angeles and recorded. And as most of you probably know, New York's Fashion Week went off in late February (unlike Runway) on schedule. The three Season 6 finalists did show their collections . . . whether we will be finding out who these anonymous designers are is yet to be seen. Now I've gotta wonder, when and if we ever do see the lost installment, will the fashions still be (as every AI judge likes to say) "current"?
Well as Heidi says, "in fashion, you're either in or you're out." Oh, I hope this beloved show of mine is not out. I am not ready to say Auf Wiedersehen to it any time soon.
Please, Mr. Weinstein. End this legal mumbo jumbo and just give me my Runway back!!
